Thin-layer and near-bottom sampling of:

  • Physical (temperature)
  • Chemical (dissolved gasses, nutrients, metals)
  • Biological (phyto-bacterio-zoo-icthyo-plankton)
  • Nonmetallic water sample containment
  • Messenger actuated horizontal release mechanism is simple and easy to arm
  • Simple, spring-loaded release pins provide surefire operation; built-in heavy-duty handle
  • Clear polycarbonate water samplers allow users to see water sample before subsampling; clear samplers are useful when targeting evasive zooplankton
  • Opaque PVC water samplers are primarily used to collect phytoplankton without “shock inhibition”
  • Ultra-clean Polyethylene and silicone and stainless steel construction
  • Standard sampler volumes (l) 1.2, 2.2 and 5.0 liter
  • Heavy-duty Latex band internal closure with fail-safe back-up cord; fully-adjustable and easy to replace (see water sampler spare parts and accessories)
  • Single sampler attached to end of line; 20 m of line included with standard kits
  • 1 kg Ballast weight with lifting eye allows attachment of additional weight for sampling deep water in strong currents
  • Alternatively, deploy Horizontal Water Sampler off a bridge in flowing water with “toggle release” feature; A sharp-tug on the towline actuates sampler closure without a messenger
