Smart ETP

Wastewater treatment systems are often built with controls and automation features so that the system runs virtually on its own. The sequence of events is programmed to run like clockwork, based on measurements that are taken along the way.

KANKYO has come out with a SMART solution to operate and monitor the wastewater treatment plants.

Remotely monitor effluents in water from anywhere online and in real time. We help you implement online monitoring of effluents level in waste water. Online monitoring enables you to identify unacceptable conditions that may occur immediately. Continuous effluent monitoring ensures that effluent levels in discharged water is within regulatory levels & any problems identified immediately.

Why monitor effluents in water?

Water is essential to all forms of life on our planet. Water is also a vital resource for agriculture, manufacturing and many other human activities. Despite its importance, water is the most poorly managed resource in the world. Contamination of ground and surface water can happen from several sources. In agricultural areas, fertilizers are the major source of contamination. In urban areas, the careless disposal of industrial effluents and other wastes leads to the poor quality of the water.

Effluents affect our environment and health and demand constant monitoring and control. This demands cleaner waste water discharges to both sewer and watercourses. And this can be achieved by systems that monitor, treat and remove effluents prior to discharge.

Measure, analyze & improve

Real time monitoring of these treatment systems helps ensure regulatory compliance and minimizing the risk of effluents discharge. Real time monitoring alerts your engineers if concentrations of effluents cross-regulatory levels. You can then re-process wastewater prior to discharge. Online monitoring can lead to cost savings by increasing the efficiency of the treatment process.

A cellular data logging system remotely monitors and manage effluent water quality and help maintain compliance. The effluent monitoring system is comprised of a GPRS gateway, sensors and software platform. At fixed intervals, 24x7, the system sends water quality reading to the central server. The system also alerts the engineer's via SMS, over his mobile, if the water quality readings exceed regulation. No more is the need for someone to monitor the data continuously. The real time monitoring system keeps watch over the effluent – and saves time, money, and labor

The pollution control board previously employed field technicians. These technicians manually monitored effluent water quality by visiting the remote site, collecting the data, and reporting their findings. With the switch to a GPRS solution, the company has realized an immediate and significant improvement in operational efficiency and time savings.

Process automation technology is one of the greatest assets to manufacturing and industrial facilities. Automated systems allow facility staff to almost completely ignore the wastewater treatment system, freeing them to work on other tasks. This can also help to control operating costs, as a dedicated staff member may not be necessary or no additional staff are needed to man the new, state-of-art automated treatment system. Beyond that, the data that is collected about the system’s performance and chemical usage (and so on) is a valuable asset in itself. Wastewater is a telling medium, as it contains the waste from the manufacturing processes.

If the wastewater contains an abnormal contaminant or abnormal levels of a contaminant, this can be an indication of an issue with the actual product. This data provides facility managers with the information they need to measure key performance indicators, predict down time, and prevent costly losses due to bad batches.

Automation features, however, are only as smart as the people who have designed and implemented the program. While a system may run

The new design and special sintered electrodes ensure its long life and show a higher oxidation capacity than other advanced oxidation technologies. It also allows the disinfection of treated water “in situ”.

almost completely autonomously, it still requires maintenance, monitoring, optimizing, and other human intervention from time to time. For this reason, KANKYO recommends that wastewater treatment systems have one or more dedicated staff members to operate the system. While they will not be turning on pumps manually after reading tank levels with a ruler, they will be:

Once the water has gone through this process it is transparent, odourless and colourless, and may be suitable for other use.
