Abstract: An attempt has been made to measure suspended particles in the effluent from Sugar factories and distilleries. Waste water generation and its subsequent treatment is major problem for distillery industry and society as well. The effluent is generated in large amount and therefore prior to treatment, the effluent need to be monitored so as to permit their discharge into the local water sources or in a land. The comparison of conventional method used in distillery for the measurement of suspended solid and outcome of experimental procedure used is discussed in this paper. Basically, the incident light source, detection angle of detector, and ratioing are the important aspects which affects on optimization, performance and consistency of the measurement system. These aspects are concentrated mainly for precise measurement. Intensity of light scattered by the sample under defined condition with the intensity of light transmitted by the standard reference suspension under the same condition is studied. The conventional suspended solid measurement requires 4-5 hours where this system may take 4-5 minute. This technique will offer the potential for reliable for distillery industrial process measurement, and to follow the standard environmental norms prescribed by regulatory authority before depriving from distillery column, which would otherwise require for the pretreatment and controlling in the said industry.
