  • Rectangular basin 30 m x 8.5 m with two outlet funnels
  • Basin depth 2.8 m
  • Funnel depth 5.8 m

Definition of tasks

  • Sludge discharge control depending on the sludge level
  • Continuous detection of both sludge levels and analog transmission to the control system
  • Cost-efficient measurement system


  • The two-channel version of the NivuScope 2 measurement system has been used to detect two separate sludge levels.
  • Both separate sludge levels have been transmitted to the control system using both current outputs.


  • Maintaining a defined sludge level increases the dry substance concentration and hence increases the efficiency of the digestion tower
