Jar-Test is a pilot scale test of chemicals used in a water treatment plant. This test simulates the coagulation process / flocculação, assisting the operator in determining the right amount of treatment chemicals and, like this, improving station performance.

Jar-Test allows you to adjust the amount of chemicals and the sequence in which they are added. The sample needs to be shaken so that the formation, development and sedimentation of the flake can be observed under the same conditions as they would occur in the full scale treatment plant. The operator can then perform a series of tests to compare the effects of different amounts of flocculating agents at different pH values ​​to determine the correct flake size..
