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 Experts to Look Out for:


A Holistic Approach to Micorbiological Control in Cooling Systems and the Environment by Raymond Post, P.E., Prasad Kalakodimi, Ph.D. and Doug McIlwaine, Ph.D. 

Presented by Raymond Post, P.E. 

Tuesday, November 14; 1:15pm – 5:00pm

Phosphorus is usually the limiting nutrient for algal photosynthesis and is also an essential nutrient for bacterial growth. Phosphorous compounds are widely used in cooling systems to control both corrosion and deposition. This increases the requirements for chlorine and antimicrobials, resulting in undesirable chlorinated byproducts and increasing costs. This paper presents a holistic approach to biological control, involving the use of totally non-phosphorus and non-zinc chemistries for controlling corrosion and deposition in cooling systems.


Workshop: Legionella Risk Management by Jon Cohen

The IWC Workshop program selects experts in their field to conduct an in-depth technical study of current topics to registered attendees. 

Thursday November 16; 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. New guidelines
and proposed standards are near completion, that will add much more information available to the public. 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. Information on how to prepare for water management plans and Legionella response will be provided. Other new and upcoming standards and guidelines will be discussed, with
a comparison against previously released documents..
