Many industrial processes, including the production of pulp, paper, and board products, require large volumes of water. Governments require these facilities to collect and treat their effluent streams in order to protect the environment. The sewer and effluent system is responsible for collecting all of the effluents present on site, which may include process effluent, sanitary effluent, and surface water runoff effluent. This module describes process sewers and effluent collection systems and the purpose of primary, secondary, and tertiary effluent treatments.

At the end of this module, you will be able to:

  • Describe process sewers and effluent collection systems
  • Identify and describe safety hazards and safe work practices associated with sewers
  • Identify and describe key equipment
  • Differentiate between process sewers and sanitary sewers
  • Describe the purpose of primary, secondary, and tertiary effluent treatments
  • List parameters monitored by instrumentation in the sewer and effluent system

The following key questions are answered in this module:

What it purpose of collecting industrial effluent?
Industrial and sanitary effluent needs to be collected so that it can be treated. This is done to protect the environment.

Why are process effluents and sanitary effluents kept separate?
Process and sanitary effluents may be treated differently and have different permitting requirements.

In addition to process and sanitary effluents, what other type of effluent is frequently required to be captured and treated?
In addition to process and sanitary effluents, rain water falling on an industrial facility must be captured and treated.

What gases present in sewers and treatment facilities may be hazardous to your health.
Hazard gases produced

What are some tests that are run to monitor effluent going to and leaving the treatment facility.
Some of the more common effluent tests include pH, temperature, conductivity, suspended solids and BOD.

Below is a transcript of the video sample provided for this module:

Many industrial processes including the production of pulp, paper, and board products require large volumes of water. Governments require these facilities to collect and treat their effluent streams in order to protect the environment. The sewer and effluent system is responsible for collecting all of the effluents present on site which may include process effluent, sanitary effluent, and surface water runoff effluent. Many industrial sites have two or more separate sewer systems to collect different effluents. The most common sewer systems found in pulp and paper mills are sanitary sewers and process sewers. Surface water runoff and potentially hazardous effluents are sometimes collected separately.

Customer Q&A

Ask a Question

Sorry, we're missing some information

How do I log in to watch a video that I have already paid for?

Easy! Moments after you purchase your pay-per-view (PPV) course, you'll receive an email with login details. Just click the link and log in with your user name and password and you're on your way!

I would like to have some of my employees take 5 of your driving related courses, how can i set this up?

We're in the process of making bulk purchases and purchases for multiple users easier. But for now, you can order multiple courses and just let us know who you'd like to assign courses to. With an email for each user, we can set up their training plans and make sure everyone gets the eLearning assignments they need.

How can I get your paper-making courses for free?

Well, we can't blame you for asking... And while we're a for-profit company, there are situations with students and certain educational organizations where we can help out with a selection of eLearning. However, our online courses are extremely economical. And our paper industry courses are in very high demand. So, without knowing more about your situation, we think you'll get loads of value from the $39 you'll spend on any of our premium courses.

Do you have eLearning in Portuguese?

Yes, we do! And in addition to primary English narration, we produce many courses in a growing number of languages, including Spanish, Chinese, Dutch, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Russian, Tamil, and Thai.

I'm unemployed, but I really like your eLearning. Do I get a certificate when I complete a course?

Yes! All of our courses allow you to print a completion certficate upon successfully passing the integrated test at the end of eLearning. In the future, we'll have badges for you to use in your LinkedIn profiles.
