Every Sedimate is supplied with a number of Field Sample bottles and is ready to use straight out of the box. The Field Sample bottles fit tightly into Sedimate and are flat-sided to minimise distortion. Using Sedimate to gauge discharge water quality takes mere seconds and couldn’t be easier. Below is the simple step-by-step guide to using Sedimate.
To ensure the best reliability, particularly when compiling a compliance record of Field Sample collections, it is advisable to always collect the Field Sample in the same location. Even water containing treatment chemicals can be gauged using Sedimate.
The only consideration when collecting a Field Sample, aside from Health and Safety of course, is that the Sample is collected as close as possible to the discharge point from the established treatment system (floating decant, perforated snorkel, spillway etc.).
Health and safety is of paramount importance; appropriate safety measures must be employed when collecting the Calibration Sample.
