Question
Meeting Total Phosphorus compliance standards and reducing costs
Summary
Meeting Total Phosphorus compliance standards without a violation and reducing chemical and sludge handling costs.
Answer
The wastewater treatment facility at one of the world’s leading animal protein processors looked to maintain very strict environmental standards of < 1.6 mg/L
Total Phosphorus in accordance with their consent to discharge limit.
Using Hach's RTC-P system provided real-time analysis of orthophosphate, translates the result to a Total Phosphorus reading, and automatically controls the chemical precipitant dosing pump to regulate delivery. Compliance was met without a violation and the plant significantly reduced its chemical and sludge handling costs, saving $60K within the first year of operation.
