Capillary Suction Time. Operational Control Tests for Wastewater Treatment Facilities. Instructor's Manual [and] Student Workbook.
Wooley, John F.
Capillary suction time is time required for the liquid phase of a treated sludge to travel through 1 centimeter of media (blotter or filter paper). Designed for individuals who have completed National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) level 1 laboratory training skills, this module provides waste water treatment plant operators with the basic skills and information needed to: (1) run the capillary suction time test; (2) accurately record data and observations; (3) organize data to make required interpretations as to the general quality of the sludge utilized in the test; and (4) obtain reliable, consistent results from the test procedure. The instructor's manual contains a statement of instructional goals, lists of instructor/student activities and instructional materials, and student worksheet (with answers). The student workbook contains objectives, prerequisite skills needed before the module is started, laboratory procedures to determine capillary suction time, and worksheet. (Author/JN)
