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.

 

This 3 PDH online course is intended for industrial, chemical and mechanical engineers, as well as, maintenance personnel and construction professionals interested in learning about the use of chemicals for cleaning industrial water systems and equipment such as boilers, heat exchangers, cooling towers and chillers.

Learning Objectives

  • Learning about pre-operational cleaning of new industrial water-using systems and equipment
  • Learning about remedial cleaning of industrial water systems and equipment to restore them to optimal operating condition
  • Learning about chemical cleaning methods that have largely superseded mechanical cleaning methods
  • 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
  • Learning about the recirculating cleaning process for boilers

COURSE TITLE: Calculation of Gas Density and Viscosity
COURSE NO: H02-008
Calculation of Gas Density and Viscosity
Course Highlights

This engineering online PDH course contains a discussion of, and an example calculation of, the density and viscosity of a specified gas at a given temperature and pressure. In this course, the Redlich Kwong equation will be used for calculation of the compressibility factor of a gas. The Sutherland formula will be discussed and used in example calculations. Another method for calculating the viscosity of air at a specified temperature and pressure will also be presented and discussed.

 

The density and/or viscosity of a gas is often needed for some other calculation, such as pipe flow or heat exchanger calculations. If the gas temperature is high relative to its critical temperature and the gas pressure is low relative to its critical pressure, then it can be treated as an ideal gas and its density can be calculated at a specified temperature and pressure using the ideal gas law.  If the density of a gas is needed at a temperature and pressure at which it cannot be treated as an ideal gas law, however, then the compressibility factor of the gas must be calculated and used in calculating its density. The Sutherland formula can be used to calculate the viscosity of a gas at a specified temperature and pressure if the Sutherland constants are available for the gas.   

 

This 2 PDH online course is intended for chemical, mechanical and environmental engineers. After completing this course, you will have knowledge about methods for calculating the density and viscosity of a gas at specified temperature and pressure. 

Learning Objectives

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

  • Ability to calculate the density of a gas of known molecular weight at a specified temperature and pressure at which the gas can be treated as an ideal gas
  • Ability to calculate the compressibility factor for a gas at a specified temperature and pressure, using the Redlich-Kwong equation, if the molecular weight, critical temperature and critical pressure of the gas are known.
  • Ability to calculate the density of a gas at a specified temperature and pressure for which the gas cannot be treated as an ideal gas, if the molecular weight, critical temperature and critical pressure of the gas are known.
  • Ability to calculate the viscosity of a gas at a specified temperature if the Sutherland constant for the gas is known and the viscosity of the gas at a suitable reference temperature is known.
  • Ability to calculate the viscosity of air at specified air temperature and pressure.
  • Ability to make all of the calculations described in these learning objectives using either U.S. or S.I. units.
