It is estimated that by 2021, textile industries will account 349 million m3 of wastewater which will be detrimental to surrounding biodiversity and aquatic ecosystem. By, law effluent discharges must meet the “Quality Standards for Classified Industries”. They also state that the Department of Environment can undertake spot checks at any time and the pollution levels must not exceed these Quality standards. The Department of Environment has stated that ETP’s must be operated in such a way that it treats the wastewater to these standards or will be blacklisted.
Client a renowned manufacturer operating in the composite knit sector
since 1996 required an automatic system – to monitor effluent at discharged point in real-time, display effluent parametric data on-line,
analyze the data, keep history of records, and generate alarm/notification
based on dynamic input from users. This would enable them to undertake
proper management for proactive maintenance and cost minimization.
COD, BOD & TSS
Hydroquo+ developed and deployed a monitoring station consisting of
UV-VIS spectrometer-based sensors for measurement of (COD, BOD &
TSS), probes for DO, pH that came with an online platform for
monitoring, tracking, and alarming. The spectral alarm were pre-set for
TSS:100 mg/l , BOD:150 mg/l, COD:250 mg/l , DO:0.3 mg/l & pH:9.
