Course overview

To gain an understanding of the design principles, practice and operational experience of conventional and novel physical separation processes.

Course description

introduction to physical processes principles relevant to understanding the design, operation and fault diagnostic of the range of physical processes encountered in water and wastewater treatment.
modern screening designs: bar racks, fine screens, rotating drums, moving belts, removal, disposal of retained solids
clarification processes including sedimentation, high rate systems, dissolved air flotation and their applications
filtration design and practice including backwashing, filter floors, factors governing media selection and application in water and wastewater treatment
membrane processes including materials, configuration, design and operation of porous membrane systems
sludge processes including source characterisation, theory and practice
key problem particles: algae, NOM and wastewater covering there characteristics and how they impact on eth selection and operation of physical processes.
On successful completion of this course the delegate will be able to:

Understand the fundamental physical phenomena governing solid-liquid separation processes.
Understand the factors affecting the selection, design and operation of conventional and innovative physical separation processes.
Be able to design and specify appropriate operating conditions the unit processes for physical separation as applied to water and wastewater treatment.
Execute and asses laboratory work examining physical processes used in the solid-liquid separation sector.
