Services - Commissioning

By: Dayton Knight  09-12-2011

The essential objectives of the Commissioning Process are:

Prior to every system startup, Opus DaytonKnight thoroughly inspects the installation of all equipment. We then verify the robustness of the communication system utilizing sophisticated equipment. Controls and instrumentation, so closely related to SCADA installations, receive an extensive loop checkout procedure that includes the final calibration of all related equipment.

At the same time, our water or wastewater engineers verify the system, and provide the initial training to the operator on the operations and maintenance of the system.

During commissioning, Opus DaytonKnight verifies that the process database is complete, confirms the operation of links between the HMI graphics screen and the control system, tests alarming, ensures that desired reports can be generated and also ensures that the system will function within a broader network.The start-up period will not begin until commissioning is completed to the satisfaction of the client and design engineers.We also encourage operators to become acquainted with the system during this phase and their input becomes an integral part of the development process.

Other products and services from Dayton Knight


Odour Control

Chemical addition (ferrous chloride, ferric chloride, hydrogen peroxide, potassium permanganate, sodium hypochlorite). Compost biofilters (for scrubbing wastewater treatment process offgases and sewage pumping station wet well offgases). Trickling filter media for use as a biological scrubber. Biological scrubber towers (nitrifying and/or caustic). Covering and venting of structures.


Services - Biosolids Management

The research effort studies if operating conditions such as feed sludge composition, digestion temperature, and sludge retention time can be optimised for improved dewaterability of thermophilically digested biosolids. To manage the sludge that is generated from wastewater treatment units, Opus DaytonKnight incorporates digestion technologies like ATAD and Thermophilic Anaerobic Digestion.



Where there are numerous existing services and/or where relatively deep excavation is required, trenchless construction can provide substantial cost savings. For more information on our capabilities and experience in trenchless technology or other consulting engineering requirements. Site safety is more effectively managed due to localized stationary worksite. Construction impacts are minimized when compared to open-cut construction.



We are especially proud of our efforts to assist our clients with public and regulatory liaison and consultation programs. To view information about some our past projects.
