Webinar Outline

Stainless steel is widely used in water supply, processing and hygienic environments. This webinar will provide examples spanning from raw supply through processing and usage sectors, while also delving into the significance of stainless steel in repurposing or returning water to the environment.

Specific topics included:

  • Examples of stainless steel applications from raw to waste streams, including hygienic and medical applications
  • Why stainless steel is preferred over other materials and identifying which alloys are most popular
  • Impacts of factors such as of roughness, velocity and water composition on stainless steel selection, along with processing required to minimise their effects
  • Classification of waters by specific measured properties (often resistivity or electrical conductivity)
  • Water purification methods, including flocculation, settlement, membrane purification via reverse osmosis, and the role of pre-treatment
  • Utilising heat, cold, radiation, and biological control for water treatment, while considering factors like pH and halogen effectiveness
  • Managing oxidants in plant systems, pipes, and above waterlines
  • Understanding rouge formation, prevention and removal techniques
  • Assessing predominant alloys used and the role of polymeric and FRP materials in specific applications.
