As part of our ongoing commitment to customer training, our resident “Dr Chlorine”, Mike Strahand, held four training sessions in March for operators and maintainers at Severn Trent’s Tittesworth Water Treatment Works near Buxton.
The sessions, held over two days, covered some aqueous chlorine chemistry, followed by a session on the preparation and maintenance of the ATi sensors, and concluded with a hands-on session using the three ATi Dual Validated Chlorine Monitors on the plant. If you look closely enough you can see the hypochlorous acid dissociation curve in the background of the first photo.
Paul Williams, Commissioning Engineer for Nomenca, was responsible for the purchase and installation of the monitors at the plant, and found the training invaluable: “The training gave a good review of the theory and operation of the analysers. Everyone who attended was pleasantly surprised at the simplicity of calibration and routine maintenance tasks”.
Niel Brandrick, Severn Trent Water’s Asset Manager of the Staffordshire Water production added:
“Good, practical training is essential if new equipment is to be understood and maintained properly. Only when such training is effectively delivered can equipment such as the ATi membrane analysers realise their potential for accuracy and reliability. Mike Strahand pitched our training just about right”.
Our work with other water companies, such as United Utilities, Yorkshire Water and Thames Water, have demonstrated time and time again the value of training by improving customer knowledge, reducing maintenance costs and increasing the efficiency of the plants.
