Sludge Blanket Level Detector
Sludge Blanket Level Measurement System
Pulsar’s Sludge Finder 2 is a controller and transducer system that provides reliable continuous sludge blanket level measurement. It is used in thousands of applications worldwide for detecting sludge blanket levels in primary, secondary, tertiary settlement tanks either with stationary or travelling bridges, clarifiers, gravity thickeners or sequencing batch reactor (SBR) systems.
The two-part system includes a Viper Transducer which is purposely designed for sludge blanket level measurement. This purpose-built sludge level sensor uses sonar technology it is submersed into the liquid and detects the echoes from the material – any distinct density changes are reflected back to the transducer, the time taken for the echo to return is transmitted to the controller and the distance to the interface is calculated.
