Granular Activated Carbon and Ultraviolet Advanced Oxidation Process
This webinar will cover granular activated carbon (GAC) ultraviolet advanced oxidation (UV AOP) processes that are used in the advanced treatment of reclaimed water. The webinar will highlight the individual technologies and the combined use of these two technologies. It will include treatment components, monitoring strategies, process parameters, instrumentation, and critical control points.
This webinar, along with experience and additional training, may prepare you for the Advanced Water Treatment Operator® Grade 3 certification exam.
rs, you should be able to:
After completing the webinar, you should be able to:
Understand the impact of feed water quality on performance efficiency
Describe the GAC and UV AOP processes
Identify critical control points
Compare and contrast instrumentation and control systems
Define performance parameters such as dose, UV transmittance, and empty bed contact time
ABOUT AWTO® CERTIFICATION
Drinking water, wastewater or water reuse operators working at facilities using advanced water treatment technologies and related control processes may be interested in earning the new, voluntary AWT Operator (AWTO®) Certification.
AWT Operators protect public health by ensuring a supply of safe and high-quality drinking water from advanced water reuse facilities.
Operators who currently hold a Grade 3 certification for Wastewater Treatment Operator or Water Treatment Operator in California or Nevada are eligible to apply for the AWT3 exam. Be sure to download and read the candidate handbook at AWTOperator.org.
