The measurement of solids in wastewater treatment has always been a questionable proposition. Limitations in measurement accuracy along with long term reliability have been a concern to plant operators and engineers.
Additionally, harsh and sometimes uncontrolled process conditions (e.g. fat, oil, and grease) offer additional challenges. Despite these challenges, dependable and accurate measurements are still being sought today in wastewater treatment.
Why? The reward for having reliable solids measurements is great – instant and continuous solids measurement allows plant operations to optimize, automate, and improve their processes. This reduces plant operation costs through chemical and energy savings while improving even further the environmental and public health benefits of wastewater treatment.
