The Sludge Tracker is an advanced sludge blanket level detector designed for superior sludge level detection in a wide range of water and wastewater applications.
Sludge blankets in up to four tanks can be monitored by a single system for cost-effective measurement.
Sludge level measurements are made by transmitting a high frequency sound pulse down into the tank. The pulse is reflected back from the top of the blanket and the time taken for the refelection to return to the sensor is converted into the distance to the blanket.
Water and wastewater applications for the Sludge Tracker include clarifiers, thickeners, sedimentation basins, contact clarifiers, raw water clarifiers, dewatering bins, round and rectangular tanks, and many other municipal and industrial applications.

The Sludge Tracker is available with an autoclean head. A wiper blade removes sludge build up evey 15 minutes to allow long period on unattended operation.
It is important to maintain the correct level of sludge in primary tanks and to de sludge them before 'bulking' occurs.
The Sludge Tracker provides a 4-20mA out put for the sludge blanket level in up 4 tanks.
The Sludge Tracker is in use on both circular primary tanks with rotating scraper bridges and rectuangular tanks. In rectangular tank applications the software of the Sludge Tracker allows operation right over the sludge hopper.
