A Solution for Degremont

Application Engeneering Case Study

The primary aim of wastewater treatment is to remove solids from wastewater. This process produces a sludge, which must be stored in hazardous areas in the wastewater plant. Gas risks are related to the appearance of CO, H2S and CH4, making fast detection of these gases urgent.

Degremont, the water treatment plant specialist, subsidiary of Suez Environnement, commissioned our Specialists for its plant in Evreux, France. All sludge is handled by cranes. As such, the best solution is to install gas detectors on the shovel of the crane. In order to ease the installation and reduce the cost, Application Engeneering department designed and developed an OLCT80 using wireless technology.
