[EN-IT] MICROexpert: Activated Sludge Diagnostic Tool

MICROexpert: an effective Professional Tool to prevent solid separation problems

MICRO MICROexpert- Technical Sheet

MICROexpert is a knowledge based software tool for diagnosis and trouble-shooting of operational problems in activated sludge. It deals with suspended-solid systems in aerobic or in nutrient removing (N and P) processes, in CSTR (Continuous Stirred Tank Reactor) or Plug Flow reactors. The main goal of this tool is:

  • Detecting, at the right time, functional instability and anomalies in  progress;
  • Advising on possible corrective operations to prevent solid separation problems (bulking, foaming, rising, pin point floc, etc.), and therefore,
  • Avoiding failures of effluent quality.

A holistic approach to diagnosis MICROexpert major strength is its data-fusion, which is the ability to  merge consistently different type of data and information to the best diagnosis:

  • Microscopic sludge analysis on microfauna, sludge biotic index (SBI), sludge floc morphology and filamentous bacterial growth;
  • Laboratory physico-chemical analysis;
  • Operative parameters evaluated on field;
  • Visual investigation on efficiency of each wastewater treatment.

Incubation period and real-time process control MICROexpert exploits the peculiar “slow” dynamics of activated sludge and its incubation time (days before the effects of biological undesiderable anomalies) to predict diagnosis. Infact, a problem could not be promptly detect before it has occurred, by the only physico-chemical parameters. Generally, an incubation period is a considerable lapse of time…  This period (sometimes weeks), has to deal with a lack of a timely diagnosis!
