The ITX Suspended Solids Sensor is the ultimate tool for effective process control. The sensor is used for continuous measurement of suspended solids in aeration basins (MLSS), return sludge troughs, SBR-systems, raw sewage, primary clarifier effluent and sewer monitoring in industrial plants. The sensor is an integral part of controlling solids retention time (SRT) or sludge age. The measuring principle is a single beam of pulsed NIR-light. The LED light source pulses at 880 nm and has a guaranteed life of at least three years. In each installation the meter is calibrated using actual lab tests for up to five sample points. An automatic cleaning system with built-in flushing nozzles ensures accurate measurements with little maintenance.
