ChemTreat at IWC 2016
ChemTreat will be a bronze sponsor and exhibitor at the upcoming IWC annual conference. Check out our presentations and workshops we will be giving at the event.
Event: IWC has a strong educational focuse and creates a forum for addressing both technical and business challenges in industrial water treatment. The conference presents the latest trends in technology and new application developments across a wide range of industries. ChemTreat is involved in several aspects of the event as a sponsor, exhibitor, along with presentations and workshops throughout the conference. We are excited to learn, to share our own expertise, and network with peers. The conference brings together researchers, engineers, educators, suppliers, and contractors, giving ChemTreat the opportunity to meet with many who are involved in the industrial water treatment process.
ChemTreat Presentations to Look Out For
Wastewater Treatment, Rare Earth Metal Impregnated Media for Anion Removal by William Henderson, John Richardson, Nicholas Seymour, and Vladimir Djukanovic
Wednesday November 9; 8:10am
Phosphate and other contaminants found in industrial effluent are a concern for the environment. One consequence for phosphate discharge is algae blooms which are the result of excess nutrients in lakes and rivers. Local, state and federal regulations in many areas of the United Sates have become more stringent, limiting the amount of phosphate that can be discharged over a given period of time. The most common removal methods for phosphorus include co-precipitation with iron or aluminum salts, resulting in significant sludge formation, reverse osmosis which is energy intensive or anion exchange which lacks anion selectivity leading to premature exhaustion of resins. A new method has been developed for selective removal of phosphorus from wastewater utilizing inorganic rare earth salts and organic polymers. This exciting new technology results in a reduction of sludge produced during precipitation of phosphorus and is more economical than current co-precipitation methods. In addition to phosphorus the removal of other anions has been studied.
Advanced Cooling System Corrosion and Scale Control Technologies, session chair by Ray Post
Wednesday November 9; 8:00am – 12:00pm
Legionella Risk Management Workshop by Jon Cohen
Thursday November 10; 1:00pm – 5:00pm
Recent regulations, updated guidelines and the first published U.S. standard have placed the spotlight on managing risks associated with Legionellosis and other waterborne pathogens. A comprehensive understanding of these issues and how to manage the associated risks is now an essential tool for water treatment professionals, building owners and facility managers. This short course will provide the basic tools to understand Legionella, current methodologies for microbial control and especially Legionella, an overview of ASHRAE/ANSI 188-2015, and current guidelines with a focus on cooling water systems.
