Application Note: RTC Sludge Dewatering Improves Efficiency, Optimizes Polymer Feed at Bowling Green
 
At BGMU, operational challenges such as unpredictable sludge consistency, high polymer costs, and highly manual processes at the facility's two centrifuges led to high costs and inefficient operations. The plant installed the Hach RTC-SD Real-Time Sludge Dewatering System to replace grab sampling in the feed sludge with real-time flow and solids measurements to better dose polymer. Continuous analysis provided by RTC-SD helps BGMU properly treat sludge during the dewatering processes, allowing the plant to run more consistently. This results in 70% fewer manual operations at the centrifuges and 58% less polymer spend.
