Wastewater Monitoring in Hazardous Areas Classification, Requirements and Online Sensor Solutions

Safe Wastewater Monitoring in Hazardous Areas

Hazardous areas are a significant concern in wastewater treatment plants due to the presence of flammable gases and vapors. These areas pose a fire risk when exposed to ignition sources like electrical equipment. To ensure safety and accuracy in wastewater monitoring, it's crucial to understand the classifications and requirements for hazardous areas. Join us on February 29th for this technical webinar, where we explore online sensor technology tailored for hazardous zones in wastewater. Our expert speakers will cover the classifications, applications, requirements, and available sensors, including optical Dissolved Oxygen, pH, ORP, Ammonium, Nitrate, and Total Suspended Solids (TSS) for accurate wastewater monitoring.

You'll learn the following:

  • How to understand the classifications of hazardous areas in wastewater as defined by NFPA Standard 820.
  • How to recognize where hazardous areas occur in wastewater treatment plants and the requirements for these areas.
  • Which online sensors are available to monitor parameters in hazardous areas in wastewater.

Who should attend: 

Water treatment engineers, operators, instrument technicians, and superintendents who want to learn more about online instrumentation and sensor applications.
