Flowmeters Monitor Waste Water

The Wells Sanitary District waste water treatment facility has installed four Optiflux electromagnetic flowmeters to monitor the flow of sludge at the treatment plant. The newly refurbished plant on the southern coast of Maine, USA treats up to 7.5 million litres of waste water per day. Engineering consultants redesigned many of the systems and processes at the facility and replaced all the existing electromagnetic flowmeters with Krohne's Optiflux instruments. The Optiflux incorporates advanced measurement technology, which is highly accurate even when measuring substances with a high bubble or solid content or where there is turbulent flow. The flowmeters installed at Wells Sanitary District are being used to measure sludge recirculation and monitor the amount of effluent that is treated. In the sludge recirculation area, which forms part of the of the facility's in-line waste activated sludge process, two Optiflux flowmeters are being used to measure the throughput of sl
