An Introduction to Treatment of Closed Industrial Water Systems
This online engineering PDH course presents best practices for treatment of closed industrial water systems used to provide heating, cooling, or both for buildings and industrial processes.
The term "closed water system" refers to a water system that is used to provide heating, cooling, or both for industrial processes or facilities. The system is sealed (closed), sometimes under pressure, and is not open to the atmosphere. No evaporation takes place and, with good operation, water is lost only minimally from the system.
In general, water treatment for closed systems is much easier than for open systems. Makeup water is needed only to replace seal leakage and other incidental leakage. Because of the small makeup water requirements of these systems, they require little chemical treatment, which can be added intermittently as needed. Once properly treated, the system water does not form scale and has little or no corrosion potential. Two main types of closed water systems are used at many installations: hot water closed heating systems and chilled water closed cooling systems.
This 3 PDH online course is intended for mechanical engineers and other design and construction professionals wanting an introduction to the technologies, equipment and operational practices for treatment of closed industrial water systems used to provide heating, cooling, or both for industrial processes or facilities.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
Learning about treatment of hot water systems
Learning about treatment of closed chilled water systems, brine systems, and glycol systems to supply cold or chilled water for cooling processes and air conditioning
Learning about treatment of diesel engine jacket cooling systems
Learning about water treatment programs for both closed hot water and closed chilled water systems to control corrosion and deposition of microbiological organisms
Learning about treatment of makeup water
Learning about corrosion control program options;
Learn how to implement sulfite-caustic, nitrite-azole, and polysilicate-azole treatment programs
