Title: AUTOMATIC SEDIMENTATION AND SEPARATION CURVE GENERATOR
Abstract:
Described embodiments relate to a hand-held portable sedimentation measurement device, comprising: a closeable fluid container having a container wall and defining a chamber to receive fluid for sedimentation measurement and defining a central longitudinal axis; multiple light sources disposed along the container and generally parallel to the longitudinal axis to direct light through the wall into the chamber; multiple light sensors disposed along the container arranged to detect light passing through the chamber from at least one of the light sources; a controller configured to control emission of light from the sources and to receive detection signals from the light sensors, wherein sedimentation measurements are derived from the light emitted from the light sources and the detection signals; a communication interface coupled to the controller and arranged to transmit sedimentation data to an external computing device; and a housing connected to the container and housing the controller and interface.
