For decades, Endress+Hauser Canada Ltd. has kept businesses competitive with premier test and measurement instrumentation. One innovative solution that the company offers, particularly for the food-processing sector, is sustainability through effluent monitoring. With a redundant pH system, capable of self-monitoring to ensure continual operation, users avoid fines by making sure that their wastewater effluent loads are always within appropriate discharge limits.
Meet all relevant discharge regulations
Endress+Hauser’s effluent monitoring solution consists of a base package with a redundant pH system. Three pH measurements are analyzed in a CM444 transmitter to output the average of the two closest values. If any one drifts out of tolerance, an alarm goes off. These solutions come with commissioning, remote monitoring, and reactive service support.
The benefits of monitoring a plant’s effluent include the following:
- All relevant discharge regulations are met, resulting in no fines;
- Historical data of the effluent are available for tracing;
- Transparency of effluent leaves the plant to identify all processes and activities within it that may cause product loss;
- Users can trust in pH measurements and receive instant e-mail and SMS notifications of pH spikes; and
- Businesses have peace of mind, knowing that their effluent discharges are compliant with all federal and provincial legislation.
The user can equip this effluent monitoring system with product-loss detection and total suspended solids measurement, as well as the Endress+Hauser Cleanfit retractable cleaning system and CSG34 sampling system; these enhancements ensure that companies have more information and insight into their effluent processes.
Monitoring effluent is a considerable need when fines for violators continue to increase across Canada, especially in Ontario, British Columbia, and Alberta. Governments have raised pressure to reduce biochemical oxygen demand effluent loads and spikes in pH. So it is important to make sure that every plant has an accurate, available pH measurement. This has been a challenge in industry for a long time and takes significant effort and resources to accomplish.
A company cannot manage what it cannot control, and it cannot control what it does not measure. With Endress+Hauser’s help, this issue is solved.
