Using a near-infrared wave length (880 nanometers) virtually eliminates shifts in calibration caused by color variations in the process being measured. As almost all processes will have slight changes in color, using near-infrared reduces calibration events and provides better accuracy. BACK TO TOP
1. Balance the solids loading in the mixed liquor as flow changes during the day.
2. Reduce the time required to take manual grab samples.
3. Accurately control wasting, thereby maintaining an optimum sludge age. BACK TO TOP
There are two different sensors that cover a range of 0 to 30,000 mg/l. The model 15L was designed to measure low ranges (0 to 1500 mg/l) typically found in plant and clarifier effluents. The model 15 was designed to measure higher solids concentrations (400 to 30,000 mg/l) typically found in mixed liquor, RAS, and WAS. BACK TO TOP
No. The mg/l method is a volumetric measure of the actual weight of solids in the sample. The NTU method is a measurement of the clarity of the water. There is no exact correlation between the two methods. BACK TO TOP
All sensors are delivered with a ¼ inch quick-disconnect that allows an air or water line to be attached. The analyzer will either open / close a solenoid valve or turn on / off an air compressor at user defined intervals. The solenoid valve is used in applications that already have compressed air or wash water available. The stand-alone compressor can be mounted on the handrail right next to the analyzer. BACK TO TOP
