CHLOR RID International, Inc. is the world leader in soluble salt information, measuring devices, and decontamination products for surface preparation. A major cause of premature coating failures are remaining surface salts which are not detected or treated prior to coating application. The CHLOR*TEST ‘CSN’ kit accurately and easily detects the presence of residual chloride, sulfate, and nitrate salts on the surface which are prevalent in the water and wastewater processing industry. CHLOR*RID liquid soluble salt remover is recognized as the most effective, easiest, and economical tool for removing surface salts to meet stringent job specifications.

This webinar provides performance requirements for coatings and linings used on sound concrete substrates in principal service environments of areas of a municipal wastewater treatment facility, including:
• Collection Systems (manholes, lift stations, pump stations, tunnels and interceptors)
• Preliminary Treatment Systems (grit chambers, headworks and screening structures)
• Primary Treatment Systems (sedimentation tanks and primary clarifiers)
• Secondary Treatment Systems (aeration basins, secondary clarifiers, chlorine contact chambers and oxygenation chambers)
• Advanced Treatment Systems (filtration units)
• Solids Handling Areas (digesters and dewatering structures)
• Chemical Storage (secondary containment structures)
Participants will be eligible to receive credit from SSPC.
