SediMeter Precision Demonstrated Publicly

On February 1st, 2016, a public demonstration of the SediMeter™ precision was held in Miami, Florida. During the course of the day, people were given a chance to put sand in the tank and see in real time on a connected computer the sediment level the instrument was measuring with a resolution of 0.001 cm (10 µm, equivalent to the thickness of a typical human hair). The instrument never failed to detect the addition of the 2.2 g of sediment, which corresponds to 0.1 mm in the 162 cm2 tank (given a bulk density of the top few centimeters of 1360 kg·m-3). The event was summed up in this video.

The demonstration tank with the SediMeter allowed attendees to compare what happened on the bottom with the SediMeter measurements displayed in real time on the computer screen.
