The sand used in Infiltrator's Advanced Enviro-Septic® and ATL treatment fields requires a widely available coarse clean sand. A lab must often test this material to ensure it meets specific requirements. This is known as a sieve analysis or particle distribution test. How a sieve analysis is performed will be described. This webinar will provide installers with a basic understanding of the information found in a particle distribution report and allow them to determine if a material is suitable for use in our systems. ASTM C-33 is the national standard used for testing fine aggregate, so a general understanding of its requirements will be presented. The Spec-Check®, is an inexpensive device sold by Presby Environmental that allows installers to field test sand themselves, will also be discussed.
