It Starts with pH: Everything Else is Downstream

Wastewater neutralization is a fundamental process in wastewater engineering. At first glance, this seems rather simple. However, we often see pH control systems not functioning properly. This negatively impacts other processes downstream, particularly biological processes that must see a steady, neutral pH with residual alkalinity to support vital processes such as nitrification. Out of specification pH also leads to noncompliance, risks damage to facility infrastructure or public utility infrastructure that receives the effluent, and presents possible safety hazards.

In this hour-long recorded presentation, Susan Ambler, PE, Project Manager, and Edward Helmig, Senior Technical Manager, share how to tackle the challenge of pH neutralization to ensure stable and effective downstream wastewater treatment process. This starts with a clear analysis of influent characteristics, titration curves, reactors, mixing, and instrumentation and control requirements. Presenters will break down the process into five key parameters for successful treatment, providing examples of how this was successfully applied at different industrial wastewater treatment facilities. While industrial examples will be the focus of this hour-long webinar, the knowledge can be applied to municipal facilities as well.
