A Sediment Data Processing Template for Malvern Laser Particle Size Analyzer
Abstract: Malvern laser particle size analyzer has been applied in the particle analysis of river sediments since the beginning of this century, and has been highly praised by users for simple operation, stable data from analysis, high automation of processing and quick achievements, etc. regardless of its significant deviation from the principles of traditional sedimentation analysis approach. Now, it has been applied and popularized in the particle analysis of river sediments. Nevertheless, users may run into some problems in the use of this equipment, such as, inconvenient setting and check of fundamental parameters, lack of automatic detection and warning about quality of test data, troublesome selection of characteristic and extreme values in the data of tested particle grading, inconsistent form of analysis report, and cumber-some reading and output of data, etc. To solve these problems and unify the principles and requirements for operation of laser analyzer at the sediment monitoring stations, a “sediment data processing template for Malvern laser particle size analyzer” is developed while making full use of the existing functions of laser analyzer. This template is able to configure the fundamental parameters automatically, check the quality of analytic data and give warnings, print the reports in standard form according to the code of each monitoring station, and generate the textual output of analytic data in batches, etc., which can be directly sorted out and edited in the Southern Hydrological Data Processing (SHDP) software. The operation for several years has achieved favorable effects, improved working efficiency, reduced error rate and ensured the quality of achievements.
