Makeup Water for Industrial Water Systems

The Makeup Water for Industrial Water Systems online PDH course is a part of the Mechanical Engineering category of courses. This course discusses makeup water for industrial water systems. Industrial water systems usually use fresh water and, often, potable water. Makeup water, often referred to as “makeup,” is fresh water that is added to an industrial water system to replace water lost by blowdown, evaporation, wind drift, leaks, steam, humidification, or withdrawal from these systems. The usual source of makeup water is the potable water supply. This source is water that has been conditioned and is usually of a very uniform quality from day to day. Other sources of makeup water could include groundwater obtained from shallow or deep wells, or surface water from streams or holding ponds. These sources are not treated to the extent that the potable water source is treated. Still another source is reuse water (i.e., water that is “used” and reclaimed and not rated as potable).

This course is intended for mechanical, civil and environmental engineers and other design and construction professionals wanting an introduction to industrial makeup water sources and treatment.
