Build your knowledge on the influence of water chemistry and address treatment of your plant's performance.
This interactive two-day course is built around forecasting water quality and addressing treatment plant performance issues arising from changing feed water conditions.
By the end of the course delegates will understand:
- understand the influence of water chemistry on process design and how to use this knowledge to optimise performance
- design new treatment plants and size equipment using comprehensive software that integrates material and heat balancing, equipment sizing, stream property and solubility prediction.
Who will benefit?
- Process engineers
- Consultants and operators involved in concept design, sizing and / or operation of existing physico-chemical water treatment plants involving conventional membrane, resin, electrolytic or thermal technologies
- A comprehensive overview of essential water quality properties for treatment plant design basic theory around chemical equilibrium, reaction kinetics and redox potential
- An introduction to solubility modelling, the impact of dissolved gases on redox and equilibrium chemistry and how process kinetics can affect scale formation and corrosion
- An overview of most technologies used in water treatment
- Modes of action defining separation for each technology
- Key advantages and disadvantages of each technology
- Guidance on technology selection
- Developing a feed water scenario for typical and boundary conditions process design considerations, constraints, performance objectives and assumptions for a given feed water specification, generate a first pass integrated process design and mass balance
- Identify which parameters impact equipment performance and treated water quality
- An overview of each unit operation, their key process parameters (design / operational) and how they are used in each model simulate equipment performance.
- Learn how to optimise a process design for performance objectives by refining process design parameters for each unit operation.
- Model boundary conditions to establish the performance limitations of a process design.
- Produce vendor data sheets and RFQ documentation for equipment pricing.
- Calculate power, chemical and consumable operating costs.
- Estimate turnkey capital costs for a greenfield application.
