Industrial Makeup Water - 3 PDH
This course provides introductory information about sources and treatment of makeup water for industrial water systems such as those serving cooling towers.
This course will give you professional tools that will help you to understand the function of makeup water for industrial water systems and its sources and treatment.
This course discusses makeup water for industrial water systems. Industrial water systems usually use fresh water and, often, potable water. Makeup water, often referred to as “makeup,” is fresh water that is added to an industrial water system to replace water lost by blowdown, evaporation, wind drift, leaks, steam, humidification, or withdrawal from these systems. The usual source of makeup water is the potable water supply. This source is water that has been conditioned and is usually of a very uniform quality from day to day. Other sources of makeup water could include groundwater obtained from shallow or deep wells, or surface water from streams or holding ponds. These sources are not treated to the extent that the potable water source is treated. Still another source is reuse water (i.e., water that is “used” and reclaimed and not rated as potable).
