This course covers basic idea related to ion exchange process, resin types and their applications (without getting involved with the resin structure), experimental methods of resin selections, regeneration methods and their effect on overall efficiency of the system, basic calculation for designing an industrial water treatment unit and more.

Learning Objectives:

  • Fundamental basis for ion exchange process.
  • Resin selection method and effect of water matrix on the ion exchange process.
  • Basic calculation for the volume of required resin and reagent in ion exchange units, and
  • How an ion exchange unit could fit into the mining process.
