Safety in waste water treatment facilities

In addition to specific process areas of a waste water treatment facility where a wide range of intrinsically safe solutions are required, the water filtration equipment and the entire waste water treatment plant itself must be monitored to protect against corrosive, dusty, dirty, and explosive atmospheres, in addition to lightning protection and purge suppression.

Pepperl Fuchs has a wide range of protection methods that will keep the waste water treatment plant safe and operating effectively.

  • Lightning and surge protection
  • Intrinsic safety
  • Purges suppression

Incineration /odor control + methane recovery- Sludge Treatment

Methane is a by-product of recovered sewage sludge in waste water treatment. Methane is highly flammable, toxic if inhaled or consumed, and can be extremely dangerous if not handled properly. Methane is odorless, while other resulting gases associated with the treatment of raw sewage are highly explosive, such as hydrogen sulfide. Hydrogen sulfide produces an overpowering odor. Pepperl Fuchs has a wide range of intrinsically safe solutions for explosive gases.

Pepperl Fuchs has several technology solutions for waste water facilities that range from point-to-point and multiplexed HART and Fieldbus solutions.

Today, thanks to the Field Barrier, you can directly connect up to 12 PROFIBUS PA or FOUNDATION fieldbus-H1 field devices or a Segment Protector in Division 2 hazardous areas. Each FieldBarrier has 4 IS connections and can be cascaded together with up to 4 FieldBarriers. The four outputs of the FieldBarrier deliver 40 mA and thus allow the connection of many more intrinsically safe field devices. The need for live work on the passive wiring of trunk and fieldbus distribution modules is extremely unlikely; these can be installed using the explosion proof method.

A Robust Solution for Industrial Wastewater Monitoring System

A solution from Advantech

Oadvantech-robust-solution-for-waste-monitoringne of the major companies in China which specializes in automatic control technology of environmental protection plans to upgrade its system to on-line monitoring for wastewater quality so as to improve the degree of automated wastewater quality monitoring and reduce errors in measurement. In order to monitor water quality with early warnings, the new solution has to provide continuous and automatic monitoring by using an accurate data acquisition module and robust embedded computer.

There are many types of industrial wastewater based on different industries and contaminants therefore monitoring system must be designed specifically for the particular type of effluent produced and cover a wide range of measuring parameters. Consequently, the related hardware devices have to have a wide array of IO ports to connect various meters and analyzers. Meanwhile, SCADA software is also a basic requirement to provide remote control with the best human-machine interface for technicians. For system reliability, Advantech proposed a total solution, including hardware and software products to guarantee failure-free reliable and accurate measurements. First of all, an analog input module, ADAM-4017 with isolation protection offers the assurance of stable operation while collects a variety of signals from water quality analyzers and PH/Temperature/Conductivity/DO/Turbidity meter. Secondly, UNO, a DIN-rail and high performance automation computer with rugged design is in charge of processing these raw materials and sending them to the central servers in Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and enterprise’s monitoring room. As for the computers in control centers, simultaneously receiving the on-site data enables technicians or supervisors to continuously monitor the current water quality status through Advantech WebAccess, an HMI/SCADA software that features animated graphics displays, real-time data control, trends, alarms and logs.

Advantech offers ruggedized hardware products with low failure rates for industrial wastewater monitoring systems to ensure best measuring results. In addition, this on-line monitoring system can increase productivity and reduce labor costs through Advantech’s real-time data acquisition and SCADA software to remote control and management

Disinfecting process purifies raw sewage

A solution from Pepperl+Fuchs

pf-disinfection-process-of-raw-sewageIn disinfecting waste water there is the need to accurately batch in chemicals and biological products to purify the raw sewage so that it can safely be released into the environment. Robust continuous level transmitters and point level sensors are required throughout the waste water treatment facility to accomplish this. Methane, acetone, chlorine, and ethanol are used. These gases create hazardous areas where intrinsic safety, purge, or explosion proof solutions will be used.

Large parts of the earth are covered with water, but supplying the world’s population with clean drinking water (potable water) is one of the greatest challenges. Pepperl+Fuchs has a comprehensive line of level sensors products for continuous level measurement and detection instruments for waste water treatment facilities. We can solve your particular measurement tasks in a variety of media and application areas in the waste water treatment facility.

Water and Wastewater Solution With WAGO

WAGO, the pioneer of CAGE CLAMP® spring pressure connection technology, offer an extensive range of automation solutions such as the fieldbus independent WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM, interconnect and interface technology.

CHALLENGE:

Tough demands are placed on technical equipment in the water and wastewater sector: Toughness in aggressive atmospheres, high resistance to shock and vibration and easy installation and handling for reducing installation and maintenance time are just a few of the modern challenges at hand.

APPLICATION:

WAGO  components equipped with Cage Clamp
Convenient fault detection of decentralized pump stations and a cost-effective connection via radio technology, e.g., from the scraper bridge to the control technology, demand practical and low-maintenance solutions to benefit wastewater plant employees. Reliability, quality and ease of use combine to play a decisive role in processing automation efficiency.

BENEFIT:
Daily, WAGO components equipped with CAGE CLAMP® Spring Pressure Connection Technology prove their value under the harshest conditions. Over the years, WAGO has developed an enviable safety record, including approvals for use in potentially explosive environments, an impressive array of robust components that readily withstand aggressive environments and safe, truly maintenance-free connections.

Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary Sewage Treatment

Tri-Phase Automation is a distributor of Pepperl+Fuchs’ products for waste water treatment facilities. You have at your disposal a wide range of I/O isolators and intrinsically safe barriers for nearly all measurement technology applications, e.g. pressure, differential pressure, temperature, flow, level, positioner, Remote I/O, and much more.

Challenge

The demands on technical equipment and water quality regulations continue to evolve. In addition, the volume of water treatment has grown.  With these changes and growth, important supplemental measuring points need to be set up, particularly in decentralized parts of the sewage treatment plant. A sewage treatment plant can cover hundreds of acres and include multiple buildings. Greater amounts of data need to be recorded centrally, and the effort involved in commissioning and maintenance has to be reduced to service all field devices and drives centrally from the control room over a fieldbus system in network segments.

Application Solution

The field instruments and control is truly distributed throughout the sewage treatment plant. FOUNDATION fieldbus, PROFIBUS, and in many cases Hart technology have solved the problem of centralized control. It is likely that upgrades and retrofitting of drinking water and waste water treatment plants will include fieldbus solutions.

Benefits

Field instruments and control is distributed throughout the sewage treatment plant.
