Three-Chamber Sedimentation Box for determining suspended sediment loads

The Sedimentation Box is used to collect the sediment load of flowing water (active and passive). It was developed for integrative sampling of natural waters and is particularly suitable for environmental examination (or monitoring) over longer periods of time. Furthermore, it can be used to control water quality or monitor technical processes in public water systems, e.g. in sewage treatment plants or pumping stations.

The construction of the device as a three-chamber system allows very light and small suspended matter, including microplastics (<1 g/cm³ and >1 g/cm³) to be separated from flowing waters or industrial processes. Standing waters can be sampled with the help of an external pump. The use of one device in different aquatic systems enables comparability of suspended sediment loads. The Three-Chamber Sedimentation Box thus closes a methodological gap for the systematic determination of the transport and fate of suspended matter in different types of freshwater bodies.

Functional principle

  • Flow through the three-chamber system via inlet and outlet pipes
  • Slowing down of the velocity by widening of the flow cross section
  • Sedimentation of light particles at the lid and heavy particles at the bottom of the tank
