Wastewater experts Ben Barker and Paul Schuitt talk about process control strategies and how to get reliable data from online sensors.

What do I do with all of this data? Often, wastewater facilities will have access to vast amounts of data provided by sensors throughout their process but have difficulties figuring out how the data can be used.

Learn how to improve treatment and reduce operating costs by utilizing sensor data to control wastewater processes. This webinar will cover the implementation of sensor systems, how to acquire reliable data from online sensors, and various process control strategies, such as ammonia-based aeration control, solids retention time (SRT) control, and much more.

Attendees will be able to:

  1. Identify the different control strategies commonly used for wastewater process control.
  2. Apply online instrumentation to these control strategies effectively.
  3. Describe how to get reliable data with online sensors and proper sensor care.

Who should attend:

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