  • Outside mounting of components
  • Not exposed to the harsh process conditions
  • Free of wear and maintenance
  • Smooth handling and operation
  • Lowest cost of ownership
  • Easy to install on existing vessels and pipe systems without modifications

Determination of solid matter in sewage sludge

Measuring digested sludge in a drainage plant

Measuring digested sludge in a drainage plant

To enable a 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, respectively the concentrated flocculating agents depends on the solid matter content of the sewage sludge.
Berthold have developed a measuring system for this purpose, with which the solid matter 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 then determines the dosage of the flocculating agent and allows to feed the centrifuge with a constant solid matter load.
