Gain a practical understanding of ion exchange systems for water treatment.
Ion exchange has been used for water treatment purposes for decades. Most residential water softeners utilize an ion exchange process to remove hardness. Many municipal water treatment plants and industrial facilities include ion exchange systems for removing hardness, heavy metals, chlorides, nitrates, sulfates, organics, and many other contaminants. There continues to be advancements in ion exchange technology. This course summarizes ion exchange configurations and includes examples to prepare engineers for real world applications.
The following topics are covered:
- Cation versus Anion Exchange
- System Configurations
- Field Testing
- Design Criteria
- Process Flow Diagrams
- Lifecycle Cost
