A successful industrial water treatment program is a combination of the right chemicals and technology with a knowledgeable customer. The Garratt-Callahan (G-C) team can empower our partners with water treatment training and courses to help nurture a better understanding of how water functions in their systems, as well as, the science behind why our approach to industrial water treatment works. When an operator knows the what, the why, and the how behind their system’s water treatment, their programs tend to succeed at the highest levels.
To that end, G-C offers a range of comprehensive onsite training and virtual training that does a deep dive into the treatment of water treatment systems as well as basic water treatment chemistry. With a combination of hands-on training and seminars, your G-C training representative can educate your personnel on different topics including essential best practices of your water treatment equipment and technology, how the system functions, procedures, best practices, control testing, and handling the chemicals safely.
Why Understand the Science Behind Industrial Water Treatment?
Industrial water treatment chemicals and equipment have advanced over the past few decades and and a shift toward water conservation and environmentally friendly options is growing. The technology G-C uses is advanced and precise, adhering strictly to, and going beyond, EPA water treatment standards. Because technology has advanced, it is critical for equipment operators to have a strong working knowledge of the operational efficiency measures, equipment maintenance procedures, and health and safety techniques surrounding industrial water treatment. G-C has, therefore, created a comprehensive water treatment training program with wide-ranging training materials and courses that help operators, whatever their skill level, gain a deep understanding of the essentials of the process.
Water Treatment Training Starts Here
Our Water Treatment training sessions can explain everything from how to service your system, to the safe handling of chemicals, and what to look for while operating and maintaining your equipment. Onsite training is an excellent complement to your internal and equipment-specific training. Some of the most requested water treatment training topics include:
- Actionable steps—We can train on day-to-day procedures that can help ensure the equipment provides reliable water treatment for a long time.
- Proper application and dosage of chemicals— safe handling and proper dosing are critical, and we will explain it all.
- Troubleshooting—If anything unexpected happens, you will know the safe, correct steps to troubleshoot and who to call to receive assistance quickly.
- Avoiding mismanagement—Having properly trained system operators that follow the correct procedures can help prevent human error and mismanagement.
- Preventing legionella outbreaks and other contaminants—one of the keystones of any water treatment program is to ensure the health and safety of the people who use the water on the other end.
Ongoing training can help your organization maintain legal and regulatory compliance. Knowing the best practices in operating, maintaining, and troubleshooting the equipment may extend its lifetime, which improves your return on investment for that equipment.
An important aspect of enacting a water treatment program, and receiving the necessary training for it, is keeping people safe and healthy. Safe, clean water improves and protects lives.
