Effective chemical application is essential to the treatment of water and wastewater. Participants will start with a review of units, constants, periodic table, and basic math formulas used to calculate dosages for various types of chemical feed applications. Then commonly used chemicals and products will be broken down into groups such as oxidizers, sulfur compounds, metal salts, and polymers. Treatment goals, process monitoring, and process control techniques in addition to other “need to know” information will be discussed for the more commonly used products within each group.
Next participants will focus on calculating chemical feed dosages. Operators will progress at their own pace through progressively more difficult quizzes. A final quiz will be given towards the end of the class which will cover the basic course requirements. At the end of class students will be provided with answers to all the workshop quizzes so they can complete and grade them at home. Please note: this course does not cover activated sludge processes. The class is intended for operators of all levels of experience and expertise however, the final quiz will be challenging to most of the operators in the class. This class is limited to 15 participants. Each participant should bring a calculator to this class that he/she is familiar with.
