Aluminum Smelter Site

FTS upgraded pre-existing, remotely located, composite sampling hardware that was fatigued and maintenance intensive with telemetry enabled, solar powered units for monitoring of the NPDES permitted discharge points. These units were equipped with integrated flow modules which initiated sample collection, log required flow data necessary for DMR reporting and, by way of telemetry hardware, provide real-time notification to designated personnel, assuring prompt and timely mobilization for sample packaging and transport for laboratory analysis.
