Wastewater treatment solutions supplied by FlotLife are equipped with an automated control system and smart technologies which can seamlessly consolidate and rationalize wastewater treatment plant data and enhance operator response to changing conditions, both improving plant safety and uptime, and saving costs.
Automation helps you save money in three ways:
1) reducing energy consumption;
2) providing more efficient dosing of chemicals;
3) reducing the presence of service personnel in the wastewater treatment plant.
For wastewater treatment, energy is the biggest expense item, and this is the main point where automation can cut costs. For example, blowers used in aeration tanks operating in unregulated mode can cost up to 60% of the total energy cost of the wastewater treatment plant. By automating this process, the exact amount of air is delivered at the exact tank level and at the right time.
Similarly, the dosage of chemicals for coagulation, flocculation and sludge dewatering can be fully automated, which also reduces both energy costs and the presence of human resources.
The automation system provides real-time messaging, storing historical data, exchanging data with other related systems, and other monitoring and control functions.
The automation solution used by FlotLife is based on SCADA's open architecture, SIEMENS SIMATIC WinCC technology and CONNECTED DAF mobile application.
FlotLife’s CONNECTED DAF application provides in-depth monitoring of dissolved air flotation processes by analyzing data acquired through high-performance sensors. The application uses machine learning based asset models and analytics to monitor your flotation processes 24 hours a day.
