Enhanced Dewatering

SMART Enhanced Dewatering

This is one of Kemiras First SMART Applications. It is based on 2 KPIs: total Dry Solids and centrate/filtrate TSS of treated waste. This shows the true value of the Kemira Treatment relative to overall OPEX Savings. Our Auto-Optimized Dosing System allows customer to maintain a consistent high levels of treated solids. 1

Kemira Enhanced Dewatering Concept

Aims :- To optimize process- Increase cake value- Capture P into cake- Increase cake solids content- Reduce struvite fouling- Reduce overall costs

- Future option as fee for service :- (/TDS /P removal)

The higher the cake DS%, the lower the OPEX.Kemiras new system is designed to maximise and maintain consistently higher cake solids

DSC%For a WWTP processing 15K Wet Tons / Year = >90K in cost savings!This customer now hauls away 3 trucks per week of biosolids versus 4.Potential performance

The important thing here is that if a customer today is running inconsistently at low DSC%. With Kemiras SMART system, the customer could be running at higher DSC% consistently over a year run. We have the process knowledge and equipment to do this. We will offer turn-key packages. 12

For the lowest turbidity and the highest solids content: SOLITAX sc


Wide field of application The high-precision process probes ofthe SOLITAX sc family determine turbi-dity in ultraclear to strongly turbidliquids, and solids concentrations inactivated, primary and digested slud-ges. The potential applications forSOLITAX sc therefore range from drin-king and wastewater treatment to themonitoring of surface water and thetreatment of sludge.

Colour-independentmeasurement of solidsNo calibrationProven cleaning systemAs in-tank or in-pipeprobeCombinable with probesfor O2, NO3, pH, etc

Economically efficientTime-consuming multipoint calibra-tions with dilution series are replacedby a single correction factor. The widerange from 0.001 FNU to 150 g/lcovers the optimal solution for everyapplication. The measurement data isdisplayed and processed with the helpof the SC100 or SC1000 Controller. Inshort: Advantages that are long-lastingand economically efficient.

SOLITAX sc variants


Persuasive advantages: SOLITAX sc

Maximum variabilityTurbidity and solids measurement, pla-stic or stainless steel housing, with orwithout wiper system - SOLITAX scoffers the right probe for every field ofapplication. This variability is also reflected in thefixing systems for the immersion andin-pipe probes.

Maximum time savingAll SOLITAX sc probes are factory cali-brated in conformity with DIN EN ISO7027 for long-term calibration stability.A correction factor replaces the time-consuming multipoint on-site calibra-tions. The automatic wiper eliminatessoiling of the measurement window asit occurs. The result: more stable mea-sured values and lower maintenancecosts.
