Mechatronics involves the combination of the disciplines of Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering with computer technology. The purpose of this work is to incorporate mechatronics technology into a novel experimental apparatus and perform a series of experiments to generate data on the filter cycle using this novel technique. The experimental data generated are compared with results obtained from a selection of existing theoretical models which successfully demonstrates the advantages of the novel technology used.
