Removal of suspended matter

Removal of suspended matter

Energy-efficient systems

Acquire relevant measured values and control the dosing unit depending on the flow rate.

Sieve and filter systems are used after water extraction to reduce turbidity. .Along with the necessary purification of the water, this also protects downstream plant parts.

With Phoenix Contact solutions, you can acquire all process-relevant measured values from the suspended matter removal parts of the plant. An open control technology allows the process to be controlled easily and securely.

Your advantages

  • Energy costs are reduced by identifying potential savings, thanks to modular energy data acquisition
  • Optimize system utilization, thanks to intelligent switching of system parts
  • Reduce peak loads with predictive trend calculation

Modular control of filtration stages

Rotary drum system  

Reliable control of filtration

The first surface water processing stage takes place in a rotary drum system.

The PLCnext Control range of modular control technology facilitates reliable control of filtration based on the measured values acquired through various standard interfaces.

Innovative energy data acquisition

Control cabinet with components for energy data acquisition  

Acquiring energy data with modular power measurement terminal

In the agglomeration, the size of flocculation is controlled by applying energy.

This is achieved via speed control. Monitoring the energy applied to the motors provides an opportunity for energy optimization. Acquire data with our IoT-capable EMpro energy measuring devices.

Flexible Ethernet networks

Open filtration stage  

Easy integration of control via PROFINET

The open filtration stage operates according to the overflow principle, as the retention time of the water has a considerable influence on the purification performance.

Easily integrate the safe control of the valves and drive technology into your network via Modbus, PROFIBUS, or PROFINET.

Flexible adaptation to your automation task

Controllers with various performance classes are available within the PLCnext Technology framework. This allows ideal adaptation to your specific automation task.

The controllers can communicate with the field devices using current and future communication standards such as PROFINET, PROFIBUS, and Modbus. The remote connection to the control level is realized with a protocol suitable for this, such as OPC UA, DNP3, and IEC 60870-5-104.
