NAZARETH, Belgium & EGLOFFSTEIN, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AppliTek NV, specialist manufacturer of on-line analyzers and monitoring systems, has the pleasure to announce its latest analytical solution, called EZ-Charge®, for reducing the potentially skyrocketing costs that come with controlling the amount of suspended solids in waste water treatment. The novel water analyzer has been developed in cooperation with AQRatio (Germany), a company specialized in sewage sludge analysis and control.
“As far as we know, our EZ-Charge on-line analyzer is the only system commercially available on the market and beats existing and flawed measuring techniques which are currently being used to control the dosing of polymers” said David Laurier, CEO and Vice Chairman of the Board at AppliTek.
Polymers such as coagulants and flocculants are used in chemical separation, a process involving the precipitation of suspended solids in dirty water. Separation is commonly used in waste water treatment and surface water intake for potable water. Due to the dynamic character of many water treatment works it is difficult to measure and control the actual optimal dosing of the chemicals.
In an attempt to control the dosing of the chemicals, operators rely on a number of existing indirect or manual analytical methods that hardly contribute to process transparency. In many cases, “optimal” dosing is based on trial and error, at the expense of excess chemicals.
On-line monitoring is an excellent tool to cope with the dynamic character of water treatment works and provides operators real-time data to take corrective actions when needed. The EZ-Charge® is developed to meet the needs of operators to effectively measure and control the charge density.
Field tests in water treatment works in Germany, including one of the biggest plants in Germany have demonstrated that the EZ-Charge® provides meaningful information to the personnel in the field. Adopting a control strategy based on EZ-Charge® data will assure a process with real-time control, efficient dosing, less giveaways and, in the end, considerable savings for the end user.
