Purpose of Seminar:

Plans and specifications for installing HVAC systems in buildings are prepared with a great deal of time and expense. Many times, however, some items are left to chance, with little or no thought given to system maintenance once the project is completed. Water treatment of the HVAC/R waterside often falls into this category.

Precise planning on the part of the design professional can prevent serious start-up and operational problems, and ensure system longevity, when a proper water treatment program is specified and provided. Unfortunately, that forethought isn’t always done, and even if it is, that plan and information isn’t always carried on down to the people actually maintaining the HVAC/R systems, especially if they are years down the road from design.

This course will bring people responsible for water treatment in their facilities up to speed regardless of their current situation, whether they are specifying a new system, or trying to keep an old system alive for as long as possible.

When students leave this course they will have a firm understanding of what it takes to get their water treatment program into shape and keep it there.
