Yalesville, CT 06492

Attention of: Mr. James Bransfield

MATERIAL TESTED

One (1) sample of a polypropylene septic tank baffle

TEST PERFORMED

Determination of Load vs. Separation of Baffle from inner surface of the septic tank wall.

TEST PROCEDURE

The indicated baffle was mounted to a section of a steel septic tank wall, located 10-1/2" above the outlet opening and 18-1/2" below the liquid level of the tank. Test loads, in half pound increments were applied to the lower end of the baffle using a Chatillon Push/Pull Gauge and measurements of the separation of the baffle from the tank wall surface were measured using a Mitutoya Gap Gauge.
