    Workshop: Practical management of membranes in a drinking water treatment plant
    17 June 2015 
    SMEC Building, 20 Berry Street, North Sydney

    Whereas textbook learning about treatment plant operations provides sound grounding for engineers, operators or technically-oriented scientists, learning from experience offers an extra dimension. Technical and other professionals working in membrane drinking water treatment plants will greatly benefit from hearing the practical advice from those who have worked at a plant specifically tasked with dealing with normal operations - and the occasional stuff ups! Some routine procedures, such as back-washing of filters and removing fouling, sound straight forward in theory but when a power surge unexpectedly interrupts a backwash or strange fibrous material refuses to dislodge from a membrane, trouble-shooting skills are required. This Workshop will give valuable insight into dealing with such problems that disrupt operations and affect production.
