Operational decisions can be difficult to make when incoming wastewater quality fluctuates. Industrial manufacturers can discharge highly concentrated wastewater unexpectedly causing operational problems if not detected. Aside from potential operational problems, shock loading also has the potential to affect regulatory compliance if wastewater cannot be treated properly.
Online UV/Vis spectral analysis can provide real-time, BOD equivalent data that can significantly help operators detect and characterize abnormalities, daily and seasonal fluctuations in the influent water, and make adjustments accordingly to optimize the treatment process. This will ensure that the treatment standards are met while costs are minimized.
• Real-time, BOD equivalent monitoring • Process adjustments to improve effluent quality • Limit potential for non-compliance
