Water monitoring: TSS in Sewers & Overflows

Tracking Total Suspended Solids (TSS) is crucial for gaining valuable insights into water quality evolution. Additionally, it serves as an alarm system for breakthroughs or overflows. The durable Olpas Tentacle sensors are versatile, capable of installation in open water, slowly running rivers, and even in challenging environments such as sewers and overflows.

Water monitoring: TSS in Sewers & Overflows

Olpas Tentacle Sensors have been build with remote monitoring in mind. The sensors use less energy, are accurate, and fouling resistant. This makes them the most optimal practical and economical choice for remote monitoring.

"The impressive fouling resistance of the OLPAS Technology, makes the Olpas Tentacle sensor the ideal solution to measure TSS in sewers or urban waste water"
  • (Bio)fouling resistance, resulting in 4 times longer maintenance intervals

  • No automated mechanical cleaning necessary (so, finally a measurement solution that does not need automated wipers!)

  • Low energy usage

  • IoT-ready, with digital output optimised for energy efficient data communication

  • Easy to connect to an external powersupply (batteries or solar)

  • Operates in direct sunlight

  • Not influenced by colour changes of the fluid

  • A direct TSS-measurement, not measuring optical parameters


The sensors are suitable for measurements in

  • sewers

  • sewer overflows

  • CSO spills

  • WWTP-influent

  • open waters, canals and natural rivers

  • bulk water

  • WWTP-effluent
