    Significance and Use

    5.1 This practice describes the maximum transit-rate ratios and depths that can be used for selected isokinetic suspended-sediment sampler/nozzle/container configurations in order to insure isokinetic sampling.

    5.2 This practice is designed to be used by field personnel collecting whole-water samples from open channel flow.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice covers the maximum transit-rate ratios and depths for selected suspended-sediment sampler-nozzle-container configurations.

    1.2 This practice explains the reasons for limiting the transit-rate ratio and depths that suspended-sediment samplers can be correctly used.

    1.3 This practice give maximum transit-rate ratios and depths for selected isokinetic suspended-sediment sampler/nozzle/container size for samplers developed by the Federal Interagency Sedimentation Project.

    1.4 Throughout this practice, a samplers lowering rate is assumed to be equal to its raising rate.

    1.5 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

    1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
