Suspended Solids Meter
Available from Markland Specialty Engineering Ltd
Easily measure the concentration of sludge’s or slurries without the reading being affected by color using the Markland Model 502 Suspended Solids Meter. The meter can be used in drinking water plants to measure the concentration of the backwash sludge from sand or membrane filters before it is sent for further processing. In wastewater treatment plants it is used to measure primary, secondary and return activated sludge’s. Industrial sludge’s and process slurries can also be monitored. It uses the attenuation of ultrasound to read the concentration. The meter can be mounted in open top tanks or pipelines. It measures slurries that are too thick for optical methods. Ultrasound is inherently safe so it requires no permits or regulatory approvals to operate. Markland offers free testing of your samples. After the test we will send you a report showing the meter’s response to your range of interest.
