The Smart Sludge Pump Management Project

Project Number # 2047

Developing a tailor-made rheological measurement protocol for investigating the change of sludge rheological properties over one year around a pumping system

Optimisation of pumping systems can significantly reduce the energy consumed by wastewater treatment plants since pumps are amongst the highest energy consumers in the wastewater treatment process. Rheological Characterisation of sludge provides the essential information used in the design and optimisation of pumping systems.
