FlocSens Lab

Optical measurement of floc properties.

The dewaterability of a flocculated system can only be evaluated qualitatively on the basis of the floc image before dewatering. However, a system for the reliable evaluation of flocculated particle systems was not available until now. For this reason, we have developed the innovation product FlocSens.

Our solution

FlocSens is a novel, photo-optical online measurement method based on a CCD camera. The measuring system evaluates the floc using empirical correlations. The characteristic values of the sensor provide information on, among other things, floc size distribution and change, shear stability of the flocs, effectiveness of flocculation aids and expected dewaterability of the conditioned sludge.
