Valmet LS remote monitoring solution

Valmet analyzers and measurement solutions portfolio includes long tradition of pioneering innovative measurement solutions in challenging process areas, such as pulp and paper, chemical, power, pharma and food industries measurement and control applications. 

Valmet Low Solids Measurement (Valmet LS) allows wastewater treatment plant operators to measure low solids in difficult applications like centrifuge centrate and aeration tank mixed liquor suspended solids. 

The remote monitoring solution allows monitor and control of the installed sensors through a web based application. The application is built on top of the Thingworx architecture.

Throught the web application the users can access operational data, usage parameters and alarm information from all the sensors. Later the application can be integrated with other Valmet’s systems and the data combined and analyzed on a wider scale.

”The need for sensor remote monitoring implementation was derived from needs of everyday field use. The challenge was to have the basic functionality ready quickly and cost-effectively and still have system-wide possibility for further development of the features. ”
Mika Karaila, Research Program Manager, Valmet.
