On-line sensors for SBR's

GRADIENT has designed an on-line spectrophotometer, based the results of the off-line device obtained in the six previous months. It was built by the Secomam company and called STAC. After some calibration and validation assays, it was integrated for the on-line monitoring system of the SBR at the INRA in Narbonne. POLIMI has developed five titrimetric pH-stat and pH/DO-stat procedures (MODEs) for the evaluation of fundamental parameters related to both the nitrification and denitrification processes. All MODEs were experimentally validated by using the off-line titrator (MARTINA, developed in cooperation with ENEA) on sludge samples drawn from the lab-scale POLINI-SBR. Then, in cooperation with SPES, these procedures were implemented on the on-line titrator (TITAAN), which was first tested and debugged on the pilot-scale ENEA-SBR and then shipped to Narbonne to be integrated in the monitoring system of the pilot-scale INRA-SBR.
