International technology Group ANDRITZ has introduced the next generation of its unique Metris addIQ RheoScan, the world’s first patented, optical measurement system for automatic polymer dosage in belt presses and gravity belt tables.
Metris addIQ RheoScan, patented, optical measurement system for automatic polymer dosage
Optimized dosage saves polymer, resulting in OPEX reduction by up to 40 % for sewage sludge, coal sludge or paper sludge dewatering. The cutting-edge technologies used also help to maintain optimum cake dryness and to identify blinded belts which in turn leads to smoother operations. Installations in wastewater treatment plants with digestion processes have seen the additional benefit of higher gas yields. Metris addIQ RheoScan operates without supervision and can be applied to any belt press or gravity belt table in all types of municipal and industrial sludge processing facilities. Customers who have installed a Metris addIQ RheoScan generally recouped their investment in less than a year.
