2020 - Fund. of Solids Handling

EGLE CECs:  0.5 WW Technical
Course Code: 2426

All facilities are required to remove solids from their influent. There is a broad spectrum of approaches and methods for handling solids.

There is a difficult issue related to solids handling for individuals taking EGLE Operator Certification Exams. Questions related to this topic are included on the exams.

Because of the dynamic of this topic, this course will serve as an invaluable part of review and preparation for all levels of EGLE Operator Certification exams.

Topics Covered:
    Primary and Secondary Solids

    Sludge Digestion
    Dewatering
    Mechanical Dewatering
    Sludge disposal
