• What is Empty Bed Contact Time, and why is it important?

• Benefits of proper flow distribution

• Benefits of a cone bottom vessel design

• Why use lead lag vessel configuration in your design?

This webinar will discuss the use of granular activated carbon (GAC) to help manage disinfection by-products in your system. 

The webinar will also provide an introduction to activated carbon, and will include information about: 

• Disinfection By-products

• What they are, how they are formed, and why they occur;

• Removal technologies;

• Removal via GAC; and

• Precursor removal as well as removal of formed DBPs.

• Emerging Disinfection By-products and their impact on water quality

• EPA’s comments from the third 6 year review regarding potential future regulation and areas of concern.

This webinar is designed to provide a basic understanding of carbon, including starting materials, processing techniques and properties.

Educational Outcomes
* Basic Understanding of Activated Carbon
* Knowledge of Carbon Starting Materials
* Understanding of Processing Techniques

Learn how air strippers are being used to remove contaminants like disinfection by-products (THMs) and other VOCs from drinking water at treatment facilities.
The principles behind the air stripping process are introduced and several types of stripping methods are discussed. The unique advantages of sliding tray air strippers in achieving water quality targets while lowering the costs of installation and maintenance, especially under high fouling conditions, are
examined. Case histories of major remediation, process and drinking water
treatment projects will be presented.
