Valmet has delivered six Valmet Total Solids measurements to a state-of-the-art sludge treatment plant in Hong Kong. At the moment the plant is being commissioned, with two of the four incinerators already started.
|Customer challenge||The Environmental Protection Department (EPD) of the Hong Kong Government has embarked on a major project to construct a large-scale centralized sludge treatment plant.|
|Solution||Valmet Total Solids Measurements are commonly used in sludge treatment processes. These meters measure the total solids content of the sludge in applications where a fast and accurate measurement is needed for control purposes.|
|Results||In Hong Kong the total solids meters are installed to the incinerator feed lines to help optimize the incinerator process. Based on the accurate total solids reading the incinerator operators are able to optimize the consumption of fuel/gas and air and thus ensure maximum burning efficiency while still saving in fuel/gas costs.|
