A Review of Chemical Feed Pump Technology and Chemical Feed SystemsA review of chemical feed pump technologies and chemical feed applications. 1 PDH
Above Ground Self-Priming Pump StationsStudents will leave with the knowledge of important design features that will lead to improved operation and above ground self-priming package selection for collections systems. They will also learn important pump and system package features that will help to improve the reliability of these units.1 PDH; 1 DEC
Advanced Grit Management - Design Concepts and TechnologyThis training session will discuss grit removal from an academic point of view, starting with analysis of existing endemic grit, common misconceptions proven out through lab analysis, failures of conventional grit removal equipment and advanced grit management design solutions.1 PDH; 1 DEC
Advances in TelemetryTelemetry and scada training relates to operation / maintenance/ management of a water/wastewater operation/distribution system because it is a means by which collecting and monitoring real-time data, scada shows an overview of how each key piece of equipment in the system is performing. Collects information from sensors on equipment and sends signals through remote terminal units and PLCs. Scada provides the ability to pinpoint anomalies in the system functions back on collected data, thereby allowing the customer to promptly take action on the issue.1 DEC
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
Centrifugal Pump and System CurvesParticipants will learn the basics of centrifugal pumps, various pump designs, and key design differentiators. A hands-on demo will teach pump and system curves and their interactions using realtime “what if” scenarios. NPSH; a difficult concept to understand will be taught via PPTs, and viewed in the demo. We will engage students in conversation to further reinforce the subject matter.1 PDH; 1 DEC
Clarifier SeminarWastewater Treatment plants use clarifier pump systems for many different applications. This seminar will address how to select, apply, optimize and maintain various types of clarifier pump systems. 1 DEC
DBP Prevention & Treatment OptimizationThis presentation provides an overview of DBPs, including formation, compliance regulations, prevention, treatment optimization strategies, and available technologies. Case studies will also be reviewed. It offers valuable information for water professionals to apply in their daily operations, ensuring the best potable water quality.1 PDH; 1 DEC
Decentralized Wastewater Treatment Designs with a Focus on Biologically Active Filter TechnologyDiscussion of the advantages for biologically active filter technology and design considerations for decentralized wastewater treatment systems for nutrient removal.1 PDH; 1 DEC
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; 1 DEC
Membrane Bioreactor Technology and ApplicationsThe presentation will provide valuable insight in the selection process, implementation, and long-term operations of membrane bioreactor systems.1 PDH; 1 DEC
Odor Identification and Treatment Technologies for Wastewater Collection Systems and Treatment PlantsThe presentation will provide valuable insight in the on how odors are measured, the chemical makeup of odors, what criteria should be used for the design of odor control equipment, and the odor control treatment technologies currently available.1 PDH; 1 DEC
Onsite Hypochlorite & Disinfection GenerationThis presentation will provide an understanding of how chlorine can be generated onsite for use in disinfection of water. Example equipment used in the onsite generation of chlorine will also be presented, along with operation and maintenance.1 PDH; 1 DEC
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
Positive DisplacementThe presenter will explain how positive displacement pumps work, and how they differ from dynamic (centrifugal) pumps, and review specific types and applications of positive displacement pumps.1 PDH; 1 DEC
Pressure Sewer For New Sewer and Sewer RepairWe will sewer feasibility with a case study, sewer system improvements with a case study and other pressure sewer applications with case studies to backup the presentation.1 PDH; 1 DEC
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
Sewage Handling, Self-Priming Factory Pump and System TourThis 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 different types 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; 6 DEC
Sludge PumpingEvery wastewater plant has multiple sludge pump applications. The attendee will learn about the differences (and similarities) of each sludge application and what pumps can be applied reliably on those applications.1 PDH
Submersible Pump StationsKnowledge of important design features that will lead to improved operation and submersible pump selection for collections systems. They will also learn about design considerations for wet well geometry designs that will reduce pump clogging.1 PDH; 1 DEC
Total Blower ControlTo learn about opportunities to automate WWTP to reduce capital and operating expenditure while avoiding difficulties when implementing automation.1 PDH
Unattended Operation Using Remote Monitoring and SCADA Optimizes Dryer Capacity and PerformanceThis presentation will provide an understanding of how dryer operation can be optimized using SCADA and remote operations so as to maximize the operational up time of equipment and provide a more efficient use of biosolids equipment.1 PDH; 1 DEC
