Valmet Total Solids Measurement - Valmet TS

Valmet Total Solids Measurement - sludge solids sensor

Valmet Total Solids Measurement (Valmet TS), based on microwave technology, is a reliable and accurate meter for all wastewater sludge treatment applications (0 – 40% total solids), providing savings in energy, polymer dosing, and transportation.

Valmet Total Solids Measurement 

Features

Digester feed: Maintaining a high, optimized total solids content in the sludge entering the digesters helps to achieve better process control and significant savings. This will also decrease electricity costs, and a higher intake digester capacity means that new investments can be postponed.

Dewatering: Valmet Total Solids Measurement (Valmet TS) helps in optimizing polymer dosages and thus reducing polymer costs. The quality of both the dewatered sludge and centrate water is stabilized. Better dewatering efficiency in turn reduces sludge transport costs and improves incineration efficiency if the sludge is eventually burned. Dewatering equipment can be run for shorter times, which lessens energy consumption and maintenance costs.

Benefits

  • Maintenance free measurement
  • Fewer laboratory analyses
  • Single point calibration
  • Long experience and know-how in microwave technology

Energy savings and lower polymer costs in sludge treatment are among the benefits gained with Valmet Total Solids Measurement (Valmet TS) at Kajaanin Vesi in Finland. In 2012–2013, the plant modernized its sludge treatment facility and had four Valmet TS units installed in the process. This reliable total solids measurement solution, based on microwave technology, is suitable for all wastewater sludge treatment applications in the range of 0–40% total solids.

Valmet goes underground to help treat wastewater

Valmet goes underground to help treat wastewater

The Kakolanmäki waste water treatment plant, jointly owned by 14 municipalities, has been operating in the southern Finnish city of Turku since the beginning of 2009. Since the plant is built underground it has a more constant and higher temperature than surface facilities, a distinct advantage for treatment conditions. It is able to process the wastewater from 300,000 people and various industrial sources in a way that considerably reduces the nutrient load on the Baltic Sea.

In the Beijing Gaobeidian Wastewater Treatment Plant, sludge total solids from the primary clarifier varied from below 1 to 60 g/l, which means that from time to time only water is pumped to the sludge thickening tank. The Valmet TS total solids transmitter was installed in the outlet of the primary clarifier to control pumping.
