The system measures the actual sludge viscosity during the thickening stage in real time. The new system adjusts the polymer dose needed to match changing flow rates and sludge conditions automatically and accurately. This means cost savings of up to 40% for polymer consumption and an increase in plant reliability. Rheoscan can be applied to belt filter presses and gravity belt tables in all types of municipal and industrial sludge processing facilities. IFAT A2/151
