Cooling Water Treatment Training – Cooling Towers & Cooling Water Systems

Cooling Water Treatment Training

World-class cooling water treatment training delivered by leading experts.

WTS 0050 “Cooling Water Treatment & Evaporative Cooling Systems” is an intensive one day cooling water treatment training course developed by the industrial and process water treatment specialists at WTS.  The course is designed for plant operators, water treatment service engineers, facilities managers, maintenance and engineering contractors, and those with responsibility for commercial and industrial cooling towers and other cooling systems.

WTS 0050 provides a review of common  cooling water systems and cooling towers including open recirculating and evaporative cooling systems. Candidates taking this course will gain an understanding of the issues that affect the performance of cooling systems including the formation of scale, suspended solids, metallic corrosion and bio-fouling, and how to deal with them effectively.

Additionally, the course also covers a number of practical examples, including how to conduct basic fault-finding investigations and the development of cost effective cooling water treatment solutions.
