Abstract

The required coagulant dosage is strongly related to the quality of raw water or wastewater. Online sensors for most quality parameters are now readily available to treatment facilities, yet remain rarely used in treatment process control. This paper presents the evaluation of an advanced coagulant dosing control system based on online measurements in full-scale processes. The popular multivariate analytical method, partial least square regression, was used to build up the relationship between the coagulant dose and wastewater quality. The system was tested in two wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) in Norway. Coagulant savings up to 30% in Norwegian plants were observed with feed forward calibrations. The considerable savings reduce sludge production, leading to further cost saving on sludge treatment. This paper presents the method, function and experiences of the full-scale implementation of the system in different WWTPs.
