Course detail

Laboratory Classes in Drinking Water Treatment Technology I

FCH-MCO_TEV1_PAcad. year: 2017/2018

Selected water treatment technological tests (determination of optimum dose of coagulant for treatment of surface water by classic and modificated centrifugation tests, adsorption by powdered and granulated active carbon, iron and manganese removinig for treatment of groundwater, hydraulic characteristics of flow reactors- including required analytical methods and results evaluation), in form of six separate excercises designed for all-day (8 hours) work of pair of students.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students will acquire new skills, knowledge and experience in these areas and increase the competence of students as follows:

1st Students will gain an overview of selected experimental methods used in water treatment technology.
2nd Students will be able to perform selected technological tests used in water treatment technology.
3rd Students will be able to use physico-chemical, chemical and physical methods analysis of materials tested in gone over technological tests.
4th Students will know instrumental technique used in gone over technological tests.
5th Students will know the methodology and evaluation of selected technological tests inclusive of experimental data treatment by methods of mathemtical analysis and mathematical statistics.
6th Students will gain a capability of autonomous labor in application of selected technological tests from field of water treatment, inclusive of necessary chemical analysis and their evaluation and a capability of autonomous work in the MS Excel environment during processing of experimental results by utilization of tools of mathematical analysis and mathematical statistics.
