IEN Industry Seminar Series:

Introduction to High-Purity Water Standards - Implications for System Design and Operation

Understanding the different high-purity water quality standards and their implications on water treatment system designs play a critical role in the planning, development and operation of nanotechnology research and other semiconductor-related facilities.  This seminar will provide;

1) An in depth review of the different water quality standards, sampling strategies, techniques and detection limits

2) Explore water treatment system design and operational considerations to obtain the desired water quality including a case study of the Georgia Tech UPW system

3) A review of applications and considerations for small scale point of use laboratory water purification systems

Who Should Attend:

Scientists, researchers, lab technicians, A&E firms, facility managers and engineers who specify, procure, use, operate or maintain high-purity water systems will gain valuable information.  This seminar is intended to educate the audience about the latest state-of-the art analytical, large-scale and small-scale treatment technologies which will help those engaged in all aspects of high-purity water systems from planning to operating and maintaining.

Join Dr. Slava Libman from Air Liquide – BalazsTM Nanoanalysis, Glen Sundstrom and Jeffrey Holland from Evoqua Water Technologies, LLC to explore water quality standards, system designs and small-scale point of use water purification encountered in nanotechnology research facilities.
