Periodic Water Table With James McDonald # 51
Why and how is cobalt used in industry water treatment? What products do you use with cobalt in them? Can cobalt ever precipitate out of solution and cause problems? Under what conditions can this happen? Can cobalt in a product become a foulant or degradation catalyst for an RO membrane if used?
Periodic Water Table With James McDonald # 52
With everything happening during Industrial Water Week on the podcast, we didn’t have room for that week’s edition, but don’t worry, because the 52nd and last Periodic Water Table with James topic is none other than…
Water or H2O or dihydrogen monoxide or even oxidane, the IUPAC-compliant name for water. There are many names for water. It has inspired art, poetry, music, architecture, comics, inventions, love, and more. It has helped both create and destroy civilizations. It is at the very heart of what you and I do every day as we practice the noble profession of industrial water treatment. It is water. How much do you know about water though? Why is water a liquid at room temperature when other molecules of similar or even heavier molecular weights are gasses? How does its density change with temperature? How conductive is pure water? Is water a stable molecule or does it ever disassociate? Have you taken out a steam table lately and looked at the trends as pressures and temperatures change? Take this opportunity to dig in and learn more about water…drop by drop.
