LIQUID INSTRUMENTATION IN MUNICIPAL WASTEWATER TREATMENT


BACKGROUND
Municipal wastewater treatment employs a number of processes designed to clarify, disinfect, and condition raw sewage so that it may be safely released into rivers and other bodies of water. These processes involve both chemical addition and biological action. Chemical concentration control, as well as sample monitoring, are necessary for efficient operation, to avoid upsets, and to protect certain aspects of the overall process. Figure 1 shows the primary wastewater application.

PROCESSES
Influent: pH and other analyzers are used to detect the presence of off-spec industrial waste and provide warning to avoid major upsets. For additional details, refer to ADS 4950-12. Aeration/activated Sludge Process: Dissolved oxygen measurement is used to maintain an adequate oxygen supply to the aerobic bacteria that is responsible for treating the sewage. For additional details, refer to ADS 4950-01. Chlorination Chamber: Chlorine analyzers are used to ensure adequate disinfection without overchlorination. For additional details, refer to ADS 4950-10. Dechlorination Chamber: Chlorine (Dechlorination) analyzers monitor the effluent leaving the plant and provide a signal for control of dechlorination chemical addition. For additional details, refer to ADS 4950-10.

For more information on influent monitoring, see ADS 4950-12.

For more information on aeration basin/ activated sludge process, see ADS 4950-01.
