Hi,
I was wondering if when testing for silt content (250ml measuring cylinder with 100ml sand made up to 150ml with 1% NaCl H2O) in a sand sample over a period of 3 hrs if you were to add Floculant (e.g. FLOPAM) at 1% to the sand solution would the result be the same over a shorter period of time? If so, what would the min & max of Floculant be to obtain the same results over what periods of time?
Hope this isn’t too all over the place.
Many Thanks
Pauline
