Clarifier level

In small wastewater treatment facilities with only one clarifier, it is advantageous to know the clarifier’s surface level. In larger plants where influent flow is routed through a splitter box to many clarifiers, there may be insufficient room inside the splitter box to accommodate level instrumentation. In this instance level monitoring of the clarifier will help attain proper load balance.


Continuous monitoring of the clarifier level will maximize efficient treatment flow within primary and secondary sedimentation areas where the majority of suspended solids are removed.
