The Palintest Sewage Effluent kit provides a simple means of checking the quality of sewage effluents. It is used extensively for control testing at small sewage works. Based on simplified methods of sewage effluent testing, the kit contains tests for the essential quality control checks required for the day-to-day operation of sewage effluent treatment plants.
Increasing attention is being paid to the quality of sewage effluents. This is coupled with the imposition of more stringent quality standards. It is important that the condition of sewage effluent discharges be checked to ensure they conform to consent limits. Similarly, the importance of regular testing by sewage works operators as a check on the efficiency of the works is widely recognised.
Palintest Sewage Effluent tests have been developed to meet this need. Each of the tests is performed simply without the use of complicated equipment and are suitable without formal training in water testing and analysis.
Palintest Sewage Effluent tests are based on those recommended by the Department of the Environment and the Water Research Centre, and accord generally with the methods laid down in “Analysis of Raw, Potable and Waste Waters”, published by ‘The Stationery Office’.
