AMETEK Drexelbrookarifier Control System, that provides continuous measurement of sludge blanket level and effluent clarity, has just been released by <%=company%>. The CCS2000
system employs advanced sonic technology to measure the sludge blanket level and water clarity in water or wastewater treatment facilities. The clarity measurement provides an early warning of when the effluent quality begins to deteriorate. If left unchecked, this can lead to "washout" conditions which may result in noncompliance and fines. The clarity measurement allows the user to take timely corrective action before washouts occur.
The sludge blanket measurement is important because, if the blanket becomes too thick, mechanical breakdowns and /or denitrification can occur. On the other hand, if the blanket is too thin, that can result in inefficient process operation and increased disposal costs. Reliable blanket level information can also provide an early warning of a biological upset condition that can cause prolonged operational problems.
The system includes a transducer, a transceiver, and a controller device. The system generates two, 4-20 ma analog outputs: one for the sludge blanket level, and one for percent clarity. There is also a display of the two process variables, as well as various alarm and control relays. In addition, the CCS2000 system is factory pre-configured for immediate start up.
