Pre-Workshop Training Seminar

Current Topics in Cooling Water Chemistry Control

Tuesday, June 6th, 8:00–11:30 AM

Cooling water treatment continues to evolve with new technologies to better prevent corrosion, scaling, and microbiological fouling in cooling systems, and to protect the environment from discharge of pollutants that can affect our natural water supplies.

The format will be informal, with questions allowed during the presentations.


Registration Fee: $75 on or before May 23, 2023 (After May 23: $100)

Includes all seminar materials and a morning refreshment break


2022 Pre-Workshop Seminar:

The Continued Evolution of Combined Cycle and Co-Generation Chemistry

Presented by Brad Buecker and Steve Shulder

Alternatives to coal-fired power generation continue to grow and expand. For more than two decades, this growth has included combined cycle power production. Also on the rise is distributed power generation, with large industrial plants installing combined cycle or other gas-fired units to produce both process steam and electricity. Net efficiencies of 60 to 80 percent are possible with these power/steam-generating systems. Not only does such high efficiency lower a plant’s bottom line, but it also reduces emissions of carbon dioxide and other potential contaminants. As always though, reliable and safe operation still relies on proper control and monitoring of water/steam chemistry. The 2022 EUCW seminar examines these issues, with a view towards the future.
