Case Study

Motion Detection Means Process Protection


A major water treatment facility in central Canada processes over 300 million gallons of waste water each day.

The plant has a daily sludge handling and disposal capacity of over 55 tons of cake. That’s nearly 40 average-sized passenger cars’ worth of sludge cake removed each and every day! Monitoring the screw conveyor’s motion is crucial to keeping operations running smoothly in the sludge dewatering and disposal system.

Any interruption to these processes has to be monitored and reported instantly. Learn about the process protection devices that the plant uses, which consist of a motion failure alarm controller and a heavy-duty motion sensing probe.
