Field Test Kits

test kitTest Kits for Field Sampling to Obtain TSS and PSD Results from Dry samples are Sent to the Lab with an Easy-To-Use Portable Kit.


This Reduces or May Eliminate the Need to Send Liquid Samples to the Lab for Analysis.


TSS-The Use of This Test Kit and a Portable Turbidimeter Allow For On-The-Spot Comparisons of an Existing Filter System's Effluent and Feed by Comparing Them Against Liquid Samples Drawn From Sample Ports. The Samples are Forced Through Various Micron Size and Filter Media Discs Supplied With the Kit. Syringes are Employed to Draw and Force the Liquid Samples Through Media Discs. The TSS Discs Are Pre-Weighed and are Dried in a Desiccator/Dryer and Compared to the Current Weight.


PSD-Dried Samples Are Examined By Manual/Computerized Microscopic Particle Counters. Errors From Fluid Bubbles Are Eliminated By Employing Microscopic Analysis

A Calibrated Portable Turbidimeter Can Be Employed as The Fluid Comparison Analyzer.
