WMSoc Training Courses - Cooling & Boiler Water Chemistry Part 1 - W016



City & Guilds accredited
ONE-DAY COURSE: 9am - 5pm
Lunch and refreshments provided

Printed delegate materials provided

Recent entrants into the industry, people redefining their jobs, and those requiring a refresher course.
This course gives a broad overview of water treatment.
NB: Delegates with no chemistry background, and those who require refresher training in secondary school chemistry, should complete W013 Foundation Course in Water Treatment Chemistry before attending this course.
This course is designed to:
  • Give delegates a firm background in the objectives and control of water treatment of cooling systems and steam boilers.
  • Explain how pre-treatment plants function.
  • Consider the control of these systems. 
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
Delegates only need to have secondary school knowledge of chemistry to attend this course.  Those who have never had this (or have forgotten it) should attend the foundation course (W013) as preparation. 
60 minute written exam with 70% pass mark. A resit is possible for anyone failing the exam for an additional fee.
6 CPD points awarded.
