COURSE TITLE: Algal Indicators in Streams
COURSE NO: H03-007
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Algal Indicators in Streams
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course summarizes the application of algae as indicators of nutrient pollution in water quality management. It describes the use of algal indicators to develop water quality diagnostics for nutrient pollution in the United States (U.S.) and then reviews scientific developments in the use and application of algal indicators across the world.

 

Algae are ubiquitous and essential components of all stream ecosystems. They are the primary energetic source for many stream food webs, fixing carbon from the atmosphere through photosynthesis, which is then transmitted through the web via consumer pathways.

 

Algae have a long history of use and possess many of the features valued in ecological indicators. They were part of the early saprobien indicator system development in Germany and were one of the first assemblages developed for use in biological assessment in the United States.

 

This 3 PDH online course is intended for chemical and environmental engineers and water quality professionals who are seeking to utilize algae to detect the presence of nutrient pollution and to estimate the risks of nutrient pollution in adversely affecting the condition of stream ecosystems.
Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Gaining general background information on algae
  • Familiarizing with the current algal sampling programs in the United States
  • Learning about the research on algal assessment and indicator using in streams

COURSE TITLE: An Introduction to Chemical Cleaning of Industrial Water Systems
COURSE NO: H03-003
An Introduction to Chemical Cleaning of Industrial Water Systems
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course will introduce you to methods for cleaning industrial water systems with chemicals. You will learn about pre-operational cleaning which is performed to prepare water-contacted metal surfaces to receive chemical treatment to provide protection from scale, corrosion and microbiological growth.  You will also learn about remedial cleaning to restore water systems that have been fouled with scale, corrosion products and microbiological growth due to inadequate or ineffective water treatment.  Examples of industrial water systems for which chemical cleaning are applicable are boilers, heat exchangers, cooling towers, and chillers.

 

Maintenance of an effective water treatment program is essential to minimize scale and corrosion problems in industrial water systems; however, scale and deposits will often form and require remedial cleaning. If not removed, these scale and water-caused deposits may impact the safety of operations personnel, interfere with heat transfer, and cause excessive damage to, or destruction of, the water-using equipment.

  • Learning about chemicals used for chemical treatment of industrial water systems
  • Learning about the use of hydrochloric acid to remove carbonates scale with lesser amounts of phosphates, sulfates and silicates
  • Learning about hydrochloric acid's limitations where stainless or galvanized steel is part of the system
  • Learning about the use of sulfamic acid to remove scale from metal surfaces
  • Learning about the importance of isolating equipment to be cleaned from other parts of the system using valves, rubber blankets, wooden bulkheads with seals, inflatable nylon or rubber bags, rubber sponge-covered plugs, or blind flanges and steel plates with rubber seals
