Virtually all industries utilize water in their manufacturing process, either as a heat-transfer medium, as in the steam-electric generating industry or in the employment of cooling towers; or as a product as in the case of beverages, foods and pharmaceutical preparations. Water is also employed as a working solvent, as in the case of manufacturing microelectronics, where the final product yield is highly dependent on the purity of the water. In addition, all manufacturing processes that employ water in their process, must also deal with a waste stream. Water treatment is of almost universal importance, yet, most engineers and chemists responsible for the water treatment facility have not had academic training in industrial water treatment. This book presents an elementary overview of the water treatment process, from "why" to "how." This book is designed for the person who is juct entering this field and needs an overview of the basic principles. For industry veterans, this is an excellent book to give to a new person entering their department.
