Problem: At the Fourche Creek Treatment Plant in Arkansas, more than 7 mgd is collected, treated, and disposed of as reclaimed water that exceeds water quality standards before being released into the Arkansas River. The plant uses automatic bar screens at their facility for efficiency and ease, and therefore level measurement is critical in monitoring this process and alerting staff to potential overflows. A previously installed radar level transducer failed with no notice. 

Solution: Plant operations chose to replace their existing products with cost-effective Pulsar Measurement REFLECT devices. The 2-wire radar level sensor provides confidence in level measurement in challenging conditions such as turbulent applications with foam present, making it a suitable choice for wastewater pretreatment stages. It is non-contact and thus requires no routine servicing, and its robustness maintains accuracy with moisture, debris and chemicals present.

Result: Fourche Creek saved both time and money, allowing them to protect public health and the environment even more effectively. 888-473-9546;
