Pulsar Process Measurement Ltd have been awarded a five-year exclusive framework contract to supply Wessex Water with Sludge Finder 2 Sludge Interface measurement equipment.
Sludge Finder 2 uses an acoustic sonar technology to measure crucial sludge interface levels, drawing on Pulsar's knowledge of echo processing and analysis to identify the changes in density that represent the sludge interfaces. Pulsar's Viper transducer is a self-cleaning, maintenance-free unit that sits below the sludge surface emitting sonar pulses that are then analysed in the Sludge Finder 2 controller.
Sludge Finder 2 has recently added the ability to measure two interface points using the same transducer, so that a single unit can monitor, measure and report both FLOC and RAS levels.
Wessex Water selected Sludge Finder 2 following a comprehensive tender exercise, which evaluated both technical performance and total cost of ownership.
