The design of reverse osmosis treatment systems utilizing spiral wound membrane elements is affected by numerous factors such as feedwater quality and temperature. The quality of the permeate stream is a function of the specific design, and requires a thorough understanding of a number of design parameters.
This workshop utilizes a collaborative problem-solving approach whereby participants work together in groups in a casual environment.
Data are initially provided in handouts to give the participants the necessary tools, and then a problem is handed out to each participant. They then work in groups of 4 to 6 to collaboratively solve as many as eight problems, one at a time.
For each problem, after an appropriate period of time, the problem solution is handed out and discussed.
This course is directed towards the engineer and other professionals involved in the design, construction, operation and maintenance of reverse osmosis systems.
This course provides the participants with the tools to understand the numerous factors affecting reverse osmosis system design and performance.
