For the water treatment industry, quality is non-negotiable. Consistently demonstrating that regulatory standards are met, while at the same time driving down treatment costs, provides the stimulus for continuous process improvement. Plant stability is the defining operational goal and a primary driver for the adoption of online analytical tools.
Complementary aims are to:
- Confidently meet quality targets even when raw water quality changes sharply and rapidly
- Reduce chemical consumption in the face of rising costs and reduced availability
- Automate monitoring and provide clear and consistent information for operational decision making
- Minimize sludge production and associated disposal costs.
