Seminar and workshop

Water Chemistry for Demineralisation Plants

Topic: Chemistry of acids and solutions, Organic matter and its removal, Silica and carbonic acid problems, Measuring and troubleshooting

Who is it for? Everyone who is interested in DI-plants, process engineering and chemical engineering.

When? 08. + 09.10.2024

Where? Lindner Hotel BayArena, Leverkusen

Requirements: This seminar is an advanced seminar. Previous participation in one of our basic seminars beforehand is definitely recommended.

This seminar is just right for you if …

… you are already familiar with the basic characteristics of a DI-line (function, operation, failure analysis and resin properties)

… and would like to learn more about the field of TOC reduction.

… you are interested in the chemistry of silica and its particularities in the DI-line.

… you have always wanted to know how to calculate the measurement results in a DI-line before taking a measurement.

… you know that measurements only help if you know in advance what the results should be!

The following topics will be discussed during the seminar

  • Dissociation and association in solutions
  • Behaviour of carbonic acid, acids in general, pKa values
  • Classification of organics
  • Pretreatment methods and TOC reduction
  • Adsorption behaviour of organic matter on ion exchangers
  • Chemistry of silica and its adsorption in ion exchange plants
  • Water chemistry calculability in IA plants
  • Advanced measurement techniques and surprising results
  • The intensity of the different sub-topics can be adapted to the interests of the respective group of participants. The content presented here is simplified to give you an overview.
