Automated wastewater systems a technological leap – saving time and money
Important technological advances in recent years have meant the Australian food industry can farewell the days of high-maintenance wastewater treatment systems. Automated system instrumentation allows technicians to better track the operations of their wastewater treatment plant and be alerted to any potential issues before they arise — meaning potential cost savings, while keeping the authorities happy.
Even old wastewater treatment plants can benefit from an automated system.
With wastewater treatment plants often located at the back of a production site or set in limited access areas, automated system instrumentation coupled with remote monitoring capabilities can have enormous benefits. Remote monitoring means technicians can keep on top of wastewater levels and adjust the system without physically being on site. This can have a huge impact on the bottom line, freeing up staff to concentrate on quality control on the production line instead.
“Companies are now encouraged to prepare detailed reports for local council authorities. Automated system controls ensure that data is continually being collected, which means reports can be quickly generated for council. In turn, this also reduces the frequency of independent testing, saving the industry valuable time and money,” Anderson added.
Aerofloat’s remote monitoring capabilities allow technicians at Micropellets in Braeside, Victoria, to log onto the system from anywhere in the world to check the operations, monitor the waste and adjust the system as required.
The peace of mind that comes with knowing that wastewater system automation is continuing to work even after staff have clocked off for the day cannot be underestimated.
