Polymer 101: Fundamentals of Flocculation

Presented by the Residuals and Biosolids Committee of the Water Environment Federation

June 25, 2020, 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM Eastern

This webinar will start with a presentation by UGSI Solutions’ esteemed polymer expert Dr. Yong Kim that will focus on the basics of what polymer is, why it is needed, and how best to create an effective polymer solution. Dr. George Tichenor’s presentation will include video presentations that show demonstrations of proper sludge/polymer (dry and emulsion) mixing, beaker-to-beaker pour tests to provide visual examples of polymer effectiveness and good floc structure, and the use of Gravity Drainage and (high-shear) Chopper Tests to determine optimum polymer dosage. Sludge from both a biological phosphorous removal (BPR) facility as well as a non-BPR facility will be used to illustrate differences in polymer demand. Next, David Oerke will present a summary of a full-scale side-by-side case study for polymer-specific optimization through implementation of state-of-the-practice technology at the F. Wayne Hill Facility operated by the Gwinnett County Department of Water Resources, Georgia.

This webcast is being offered at a special, one-time rate of $20 to non-WEF members

There will be 1.5 Professional Development Hours (PDHs) offered for this webcast. Please check with your state accreditation agency to determine if you qualify. The PDH instructions will be sent to all attendees 24 hours after the webcast has ended.
