There are growing challenges in conventional water and wastewater treatment process due to the present of new contaminants, growing complexity of industrial activities, the rapid growth of population, and compliance with standards and regulations. Those challenges have driven the whole industry to optimize the present treatment process and search for new technologies. Those changes require operators to not only master the routine operations but also understand the technical issues and troubleshoot the problems.
This presentation describes the designing and construction of a customized water and wastewater process lab at SAIT, which will be used for the training of water and wastewater treatment operators. This process lab will enable operators to operate lab-scale conventional water and wastewater treatment units, as well as emerging techniques, such as membrane filtration. All the lab equipment is equipped with DeltaV, which enables operators to interact with the treatment units using an industrial control system. The treatment units are designed as “plug and play” products. This allows operators to reconnect various units into different treatment process and acquire experience in the real behavior of the system. Hence, this process lab will enhance operators learning experience with hands-on operation. It also provides an option for them to identify problems, research solutions, and present their findings.
