The Practical Principles of Ion Exchange Water Treatment develops the fundamentals of understanding the ion exchange water treatment process for those people who work with or are concerned with the operation of systems employing this technology. Included are the basics of the mechanics and equipment of ionexchange water treatment, and the effect of these on the operation of the systems. Operation cycles of backwash, chemical regeneration, and rinses are detailed with explanations of each step. The in-depth explanations of what, how, and why of this water treatment technology should provide the reader of this text with a basis for improving the operation and performance of installed systems. Troubleshooting and problem solving is approached in a new manner by outlining problem sources, with cross-references to basic explanations of the causes and suggestions as to where to look for solutions. With very few established courses on this subject in schools or in industry, this volume has served as a useful basic training text on ion exchange. Over 3,400 copies of the first edition were sold. The second edition contains an updated troubleshooting section, as well as sections on waste treatment and resin sampling and testing.
