Optical Oxygen Sensors Promote Efficiency Gains

Tight control of the biological process in aeration basins is the lynchpin of wastewater treatment at municipal facilities. To perform at their peak, the “bugs” in these basins require a specific amount of oxygen. However, the air blowers controlling this process consume a significant amount of energy and thereby represent a major expense. Now, advanced solutions are available that provide a cost-effective method to measure the oxygen for automatic control in the basins without the need for frequent maintenance.
