JAR TESTER / FLOCCULATOR
4G Platypus Jar Testers feature unique design elements:
Lightweight, durable body
Easy to clean, ABS corrosion resistant materials, Weight: 12kg.
Four independent stations with independent/sequential speed/time
settings for three (3) mix/flocculation stages.
Last RPM and TIME memory.
Actual paddle speed controlled by P+I controllers tied-back to
Hall Effect speed sensors.
Tactile, membrane style Decals
Keypads at each Jar station - to set mix/flocculation speed,
duration and control mode for each stage.
Status, mode selection and error LED indicators.
Warranty: 2 years
Reduced operational noise
Rubber power transmission belts at paddle shaft gearboxes.
Each station includes a 14mm 3 digit numeric LED display for RPM set/actual speed readout and
a 14mm 4-digit clock LED display for stage time set/time elapsed.
Ice white backlighting to observe floc development, settling rates and supernatant clarity.
1L2 or 2L2 capacity options.
Square jar geometry for emulation of plant conditions.
Durable, clear polycarbonate material - easy to clean wall and floor corner fillets.
Anti-slip top lips for safe handling in wet environments.
Clip-on/off, easy-to deg. Clean radial and axial flow types offer a wide range
of mix/flocculation velocity gradients.

Test Accessories - sold separately (Assembly Part No. 4GSAT).
Assess best practice design and management of DAF - with Platypus 4G DAF Test Accessories
DAF clarification process uses micro bubbles to attach and float flocculated and suspended particles, including slow settling colloids, algae, hydroxides, and turbidity generally - to a treatment plant's water surface for ultimate removal.
DAF Test Accessories are used in conjunction with standard Jar Testing - to assess and determine appropriate DAF process parameters including air saturation pressure, recycle rates, DAF treatability, float cohesion, appropriate polymers and appropriate flotation surface loading rates.
The above illustration depicts 4 x DAF Jars in place at a 4G Platypus Jar Tester, a distribution manifold with quarter turn isolating valves, a Saturator assembly and connection tubing.
