ONE-DAY COURSE: 9am - 5pm
Lunch and refreshments provided
 
WHO FOR:
Recent entrants into the industry, people redefining their jobs, and those requiring a refresher course.
This course gives a broad overview of water treatment.

OBJECTIVES:
This course is designed to give delegates a firm background in the objectives and control of water treatment of cooling systems and steam boilers. It explains how pre-treatment plants function and also considers the control of these systems. 
 
 
TOPICS COVERED:
Introduction to the following:
  • Basic Water Chemistry
  • Base exchange softening of raw water to produce water suitable for boiler make-up (and often applicable to cooling systems)
  • Thermal reduction of oxygen in boiler feed-water
  • Review of internal treatment programmes for boiler water and control of blowdown
  • Methods available for treatment of condensate
  • Factors affecting concentration of open recirculating cooling water
  • Cooling water treatment programmes to control scale, corrosion and sludge in cooling systems
  • Methods of controlling microbiological growth in cooling water
 
PRE-COURSE PREPARATION:
Delegates only need to have secondary school knowledge of chemistry to attend this course.  Those who have never had this (or have fogotten it) should attend the foundation course (W013) as preparation. 
 
ASSESSMENT:
60 minute written exam.
