Lab Water Design - An In-Depth Case Study and Review - 522

For experienced engineers as well as those just entering the field, lab plumbing and system design can be intimidating. The systems and plumbing technologies utilized vary depending on the type of laboratory and different process variables that come into play. This presentation will show plumbing engineers and designers the step-by-step process for doing lab plumbing and system design. This will include what types of questions to ask, a review of different process variables, and a discussion of the types of water systems/plumbing involved in lab design. This will be done in the backdrop of a recently completed case study to show the audience how these various technologies work together to a finished project. 

The discussion will be broken down between high-purity piping and system design. This will include water quality selection and applicability, piping design and connections, point-of-use systems and where they are applicable, as well as a discussion of central systems. Many of the frequently asked questions such as determining water quality, loop design, pitfalls to avoid, and when to utilize different high-purity water systems will be explored.

The discussion will then shift to the waste side, understanding and categorizing waste streams whether they be chemicals, biological, or solvent wastes. Proper system design such as pH adjustment, effluent decontamination (also referred to as bio-kill), and solvent collection will be discussed. Waste conveyance technology will also be reviewed, and system and pipe sizing as well as monitoring will be discussed.


Learning Objectives:

  1. Properly perform high purity loop design, calculations, and understand different loop materials and joining technologies. 15 minutes 
  2. Design a central system and strategically utilize point of system based on the water quality requirements of induvial labs.  15 mintues
