A Deep Dive Into Pressure Sewer System Ownership CostsThis course will provide supporting documentation of real-time costs of ownership and capital cost planning to fit the asset management goals of wastewater collection system managers.1 PDH; 1 DEC
All About Low Pressure Sewer SystemsThe fundamentals of low pressure sewer systems & the viability of the systems as a sustainable solution for failing conventional sewer systems. Includes an overview of low pressure sewer systems, system equipment, operation & maintenance overview, & system design principles.1 PDH
Benefits of Progressive Cavity PumpsThis presentation will provide information to engineers and operators for the design and maintenance consideration when specifying and repairing progressive cavity pumps. It will also review a new and innovative approach to maintaining flow output over the pumps lifespan.1 PDH; 1 DEC; 1 DOH
Blended Blower TechnologiesIn this course, you will learn how to implement blended blower technologies and operate them correctly to reduce capital and operating expenses.1 PDH; 1 DEC; 1 DOH
Comparing Water Pump TypesThis course will review the basic fundamentals of how centrifugal pumps work, how to read performance curves, and review key terms of use (GPM, TDH, BHP, NPSHa, NPSHr) are. In addition, the presenter will go through several examples of pump selections with the audience responsible for selecting and justifying their pump selections using the above referenced terms of use.1 PDH
Engineer's Day At The FactoryThe engineers will be touring a local manufacturing facility. The Environment One Corporation manufactures sewer grinder pumpsystems. On the tour, the engineers will walk through the process stopping at various points along the way to understand themanufacturing processes and continuous improvement techniques. Also, the testing and quality assurance areas.1 PDH
Fundamentals of PumpingThe 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 pump's critical parts to check periodically. The packaged lift station demo provides an overview of basic pump hydraulics, how to determine NPSH and system head curves, and troubleshooting.4 PDH
Importance of Filtering SeminarLive screening demo that will provide an overview of the various screen types, their importance, and the appropriate screening equipment for treatment systems.1 PDH; 1 DEC
Mechanical Seals Basic TrainingThe subject matter covers mechanical sealing devices and proper use in a pump system to improve rotating equipment.1 PDH
Mixing FundamentalsThe basics of defining the variables required for optimum mixing & the proper selection of a mixer based on process & mechanical guidelines. 1.5 PDH
Parallel Series PumpingThis course will help you to understand system hydraulics with regard to Series, Parallel and Parallel-Series pumping in a collection system.1 PDH; 1 DEC; 1 DOH
Performance Capacity Improvements with Unattended OperationThe presentation discusses how the biosolids treatment with drying and management of the biosolids drying system with unattended operation can reduce manpower and increase the performance.1 PDH
Peristaltic Pump Technology - An OverviewPeristaltic pumping technology is one of the – if not the most common pump types in water & wastewater treatment today. Having knowledge of these pumps can be very beneficial in the operation, maintenance, management of existing pumps at WTP or WWTP and could also be a benefit in specifying or procuring of new pumps in the future.1 PDH; 1 DEC
Pressure Booster SystemsThis seminar will demonstrate the various types of pressure booster systems used for different applications and required operations. It will also educate attendees on various product types and control sequences depending on the required pressure boost application.1 PDH
Providing a Sustainable Solution for Sewer Renewal with Pressure Sewer SystemsPressure Sewer Collection Systems use individual residential pumps to convey wastewater flow to a central treatment system, lift station, gravity sewer, or force main. This course will cover the history, overview, advantages, considerations, and operation & maintenance of Pressure Sewer Systems.1 PDH; 1 DEC
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; 1 DEC
Total Blower Control - Optimizing Your Process CorrectlyIn this course, you will learn about the opportunities to automate WWTP to reduce capital and operating expenditure while avoiding difficulties when implementing automation.1 PDH; 1 DEC; 1 DOH
Wastewater AerationAeration is the largest energy user at most municipal wastewater treatment plants. The one-hour presentation will include essential “Aeration 101”, as well as a review of alternate technologies that can achieve the desired results.1 PDH
Wastewater UV DisinfectionThe theory of ultraviolet disinfection will be provided, along with operational theory and practical application.1 PDH; 1 DEC
