For flocculation (jar) tests on water and effluent samples. The SW6 accommodates up to six samples and is specially designed for repeatable conditions between samples and from run to run.
A digital display clearly indicates the speed of the rotational stainless steel paddles, which can be varied from 25 to 250rpm. The digital timer can be set to count down from 1 to 99 minutes. After count down, the paddles stop and an alert sounds. The timer then counts up in minutes in order to measure settling time. Two pre-set programs allow routine speed and time parameters to be input and then selected by simply pressing one button. Parameters are stored in the memory and can be recalled or altered at any time. The intuitive touch sensitive keypad is totally flat for easy cleaning. Sample monitoring is assisted by diffused base illumination and black background.
A simultaneous coagulant doser is available as an accessory.
Built in illumination for easy viewing of samples
Supplied without beakers. ( 6 x 1000ml Tall form required for use)
BioCote anti-microbial coating additive is present on all Stuart brand equipment and offers anti-microbial action to help prevent cross-contamination.
This unique additive is applied during the manufacturing process and contains trace levels of active silver ions which provide an effective anti-microbial action, active against many strains of common bacteria and fungi, including Aspergillus niger, E.coli and Listeria mono.
This coating remains active for the entire product lifespan and can actually help in prolonging the life of products, where a build up of microbes may cause premature material degradation.
BioCote works by inhibiting bacteria in a number of ways including protein damage, cell membrane damage, oxidative damage and DNA interference. Ultimately, the bacteria are prevented from replicating. Without this, bacteria have been shown to die naturally within around 8 hours. BioCote works in a way different to antibiotics so it is currently effective against antibiotic resistant strains.
More recently, BioCote technology was proven effective against particular virus strains, with a reduction of 90% in 2 hours against feline coronavirus, strain Munich. Read more here.
