  • Easy to install on existing vessels and pipe systems without modifications

Solids in sewage sludge

Measuring digested sludge in a drainage plant

Measuring digested sludge in a drainage plant

To enable the separation of water and solids, a flocculating agent is mixed into the thickened sludge during the sludge de-watering. The polymers used for this process are very expensive and therefore have to be used sparingly. The dosage of the polymers depends on the solid matter content of the sewage sludge.
Berthold has developed a measuring system for this purpose, with which the solid content can be determined exactly and reliably. The thickened sludge is de-watered by means of high power centrifuge. Before adding the flocculating agent, the solid matter content is determined using the latest microwave technology, which is then used to determine flocculating agent dosage and makes it possible to maintain solid load feed into the centrifuge.
