Question
Application Note: Improving Compliance Through Real-Time Phosphorus Control
Summary
Levels of phosphorus must be controlled in wastewater coming from beverage, food and dairy processing plants. Failure to control phosphorus accurately has a negative impact on water quality and can lead to large fines. Overdosing occurs when control continues at the same rate even when phosphorus levels are low. Underdosing happens when phosphorus levels spike in the interval between tests.

 
Answer
Failure to control phosphorus accurately has a negative impact on water quality and can lead to large fines. The widespread practice of manually testing effluent only at set time intervals often leads to overdosing or underdosing with chemical control. Real-time control offers continuous monitoring to allow accurate dosing, giving plants better control over operations, regulatory compliance and costs. This white paper will describe a system for realtime control and the benefits it offers, specifically for plants that are controlling phosphorus by chemical dosing with ferric chloride (FeCl 3 ).
