Removal of waste matter from water form a key process within industrial wastewater environments and treatment plants.
Monitoring of the suspended solids within the water is often part of legal consent requirements to ensure the concentration of solids being discharged are within regulatory thresholds. Excessive levels of suspended solids within the wastewater can make it difficult to treat effectively and reduce the ability to separate solids from water. It is therefore often necessary to measure the levels of suspended solids within wastewater using Suspended Solids Monitors or by taking samples for off-site laboratory analysis.
Our self-cleaning suspended solids sensor is the TurbiTechw² LA Sensor, which is specifically designed for aeration systems monitoring of suspended solids.
It gives reliable and accurate solids measurement through its large, optical surface and sample volume. It can measure suspended solids or activated sludge in the range of 1,500 – 3,500 mg/l and benefits from a self-cleaning function that ensures optimum ongoing performance. It is also capable of measuring RAS (Returned Activated Sludge), SAS (Surplus Activated Sludge) and suspended solids or turbidity.
Self Cleaning Sensor for Suspended Solids and Turbidity Monitoring
We also offer the TurbiTechw² HR Sensor, which is designed specifically for solids monitoring in higher ranges. It uses infrared light at 860 nm, utilising the Light Attenuation Principle in its operations. Its shorter path length allows measurement of solids in wastewater treatment systems with particularly high levels of suspended solids during the aeration phase – typically between 8,000 – 14,000 mg/l.
This model also offers a 90-second self-cleaning cycle for optimum ongoing performance and reduced maintenance time. Again, a large optical surface and sample volume enable high levels of measurement accuracy and reliability. Conversely to sensors with smaller optical surfaces, the sensor is not affected by fat or grease deposits.
In many instances it may be more cost-effective to use your wastewater sampler to take samples for laboratory monitoring, rather than installing a suspended solids monitor. We offer a range of samplers that can be used for this purpose.
