Pulsar have installed thousands of sludge measurement systems worldwide, here a just a few of the applications to demonstrate the benefits of effective sludge blanket level measurement and Pulsar's Sludge Finder 2.
Exceptional Reliability - Customer Confidence in Complex Application
Customer: Dwr Cymru Welsh Water, Wales, UK
Process: Sludge Finder 2's exceptional reliability within previous installations gave customers the confidence that it could work successfully in a complex application with sludges from different processes that gave variable composition going into thickeners. Read the full case study.
Automation and Control - Replacing Unreliable Manual Techniques and Environmental Compliance
Customer: Wessex Water, England, UK
Process: Sludge Finder 2 replaced outmoded dipping probes which were unreliable and led to readings often including 'spikes' or 'flatlines' that would activate the RAS valves unnecessarily - using excess energy and making it more difficult to control the sludge blanket. The Sludge Finder 2 installation meant more accurate control of the process and made it easier for the company to comply with environmental consents. Read the full case study.
Energy Efficiency - Using Sludge Measurement to Power A Whole Wastewater Treatment Plant
Customer: Severn Trent Water, England, UK
Process: Sludge Finder 2 is used to increase sludge density transferred to digesters from an average of 2% up to 6% - resulting in energy generation of 5.5MW (5500KW) at full power. The site now powers all equipment on site and returns surplus energy to the grid. Read the full case study.
