During the renovation of a wastewater facility it was determined that a flexible and durable transmitter was needed for the installation. A universal transmitter like Hockey Puck Model TXUN-ST or DIN Rail Model DRST-UN was specified for the application - and proved itself so well in action that it is now the site standard.
This wastewater facility delivers water and wastewater services to a city and parts of the surrounding city areas. The facility designs, constructs and operates the drinking water supply and sanitation including wastewater treatment and structural maintenance and operation of equipment. When renovating one of its wastewater facilities it was decided to replace two old digesters with a new one having a capacity of 7500 m³. At the same time the electrical, instrumentation and control technologies were renewed. The two smaller digestion tanks had reached their capacity limit and needed to be replaced. For the installation it was specified that universal transmitters were required to measure status input from the valves and to power pressure and flow transmitters in the tank. The transmitter’s durability and ability to offer active/passive input were important for this application. The transmitter quickly proved itself in action and subsequently became the site standard. The new digestion tower will has been put into operation, and the new installation has provided additional capacity for the sludge and improved the efficiency of the plant.
