Seminars

See more clearly what is going on in ion exchange plants and feel more confident about the function and operation of such plants.

Benefit from our experience in checking and analysing problematic plant conditions.

Learn what the results of a resin analysis can tell you.

Academy seminars DM SL

Seminars in Leverkusen

Our basic courses are aimed at anyone interested in ion exchange technology, both experienced and newcomers, chemists and engineers, as well as plant managers, laboratory assistants and chemical technicians. We usually split the dates between different target groups so that you can in any case get the most out of the courses.

For participation in our advanced course “Water Chemistry” we assume some previous knowledge and therefore strongly recommend prior participation in one of our basic courses mentioned above. (“Basic” lays the foundation, but does not have to mean simple…)

If you still have questions about our seminar programme, registration or about our offer of seminars at your company location, please feel free to contact Ms Bellanova, she will be happy to help you.

Seminars at your premises

We are also happy to hold our seminars at your premises. The minimum number of participants should not be less than five. However, up to 25 participants are also possible.

If this is of interest to you, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will prepare a customised offer for you. In particular, you will then have the chance to help shape the content to suit your needs.

If you still have questions about our seminar programme, registration or our offer of seminars at your company location, please feel free to contact Ms Bellanova, she will be happy to help you.
