Bare Bones Treatability Testing

Sometimes simple is all you need.  Bare Bones treatability tests are simplified versions of PRIMA’s traditional treatability tests.  Each Bare Bones test is designed to address a very specific question at a much lower cost than a more detailed study.  Bare Bones tests are ideal for situations in which you need a yes/no answer or confirmation of an expected result.  For more information about Bare Bones testing, please review the Bare Bones FAQs or contact us.

 

Bare Bones Cr(VI) Formation Potential

  • Purpose - To determine whether exposure of soil to a specified oxidant can generate Cr(VI).
  • Procedure - Set two reactors – one with oxidant, one without.  Measure Cr(VI)* after 7 days.
  • Cost - Contact us for quote.  Please specify oxidant to be used.

*Dissolved Cr rather than Cr(VI) is measured if the oxidant is KMnO4.

 

Bare Bones Metals Mobilization Potential

  • Purpose - To determine whether arsenic or metals can be leached from soil by a specified remediation technology.
  • Procedure - Set two reactors – one with specified technology, one without.  Measure specified metals after 7 days for chemical treatments, after 28 days for anaerobic biological treatments
  • Cost - Contact us for quote.  Please specify the technology to be used and metals of interest.

 

Bare Bones COC Destruction Confirmation*

  • Purpose - To determine whether a specific COC can be destroyed as expected.
  • Procedure - Set two reactors – one with specified treatment technology, one without.  Measure COCs after 7-28 days, depending upon technology of interest.
  • Cost - Contact us for quote.  Please specify the technology to be used and COCs to be evaluated.

*  Recommended for proof of concept only.
