Waste Acquisition and Spatial Sampling Process
What is WASSP?
Another example of Petritek Invents.
Obtaining spatially significant samples from oily waste ponds or tailings ponds is often challenging or dangerous.
The WASSP, utilised to obtain 3D spatially significant samples from hard, soft, liquid, silt etc ponds without the need for costly or hazardous excursions over the tails or waste ponds. This purpose designed, crane mounted sampling apparatus is intended for sampling of large waste and tails ponds that may not be readily accessible by other means.Coupled with a variable depth gauge (as required) this allows samples to be taken at a variety of different locations and depths and that depth of sample to be accurately known.
The assembley design minimises the potential of ‘punching’ through the bottom lining of a pond, tails facility etc... providing a level of environmental safety and surety of maintaining the asset' integrity . Operators can be confident of obtaining samples from a variety of matrices with an accuracy of depth measurement
Question: When assessing the treatment or disposal of waste ponds or tailings, what confidence do you have that you have all of the required information to do so?
Answer: Whether to safeguard personnel or to meet regulatory compliance for safety and environmental considerations, knowing the composition of questionable materials and how they have interacted throughout your waste facility is essential.
From initial client discussion on site these questions were asked, Petritek invented the answer.
