About the Book
Virtually all industries utilize water in their manufacturing process, either as a heat-transfer medium, as in the steam-electric generating industry or in the employment of cooling towers; or as a product as in the case of beverages, foods and pharmaceutical preparations. Water is also employed as a working solvent, as in the case of manufacturing microelectronics, where the final product yield is highly dependent on the purity of the water. In addition, all manufacturing processes that employ water in their process, must also deal with a waste stream. Water treatment is of almost universal importance, yet, most engineers and chemists responsible for the water treatment facility have not had academic training in industrial water treatment.
This book presents an elementary overview of the water treatment process, from "why" to "how." This book is designed for the person who is juct entering this field and needs an overview of the basic principles. For industry veterans, this is an excellent book to give to a new person entering their department.

About the Author
The late Cliff D. Morelli worked in all aspects of industrial water treatment for more than 50 years. He received his B.S. in chemical engineering degree from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 1939. From 1940 to 1975, he held many positions at Infilco Degremont Inc., Richmond Va. After retirement from Infilco in 1975, he continued as a consultant to the beverage industry until 1993. During his career in water treatment, he has been a member of the AWWA, ACS, AIChE, and various water and waste treatment organizations in New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania.
