Demineralized water preparation

The course aims to provide participants with a knowledge base on technologies for the preparation of demineralized water, resins or membranes. In addition to the theoretical basis, the content is greatly enriched by the field experience of our experts in industrial and power plants.

Characteristics of raw water.

Raw water pre-treatment plant, incl. overview of the technologies used on-site, characteristics, attention points, follow-up and monitoring aspects.

Review of the water treatment plant.

Demineralization by ion exchange (resins).

    • Design.
    • Structure of the resin and comparison of characteristics (stability, capacity, …).
    • The functioning of the ion exchange.
    • Processes of demineralization and regeneration.
    • Monitoring aspects.
    • Effluents (characteristics, quantities, permissions, attention points).

Demineralization by membrane technologies.

    • Design.
    • Calculation of scaling potential.
    • Optimization of chemicals injection.
    • Monitoring -biocide control.
    • Chemical cleaning procedure.
    • Start-up and shut-down procedures.
    • Preservation of membrane installation.

Exercises and quiz.

Chemists and laboratory managers.

A chemical engineer who has worked at ENGIE Laborelec for 10 years, Han Huynh is a specialist in water treatment (cooling water, demineralised water desalination, and the water-steam cycle) and CO2 capture and valorization. In the area of technical assistance, she has undertaken activities such as plant commissioning and chemistry reviews and audits, as well as a number of troubleshooting missions. Adopting a pragmatic approach, she discusses all recommendations with her clients taking into account their needs and the constraints under which they operate.
She also manages technical projects in the framework of research programs on carbon reduction and valorisation, and water footprint and management, as well as the European Union’s MATChING project (part of the Horizon 2020 program) which focuses on cooling water system improvement. She is the coordinator for the CO2 Lab within Engie.
