Sludge Level Metering – Reliable sludge blanket measurement via an optical sensor

You can achieve an accurate and reliable profile measurement of your sedimentation tank using an optical sensor which travels through all layers of the tank reading suspended solids concentration at the different heights. This gives you more information than you can ever obtain with any comparable device based on an other technologies, which hence generates better knowledge about your sedimentation process.
