Lunch is Provided Courtesy of Mark Flynn, LLC, Bulk Water.
Filtration is one of the most important steps in the treatment process. Often filters are commissioned and placed into service and then forgotten about. Performance slowly degrades and eventually the water system is faced with a bank of barely functioning equipment in dire need and lengthy and expensive rehabilitation.
There are basic measures, however, that can help to continually optimize operation. There are simple maintenance procedures that can keep a filter performing as designed for much longer. Basic maintenance and attention can not only prolong life and performance, but can help to avoid budget busting overhauls.
This presentation will offer information on equipment, and tips for keeping treatment systems optimized and in good condition. In addition, we will look at the role of build-up and deposits on process equipment, filter media, storage and distribution and how to practically manage a clean system from front to back.
