Total solids sensor for UASB reactors

Development of an particulate sensor for UASB reactors, an SIA subsidized project, in cooperation with NHL and Lamp-ion B.V.

A new type of sensor has been developed, able to detect the amount of biomass in a live wastewater reactor. Until now, it is only possible to detect the amount of solids in a liquid by removing all water content and weighing, Obviously a tedious task, which can not be done real time.

With the newly developed sensor real time measurement is now possible, resulting in tighter operation of the reactor, and much lower cost in sample preparation and processing.
