Vertical Point Water Sampler

vertical water sampler

  • General purpose water sampling of:
    • physical (temperature)
    • chemical (dissolved gasses, nutrients, metals)
    • and biological (photozooplankton) data
  • Freeflushing, non-metalic sample containment
  • Simple, sure-fire vertical release mechanism
  • multiple samplers on a single wire can be deployed for serial ("inseries") collection of water at various depths
  • 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 VERTICAL Water Samplers:
