U.S. Water Services highlighted the S.sensing CS wastewater monitoring system from Kurita at WEFTEC in Chicago. The technology offers innovative equipment to control product dosage in industrial wastewater treatment systems.

The monitoring system uses a laser-based technology and provides in-situ measurement of turbidity between the flocs. This enables the system to control product dosage at the inlet of the sedimentation basin.

Industrial wastewater treatment systems typically control dosage according to a turbidity measurement at the sedimentation basin outlet. This results in a time delay of dosage control.

S.sensing CS technology eliminates this drawback by measuring the clear-water phase between the flocs.

This makes it possible to adjust dosages according to the inlet water quality. Too-high and too-low dosages are therefore avoided. Pumps are immediately adjusted to match the load of the inlet water. The result is a smooth process with stable water quality at an optimum product dosage and a reduction in sludge formation and its attendant costs. Visit www.uswaterservices.com.
