Title
(EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR SEPARATING PARTICULATE MATTER FROM A LIQUID SPECIMEN
(FR) PROCEDE ET DISPOSITIF SERVANT A SEPARER DES PARTICULES DE MATIERE DEPUIS UN SPECIMEN DE LIQUIDE
Abstract
(EN) The invention is an apparatus and method for separating particulate matter from a fluid, wherein the apparatus includes a collection container, a porous arrangement positioned in a housing and suitable for collecting particulate matter in the liquid on a collection side, and a pump. The housing includes a first portion having elements that improve fluid flow through the housing and elements that decrease the porous arrangement retention characteristics of the portion. The housing also includes a portion having elements that increase the porous arrangement retention characteristics of the portion.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif et un procédé servant à séparer des particules de matière et un spécimen de liquide. Ce dispositif comprend un réservoir collecteur, un ensemble poreux placé dans un boîtier et conçu pour recueillir des particules de matière situées dans le liquide sur une zone collectrice, ainsi qu'une pompe. Ce boîtier comporte une première partie pourvue d'éléments améliorant l'écoulement du liquide à travers le boîtier et des éléments diminuant les caractéristiques de retenue de l'ensemble poreux de ladite partie. Ce boîtier comprend également une partie possédant des éléments augmentant les caractéristiques de retenue de l'ensemble poreux de ladite partie.
