High Suspended Solids in Booth Water

High or increasing suspended solids levels are a signal that sludge deposition could follow, leading to poor booth performance. Some reasons for increased/high suspended solids include improper or out of balance chemical treatment, paint/solvent dumps, changes in production levels, sludge handling equipment not running to spec (change in flow rate, etc.), system was recently “cleaned” and some solids were left behind, and more.
