  • Industrial Waste Treatment, Volume 2



This course is designed to train operators in the practical aspects of operating and maintaining industrial wastewater treatment plants, with emphasis on the use of safe practices and procedures. Information is presented about the importance and responsibilities of an industrial treatment plant operator, detailed safety procedures, the regulations governing industrial wastes, sources of wastes, and methods for preventing and minimizing wastes at the source. Operators will learn how to operate and maintain flow measurement equipment, preliminary treatment processes (equalization, screening, and pH adjustment), physical-chemical treatment processes (coagulation, flocculation, and sedimentation), pressure and gravity filters (including membrane filters), physical treatment processes (air stripping and carbon absorption), and processes for treatment of metal waste streams. Operators will also learn how to operate and maintain treatment plant instrumentation equipment and systems. This course focuses on actual operating procedures and teaches operators how to analyze and solve operational problems.
