Industrial wastewater solutions
A newly revised, full color brochure from Emerson Process Management/Rosemount Analytical discusses the common treatment processes in wastewater facilities, with a focus on liquid analytical measurements. Sanitary wastewater consists of 99% water and about 0.3% dissolved and suspended solids. Wastewater treatment separates these solids from liquids in a multistage process before discharge or re-use. Accurate on-line process instrumentation such as dissolved oxygen, chorine, pH, ORP and suspended solids play a critical role in achieving the plant objective and meeting regulatory compliance.
