5/24/2021 - #8731: Troubleshooting the Sequencing Batch Reactor (Live Online - ZOOM)
This course reviews the biology and chemistry involved in all phases used during an SBR cycle. Phases involved include: 1) static, mix or anoxic and aerated fill phases and single and step fill phases, 2) react phase, 3) settle phased, 4) draw or decant phase and 5) idle phase or period. The goal of each phase, i.e., nitrification, denitrification, biological phosphorus release, biological phosphorus uptake and oxidation of cBOD using dissolved oxygen are discussed. A review of the roles of the bacteria involved in each phase is presented along with the expected changes (biological, chemical and physical) in critical tests that can be used to monitor the success of each phase. Worksheets are provided for operator use to determine if the time of a phase should be adjusted (decreased or increased) in order to make the SBR more efficient in achieving discharge permit requirements.
Zoom information and student guide are included in your order confirmation.
Each operator must be able to log into Zoom individually with a single device for Contact Hours**.
Prior to class, attendees will need their own zoom account which includes their name, phone number and possibly email address.
Attendees can use a computer, phone, or tablet to attend program, however, for the best experience, a device with a web cam and speaker is best.
**Attendees can share a computer for viewing. But, each attendee must also log into a device individually (e.g. View on computer at the plant as a group, but also log into Zoom individually with your phone). Attendees must individually answer periodic poll questions and take quizzes during program. This is necessary to verify attendance and participation. This will involve typing into a device.
