Description of the Microbiological and Corrosion Control in Cooling Systems course
The Microbiological and Corrosion Control in Cooling Systems online 2 PDH course is a part of the Mechanical Engineering category of courses. This course discusses microbiological and corrosion control in cooling water systems. Microbiological organisms are composed of three classes: algae, bacteria, and fungus. Large biological organisms such as clams, snails, mussels, or similar species are referred to as macrobiological organisms. The presence of any biological growth can be detrimental to cooling tower operations. Problems include fouling, corrosion, and loss of efficiency. These problems can lead to downtime, higher operating cost, and even premature replacement of equipment. Additionally, some bacteria are pathogenic and can pose a risk to human life.
This course will give environmental and civil engineers and other design and construction professionals an introduction to the design, construction and process control considerations for microbiological and corrosion control in cooling water systems.
This course is intended for civil, environmental and sanitary engineers and other design and construction professionals wanting an introduction to microbiological and corrosion control in cooling water systems.
At the end of this PDH online continuing education course, you will:
- Learn about microbiological deposits and control;
- Learn about planktonic bacteria;
- Learn how to control sessile bacteria;
- Learn about microbiological control methods;
- Learn how oxidizing biocides destroy nutrients that the microorganisms require for growth.;
- Learn how chlorine compounds are the most effective industrial oxidizing biocides and the most widely used.; and
- Learn how bromine compounds are very similar to chlorine compounds.
