Insert the irrigator tube into the cylinder and rinse fabric from the interior floor because it is reduced. strength the irrigator during the fabric to the ground of the cylinder by means of utilising a steady stabbing and twisting motion, whereas the operating answer flows from the irrigator tip. This motion flushes the high quality debris into the suspension above the coarser sand sizes. proceed this irrigation technique till the cylinder is stuffed to the 381-mm (15-inch) mark. five. bring up the irrigator slowly with out shutting off the movement in order that the liquid point is maintained at approximately 381 mm (15 inches) whereas the irrigator is being withdrawn. control the stream earlier than the irrigation is totally withdrawn and regulate the ultimate point to 381 mm (15 inches). 6.
