Develop skills required for monitoring, trending requirements, scalant, and foulant removal.
High Purity Water From Ion Exchange
The study of various parameters of high purity water related to ion exchange.
Ion Exchange Operation
Operations and regeneration of single-bed and dual-bed ion exchange units. Includes the study of sodium, chloride, hydrogen, and hydroxide cycles.
Maintaining High Purity
The principles of operating post ion exchange equipment: ultraviolet irradiation units, final filters, minimization of dead legs, and periodic disinfecting of high purity water.
Pretreatment Troubleshooting
Operating, monitoring, and troubleshooting of reverse osmosis pretreatment equipment. Includes multimedia filters, activated carbon beds, and the prevention of scaling, fouling, and chemical attack.
Scaling and Fouling Troubleshooting
Interpretation of a water analysis report; calcu- lation of the scaling potential for reverse osmo- sis units, and the use of scaling compounds, scale inhibitors, and acid dosages.
Advanced Reverse Osmosis Monitoring and Cleaning
The advanced troubleshooting procedures and tech- niques required for identifying and correcting reverse osmosis problems, including probing, profiling, element autopsies, and chemical cleaning.
Feedwater and Pretreatment
Quantification of contaminants through the use of laboratory analysis, analytical equipment, and raw water equipment for a high purity water treatment system.
Ion Exchange Troubleshooting
Math, chemistry, laboratory analysis, and proce- dures for troubleshooting high purity ion exchange equipment.
Post Ion Exchange
The principles, operation, routine maintenance, and troubleshooting of post ion exchange pro- cesses. Includes study of ultraviolet irradiation units, final filters, waste neutralization, water solvents, heavy metal removal, and the safe hand- ling of industrial gases and bulk chemicals.
