Submerged, Attached-Growth Bioreactor ProcessAttendees will learn about this process that utilizes a Biologically Active Filter (BAF) operating as a sequencing batch reactor. The reactor maintains a high fixed film biomass concentration averaging an equivalent of 12,000 Volatile suspended solids per liter. A system with a small footprint with superior treatment results.1 PDH
Fundamentals of Pumping**The glass face pump is a live demonstration that simulates suction and discharge/cavitation and air entrainment as well as moving conditions of service. Attendees will work together to tear down a pump and put it back together, teaching them maintenance and the critical parts of the pump to check peridodically. The packaged lift station demo provides an overview of basic pump hydraulics, how to determine NPSH and system head curve, and troubleshooting4 PDH
Gorman-Rupp Factory Training **This training will help those attending to better understand the concepts and interaction of the different types of pump curves, what NPSH and cavitation are and the different type of pumps are available. It will also educate the operators on how to take proper gauge readings and interpret them. This will empower them to properly troubleshoot their systems and keep their plant running more efficiently.6 PDH; 9.5 DEC
