Standard Practice for Sampling of Liquids in Waste Management Activities Using a Peristaltic Pump
|Publication Date:||1 May 2007|
|ICS Code (Pumps):||23.080|
This practice covers the use of a peristaltic pump for sampling liquids from multiple depths. It is applicable for a wide range of fluids including: high-viscosity fluids, aggressive and corrosive fluids, high-purity solutions and abrasive fluids. It is especially useful for sampling liquids that require complete isolation from the pump.
This practice includes the determination of sample depth, pump set up and collecting a sample to be analyzed.
This practice is not intended to give detailed instructions for running a peristaltic pump or recommend which peristaltic pump to purchase. It instructs the field personnel how to connect the pump and collect a sample.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
