This presentation summarizes startup testing methodology used on six membrane filtration municipal water plant startups and will be soon used on startup of the second municipal ceramic membrane plant installation in the U.S. This method provides a testing and checkout process that contrasts to the typical I/O checkout and performance demonstration. The philosophy used is that the question to ask is not what will happen if a piece of equipment fails, but what will happen when it fails. The plant results are then compared to the owner’s expectations for desired results.
This presentation is available to AMTA Members only.
