Overview

This 1-day course is aimed at sales personnel, engineers and managers working for OEM’s, contractors and consultants in the water and waste water treatment industry that need to be able to understand membranes and membrane plants. Membranes are usually polymeric and are widely used in many industries. The polymeric modules are prevalent because of its cheaper cost and can be used in many water and wastewater treatment applications.

Membrane processes can be subdivided according to a number of criteria, for example:
  • pore size/molecular weight cut-off (microfiltration, ultrafiltration, nanofiltration etc.),
  • driving force (pressure difference, concentration or temperature gradient, electrical potential, etc.), and
  • medium (gas-gas, gas-liquid or liquid-liquid).

The course will focus on large scale water/wastewater treatment with membranes, and will give the participants a good understanding of the issues that need to be discussed with various customers and end users. After attending this 1-day course, the participants will have the opportunity to gain the following:
  • Good understanding of water chemistry;
  • Understand the properties of different types of membranes, and selection of appropriate membrane chemistry;
  • Able to perform the basic design of a membrane plant for water/wastewater treatment;
  • Understand pilot plant operation;
  • Understand and apply cleaning membrane techniques;
  • Application of Digital Water/Wastewater - Sustainability Framework.

What You’ll Learn

Water chemistry related to water and wastewater treatment using membranes. Different properties of membranes and how to select suitable membranes:
  • To explore the mechanical and physical properties of PES, PVDF, PSU, CA and PP membranes.
Different operation modes of membranes:
  • To exploit the strengths and weakness of both dead-end and cross-flow membrane configurations
Designing using a design tool:
  • To see the impact of a changes in key variables such as Turbidity, Total Suspended Solids (TSS), Flux, Temperature, etc on membrane flux.
Understand and apply cleaning membrane techniques:
  • To see the impact of a changes in key variables such as Turbidity, Total Suspended Solids (TSS), Flux, Temperature, source water (ground water, surface water, sea water, secondary effluent, etc on the membrane flux and during Operation/Maintenance.
