SME CONFERENCE, Phoenix Arizona 2024

Date posted: November 15, 2023


Precision Light and Air will be showcasing SmartDiver, automatic mud diver for bed level measurement in thickeners, clarifiers and CCD’s.

SmartDiver also provides tank profiling (suspended solids vs depth).

These measurements have greatly contributed to the optimization of our client’s thickener control and have resulted in:

  • Reduction of flocculant consumption
  • Increased underflow density
  • Enhanced overflow clarity
  • Reduction of sliming or flare events
  • Reduction/elimination of rake bogging

Visit us at booth 210 to discuss how the SmartDiver can help to make your process more efficient.
