Paper Abstract

A brand-new photoelectric detector for monitoring the fluctuation of transmitted light is introduced in this article. The state of aggregation and the detailed flocculation process of particles can be analyzed and monitored by this method. In particular, the output of the monitor is the ratio of fluctuation signal and the transmitted light intensity, the R(Ratio)value, which remains unaffected by fouling of optical surfaces of electrical elements. This provides a unique monitoring technique in oily wastewater treatment. Results have shown that the monitor is quite successful for controlling the coagulant dosages through pilot scale studies in DaQing oil field.
