SEDIMENT AND SLUDGE ANALYSIS

SEDIMENT AND SLUDGE ANALYSIS

SEDIMENT AND SLUDGE ANALYSIS

It is important to understand potential stratification in solids concentrations relative to depth in pond sludge when estimating volumes for removal.  This stratification is also a valuable metric to monitor during various stages of a Bioaugmentation Program such as AMD.

Sediment can sometimes be found to lie in layers of varying states of decay, colour, compaction and biological activity. Parklink has the knowledge and equipment to monitor the progress of the sediment hydration both before and during a Bioaugmentation Program.

We work to strict industry processes and procedures when collecting samples for scientific analysis and where necessary, testing is carried out by approved IANZ accredited laboratories.

GRAPHING AND REPORTING

GRAPHING AND REPORTING

Accurate and meaningful graphing and reporting is essential to understanding sediment patterning. At Parklink we use topographical modelling software and Excel-based calculating software to calculate volumes of sludge and dry mass.

Sludge samples can be collected at any depth without any interference or contamination to the test site.
