NEW! - Design: Time Dosing & Flow Equalization (1 hr)

Design of Time Dosing and Flow Equalization

Overview - Time dosing is used to control pump “off” and “on” times so wastewater is sent to the next downstream component evenly throughout the day, When activated during high-flow events, a peak enable sensor shortens the rest period between doses to allow the system liquid level to gradually return to normal levels. Flow equalization is a management concept that can help reduce stress on system performance due to high variation in flows. In flow equalization, the peak flows are stored for a period of time to be delivered to the next downstream component over a longer time period.
Learning Objectives - At the conclusion of this module, the participate will be able to:
  1. State the objective of timed dosing
  2. Compare the function of demand dosing to timed dosing
  3. Name at least two facility types where incorporating flow equalization could substantially improve system performance improve system performance
  4. Discuss whether these two ways of controlling flows can be used in the same system or not
