Process Control Strategies for Activated Sludge Optimization

Begins: 21 Jan 2021 12:00 AM EDT
Ends: 21 Jan 2021 1:00 PM EDT
Presenter(s): Ben Barker and Steve Wortendyke


Join YSI experts Benjamin Barker and Steve Wortendyke as they review solids control strategies in municipal wastewater applications.

Biologically active sludge is a fundamental aspect of secondary treatment in wastewater treatment facilities. Cultivating and maintaining the healthy biomass of microorganisms for effective nutrient removal is no easy feat. However, by carefully controlling for a few key process parameters, the optimal biomass for activated sludge can be sustained and lead to a stable and consistent process. This webinar will describe solids control strategies and how TSS, sludge level, and BOD/COD data from online instrumentation can be used for improved monitoring and control of activated sludge.

After watching the webinar, attendees will be able to:

  • Describe and identify factors that contribute to an effective activated sludge process.
  • Understand how to use process parameters, such as Solids Retention Time (SRT), F: M Ratio, and MLSS Control, for real-time control.
  • Apply online instrumentation to monitor and control the activated sludge process.

Who Should Watch:

Engineers, operators, instrument technicians, and superintendents who want to learn more about wastewater solids control strategies.
