Particle Size Analysis by Hydrometer


The analysis tells you the percentages of Sand, Silt, Clay and soil texture by hydrometer.

Certain plants thrive in specific unbalances as well. Soil can have an unbalanced portion of each type of particle which would affect the soils ability to be optimal for your gardening solution.

What it tests

This soil analysis tells you the percentages of Sand, Silt, Clay and soil texture by hydrometer.

Particle Size: Soil particles size varies greatly because each particle could be sand, silt, or clay and each of the ranges in different diameters. The size of soil particles is important. The amount of open space between the particles influences how easily water moves through soil and how much water the soil will hold. Soil can have an unbalanced portion of each type of particle which would affect the soils ability to be optimal for your gardening solution. Certain plants thrive in specific unbalances as well.

What you get

Upon purchase of this test, you will receive a CARO Kit:

Testing Containers – We fill your testing containers with the correct preservatives and store them at a specific temperature in our CARO Kit. For soil tests, you will receive jars instead of a vial-like container.

Sampling Guidelines – We’ll make sure you know the correct methods of sampling to ensure there aren’t any hiccups in the testing process. Submit 100 to 250 g of soil in a plastic bag (or 1 Kg of soil if sand classification is required).

Chain of Custody – This is a standard laboratory form that must be filled out and shipped back to us with the bottles. It’s used by our staff to make sure we do our job right!

The Report – We will send your report via email and you can access it online if you use our service called ClientConnect. Regulation maximum accepted concentrations are listed as well so you can compare your results.

Does not include sampling safety equipment as what is required depends on various circumstances. Please contact a local environmental consultant if you have questions or concerns about safely sampling. CARO provides testing services only, no sampling services.

 

Does not include Sand Classification by sieve analysis. Sand classification can be added if the sand fraction is >35% and charged separately by contacting CARO directly. Next-day turnaround is available at 100% surcharge.

How it works

After you purchase a kit on our store,

We will ship the CARO Kit to you via express shipping. In the CARO Kit, you’ll receive the sampling containers, a sheet to show you how to sample, as well as a chain of custody form (COC). The COC form is a standard lab procedure to get the correct information from you.

Once you sample, it’s advised to get the samples back to us ASAP. You can do this by getting that CARO Kit to a post office or courier and send it back to one of our locations. Certain tests like Microbiology (found in most drinkability packages) have a sample holding time of only 24 hours, so it’s vital to get the containers in transit right away.

So we’ve received your samples, allow 5 – 7 business days for us to analyze them and produce the reports for you. We will email the report to you when it’s ready. Every result’s turnaround time (TAT) will be started on the delivery of filled bottles back to the laboratory.

Internal rushes are possible for non-micobiology tests. Either use the Turnaround Time add on, or make a custom inquiry via the contact us webpage or on the phone.
