Horizontal Point Water Sampler

pore

  • Thin-layer sampling of:
    • physical (temperature)
    • chemical (dissolved gasses, nutrients, metals)
    • and biological (phytobacterioplankton) data
  • Nonmetalic sample containment
  • Messenger activated horizontal release mechanism is easy to load
  • near bottom water recovery with bottom tripping assembly (optional)
  • horizontal release mechanism:
    • Polyethylene and stainless steel construction
    • simple, spring loaded release pins provides easy sampler loading and surefire operation
    • built-in heavy duty handle
    • single sampler attached to end of line
    • Typical water samplers have three (3) basic characteristics:
      1. Orientation: vertical or horizontal
      2. Cylinder type: clear polycarbonate or opaque PVC
      3. Sampler volume: 2.2, 3.0 and 5.0 liters

    Below is a list of our standard HORIZONTAL Water Samplers:

    • WATER SAMPLER, HORIZONTAL, CLEAR POLYCARBONATE X 2.2 LITERS:
      • Best suited for: general purpose water sampling, near bottom studies, and zooplankton collections.
