Modern Wastewater Treatment Solutions

Use fewer polymers and reduce energy consumption to consistently produce with ProcessMiner’s advanced water treatment solutions. Our platform optimizes the sludge dewatering process, increasing plant performance and efficiency while reducing costs.

Addressing Top Challenges With Artificial Intelligence

Rapid population growth and tighter regulations call for advanced wastewater treatment strategies that extend existing budgets and improve productivity. Our wastewater treatment solutions use AI and intelligent sensors and meters to continuously monitor and autonomously optimize polymer dosage, producing a consistently dry sludge cake. It proactively addresses top challenges, such as:

Rising Operational Costs

Inefficient wastewater treatment increases energy consumption, carbon footprint, disposal, and operational costs. Our platform improves treatment by optimizing key control elements of the sludge dewatering process, reducing the costs of chemistry, energy, sludge transportation, and incineration.

Dosing/Quality Variations

Pollutants like PFAS and microplastics require an improved water treatment strategy. ProcessMiner is a modern approach to treating wastewater. It continuously assesses water quality and adjusting polymer dosage in real time.

Supply Chain Disruptions

Unpredictable polymer availability can disrupt wastewater operations. Our platform optimizes polymer use, reducing supply chain disruptions to maintain uninterrupted, cost-efficient wastewater treatment processes despite market changes. It also supports A/B polymer control testing for evaluating chemical supplier options.

24/7 Operational Demands

Continuous operation poses a significant challenge. ProcessMiner’s treatment technology automates the sludge dewatering process, freeing plant staff to focus on other critical day-to-day activities. 

Growing Regulations & Sustainability

Keeping up with regulations can be challenging, exposing wastewater operations to risks of non-compliance. Our platform helps reduce waste, PFAS, and microplastics, and keeps filtrate quality steady to comply with changing regulations.
