Sludge Blanket Level Detectors use ultrasonic technology, so they are also known as ultrasonic mud level meters.
Ultrasonic Sludge Blanket Level Detector uses ultrasonic emission with echo analysis of solids suspended in water. The height and thickness of the sludge layer can be accurately measured. Effective grasp of sludge settling characteristics. The control of sludge return flow rate.
Ultrasonic sludge interface meter/mud level meter supports various variable outputs. Such as 4-20mA variable output, relay high and low alarm control output, and RS485 communication output.
Automatic monitoring and control of sludge level can be achieved by setting the Ultrasonic Sludge level sensor.
What is sludge blanket level?
Sludge (sludge) is a solid settling material produced by water and wastewater treatment processes. The sludge blanket level is the interface between the settled sludge and the turbid or clear water phase above. The sludge level can be the distance from the water surface (sludge level depth) or the distance from the bottom of the tank (sludge level height).
Due to the highly variable nature of all types of sludge, classification is essential, and its treatment and disposal are different. According to its origin, it can be classified as
- Municipal sludge (civil sludge, also called drainage cement sewage sludge,). It mainly refers to sludge from sewage plants, which is the largest category of sludge in terms of quantity. In addition, sludge from waterworks can also be included in this category.
- Pipe network sludge, sludge from drainage collection systems.
- River and lake sludge, sludge from rivers and lakes.
- Industrial sludge, from a mixture of solids and water, oil, chemical pollution, and organic matter produced by various industrial production.
In (waste) water treatment and process control, sludge water level is an important parameter. Especially in the process of phase separation, accurate sludge level information is crucial. Automatic Sludge Blanket Level Detector can be installed in clear, turbid or even heavily contaminated media with high concentration of suspended matter.
