TurbiTechw² Suspended Solids & Turbidity Sensor - DESCRIPTION

TurbiTechw² Suspended Solids & Turbidity Sensor - DESCRIPTION
by In-Situ

The TurbiTechw² Sensors are designed for use in aeration systems to monitor suspended solids, also known as mixed liquor suspended solids or activated sludge, where solids are typically in the range of 1,500 to 14,000 mg/l. These sensors also measure Returned Activated Sludge (RAS), Surplus Activated Sludge (SAS), and suspended solids or turbidity. High MLSS concentrations promote numerous process benefits, including stable operation, complete nitrification, and reduced biosolids production, reducing biological volume requirements (and associated footprint) to only 20-30 percent of conventional biological processes.

The sizable optical surface and sample volume combine to ensure that the  provided information is reliable and representative of the solids present in the process. Deposits of fats and grease in the sensing area do not prevent accurate measurement, unlike sensors with small optical surfaces. In addition, the sensor incorporates a self-cleaning mechanism, ensuring that the optical surfaces are kept clean at all times. The cleaning system is designed to avoid problems with ragging and does not smear the optical sensing system.
