SmartDose

Intelligent chemical dosing

What is SmartDose?
SmartDose is a system to automate and optimise coagulant dosing in wastewater treatment, aiming for:

  • A constant effluent quality.
  • Avoid overdosing.  
  • Reduce coagulant and neutraliser usage.  
  • Reduce sludge production.  
How does SmartDose work?
SmartDose continuously analyses the feed to the DAF. SmartDose measures if the coagulant dosing rate is correct and automatically adjusts the dosing rate if and when required.
 
The advantages of SmartDose:
  • SmartDose measures at the beginning of the treatment process, so quick reaction times.  
  • SmartDose needs very little maintenance.  
  • No need for operator control of coagulant dosage.  
  • No need for calibration.  
  • No need for preventive overdosing.  
  • The setpoint will be set at the most economical point.  
  • 25-50% less chemical usage.  
  • 15-30% less sludge production.  
  • Only a small upstream balance tank required.
 
  1. Wastewater coming from production process is more or less constant, SmartDose makes small adaptations in order to keep effluent quality (blue line) at its setpoint.
  2. Incoming wastewater pollution increases, SmartDose automatically adapts chemical dosage in order to follow effluent quality setpoint.
  3. Incoming wastewater pollution decreases, SmartDose automatically adapts chemical dosage in order to follow effluent quality setpoint.
