Application Note: Phosphorus Limit Compliance, Optimize Chemical Dosage & Process Control
A major soft drink manufacturer has a limit of 2 mg/L of total phosphorus in its final effluent. With production spills and scheduled discharges of nonconformance product, a local plant was at risk of not meeting its phosphorus limits.
Real-time analysis from the Hach® RTC-P system, combined with ChemTreat’s 8200-L precipitant, helped reduce the manufacturer’s phosphorus levels below the allowable limit. The manufacturer has been able to meet its compliance limits. The phosphate discharge values are now controlled at less than 2 parts per million (ppm) total phosphorus. Total suspended solids (TSS) and turbidity readings are reduced by approximately 10%.
