You can only do so much with poor
tools. This kit gives you the tools that pro's used to evaluate the
polymers. If you've been to the Centrifuges School, you know that
all of those buzz words the polymer vendor uses are impossible to
prove. Next time, as you vendor how do you measure Molecular
weight, Cationic Strength, Active content, Cross linking. The
answer will be you can't. So what are you buying?
buying a polymer just like the polymer you field tested.
When it doesn't work so well, how
do you determine if the problem is the sludge or the polymer? You
do a jar test! It's not hard, but you have to assemble the tools,
and settle on a testing method. Here it is in one easy to use
The method is quite simple. Use
the syringe to inject polymer solution into a sample of the sludge
in the same ratio as is going into the centrifuge (or whatever).
Pour back and forth between two beakers 12 times to develop the floc,
and dump the flocculated sludge into the funnel. The screen retains
the solids, and the free liquid drains into the beaker on the
scale. After a minute or two, read the weight of the free water on
the scale. In general, the more free water that drains off, the
better the polymer reacts with the sludge.
The 45 page illustrated
instruction book gives you step by stem directions in making up test
samples, and comparing the results.
