DHP Seminars Presents Advanced Reverse Osmosis Troubleshooting Week

David H. Paul, Inc. will provide four seminars during event, to be held April 21 to 24 in New Mexico

David H. Paul, Inc. (DHP) is holding their annual Advanced Reverse Osmosis (RO) Troubleshooting Week in Farmington, N.M., April 21 to 24. DHP is a training company, not an equipment vendor, so attendees benefit from up-to-date, unbiased information.

The training is held in the same building as DHP’s RO membrane element autopsy lab and hands-on training area. Through demonstrations and special opportunities, the eight-hour seminars will provide a thorough understanding of many common problems and how to troubleshoot and resolve them.

This year’s event includes four seminars.

The Reverse Osmosis Operation and Maintenance seminar, held April 21, provides training in the latest RO treatment technologies. This course covers fundamental information on systems from the smallest point-of-use/point-of-entry systems to the largest brackish water and seawater RO/nanofiltration (NF) units.

The Reverse Osmosis Monitoring and Troubleshooting seminar, held April 22, will focus on the monitoring and troubleshooting activities that will allow you to catch problems at an early stage when they are reversible. Thorough understanding of required monitoring activities, performance trends and interpretation of data are stressed. This course provides the technical information that is often missing from startup training and manuals. All information is also applicable to NF units.

The Expert Troubleshooting of Membrane Systems seminar, held April 23, will teach the troubleshooting techniques that David Paul uses when consulting at a RO or NF facility. This seminar provides the experience and knowledge of a consultant that has been troubleshooting RO/NF system problems for more than 28 years. He will teach tips and techniques for uncovering even the most complex and multi-faceted problems.

The Expert Biofouling Control seminar, held April 24, will discuss recent discoveries and case studies in the pharmaceutical, power generation, semiconductor and municipal drinking water sectors. Biofouling continues to be one of the biggest challenges with operating RO and NF systems on many surface waters and some groundwater. It is typical that these systems experience a higher requirement for chemical cleaning, which frequently results in less than three to five years of membrane life plus higher operating costs.
