Advanced Activated Sludge Process Control & Optimization
November 4, 2015 @ 8:00 am - November 5, 2015 @ 3:00 pm
The objective of this class is to give activated sludge front-line supervisors and operators, and process control operators and engineers, a more in-depth understanding of the activated sludge process. With this understanding, effluent quality variability and process energy usage can be reduced. Topics to be presented include: wastewater characterization, biological N & P removal, the importance of sludge quality, measuring and controlling sludge quality, WAS flow control, BOD conversion vs. removal, RAS flow optimization, secondary clarifier performance diagnostic testing, and a state point analysis.
“I have been in the wastewater treatment profession for over 30 years, the last 23 as a state technical assistance provider. I recently attended Eric’s Advanced Activated Sludge Process Control and Optimization class and can truly say, hands down, it was the most informative and interesting class of the many I have taken over the years. Eric is a highly energetic and engaging presenter and is obviously passionate about his work and teachings. He brings with him a vast knowledge of the subject matter and is very capable of explaining engineering principles in a manner that operators can understand. If you want to be the best operator that you can be, this is one class you should not miss.”
