Due to the regulatory nature, readings are taken multiple times a day manually, and constant alarms require a technician's attention. Questionable flow data and an ultrasonic level sensor that would not read below 3 GPM did not collect accurate or consistent flow data over the flume. pH buffers and calibrations were up to date, but due to the device's questionable age and occasional data dropout, it did not meet the regulatory requirements.
This application aims to regulate pH and flow and improve wastewater monitoring data collection's accuracy and efficiency, stay in compliance and ensure instrument reliability with a cost-efficient solution, reducing downtime.
The Mettler Toledo M300 with an iSense 3250i pH probe provides the most reliable and accurate pH capabilities in the industry, along with added digital monitoring. Calibrations are done on the bench in a controlled environment. The sensor will tell the transmitter the approximate life of the sensor, reducing system downtime.
The Siemens LU 240 for ultrasonic level (over existing flume) calculates flow and is a very cost-effective way to gather accurate levels. A single device with a local display and a 4-20mA output covers all communication bases and accuracy requirements.
A Red Lion 10” Graphite HMI consolidates data gathering and calculates flow using the existing cellular, returning data to the control room. Data is logged in the HMI via SD Card, so if there is an interruption in the system control room, no data is lost.
PTI's industrial water and wastewater customers’ monitoring challenges are addressed by combining the technology from (3) leading instrument and technology manufacturers.
Siemens, Mettler-Toledo, and Red Lion devices are compatible with providing a cost-effective and accurate automated flow monitoring solution, mitigating the risk involved with regulatory applications.
