We've discussed the complexities of monitoring the waste stream in wastewater treatment applications, but what about the plant itself?
Wastewater treatment plants present a high potential for the existence of hazardous conditions arising from combustible gases, toxic gases and oxygen deficiency. The potential hazards can result in catastrophic property loss as well as personnel safety & health issues.
That's why is crucial to have an area monitoring system in place.
Our SmartMaxII systems equipped with catalytic or electrochemical sensors continuously monitor the area of the treatment plant for methane, hydrogen sulfide and oxygen deficiency.
These areas include:
- pump rooms
- screen chambers
- wet wells
- grit pump
- wash areas
- storage & metering area
- other work areas
Each SmartMaxII system continuously monitors and controls up to 4 independent sensors while displaying multiple systems remotely.
