  • The Sludge Gun®: Target Your Sludge!

    This Portable Sludge Blanket Level Detector measures solid-liquid interface levels in clarifiers, tanks and lagoons, and helps provide valuable silt and sludge level profiles. It allows users to monitor sludge bed depth for regulatory compliance and prevention of carryover, and to eliminate unnecessary pumping/dredging. Using high-intensity infrared light, it detects sludge densities ranging ...

  • Hach releases low-maintenance sludge blanket for level monitoring

    Hach’s SONATAX sc optimizes sludge extraction, manages recirculation, and warns of potential solids washouts that may result in costly permit violations. The SONATAX sc probe stays clean by using a magnetic coupled wiper that wipes the face of the probe. The wiper functions with a magnetic connection and without a shaft so there are no o-rings to replace and no need to open the probe housing. ...

  • Anaerobic granular sludge available

    In several industrial sectors anaerobic wastewater treatment is commonly applied. The granular sludge plays a vital role within this technology. In this way waste water containing high levels of organics (COD) is purified effectively. Anaerobic methanogenic biomass present in the reactor transforms the organic matter into biogas. The anaerobic reactors are designed to stimulate the formation of ...

  • Sludge cleans waste water in Singapore

    Clean water is in short supply in Singapore and therefore innovative thinking is necessary, as the city-state ensures its access to the scarce resource. Grundfos has received a good 1.2 million euro to sophisticate a brand new technology in which the waste water is treated through sludge. The cleansed water can help ease the strain on the water resources in the area. At the beginning of next ...

  • Wastewater treatment lowers pathogen levels

    A recent study by a team of researchers at the University of Arizona has tracked the incident of pathogens in biosolids over a 19 year period in one major U.S. city. In the same study, the researchers also analyzed pathogen levels in biosolids at 18 wastewater treatment plants in the United States. Their analysis indicates pathogens levels have dropped since the implementation of federal ...
