CHEMTRACK Water Technology Services introduces a new suspended solids density meter featuring a non-radioactive ultrasonic sensor to measure and monitor sludge concentrations.
These sensors use non-radioactive ultrasound to measure and monitor the density of mix tank inflow, process slurries, silt in raw water, and backwash/wastewater sludge in tanks, pipes, re-circulation loops and clarifiers, automating sludge removal.
The suspended solids density meter assists operators with adjusting fluid, particulate or chemical amounts for preferred concentrations, allowing them to program underflow pumps to automatically shut off before bio-solids become too thin. Operators can also use the meter to determine polymer dosages for improved filter press/centrifuge/digester performance. Changes in density will alert the operator to breaks in filtration material.
The suspended solids density meter featuring the non-intrusive sensor is simple to install, calibrate and clean.
