Sludge dewatering

Level detection of sludge and water

Process data

Measuring task:
Point level detection
Measuring point:
Measuring range up to:
0.5 … 1 m
Process temperature:
+20 ... +40 °C
Process pressure:
0 … 0 bar
Special challenges:
Abrasion, buildup


The digested sludge is dewatered prior to drying in centrifuges or filter presses. The sludge liquor thus obtained passes through the cleaning process of the WWTP once again. A level detector controls the pumps in the filter water tank to prevent overfilling. The discharge of the dewatered sludge is controlled by a point level sensor.

Your benefit

Reliable monitoring of the dewatering process
Cost effective
Optimal operation of the equipment
User friendly
Robust, maintenance-free sensor technology
