The requirement for pH adjustment and waste treatment is a common demand in many industries, and active waste treatment systems offer the widest versatility in treatment options. This webinar will focus on the theory of pH adjustment with specific emphasis on batch, continuous flow, and hybrid system design. Additionally the following areas will be discussed in detail for the different system configurations; residence time, treatment chemistry, process design, component selection consideration, and control system technologies. Case studies, piping and instrumentation diagrams, and 3D modeling examples will also be reviewed along with advanced treatment schemes—including thermal waste treatment, membrane systems, metals precipitation, and organics removal.
