Alpha Water Sampler, 4.2 L, Horizontal, Opaque PVC
Product Code #1140-H45
Intended for shallow or deep waters, these bottles are called horizontal because they descend, parallel to the bottom. They are pulled sideways just before closing by the operator. This ensures a representative water sample for that specific depth. They are ideal for sampling at the thermocline, at other stratification levels, or just above the bottom sediments.
• Blue seals of durable, flexible, high-grade polyurethane resin with attached safety line
• Foolproof 316 SS trip head for durability
• Not suitable for chemical sampling
4.2 Litre Capacity
SBK2 messenger & 62-C15 line (100 ft.) are sold separately.
The PVC body is opaque, but is more durable and less expensive than acrylic. Alpha samplers are not suitable for chemical analysis of contents due to the potential for contamination (i.e. by mercury and phosphorus) by the materials in the sampler's construction. For chemical analysis, inquire about the Beta or suggested Kemmerer water samplers. This sampler requires a messenger and line (not included, except in kits) for operation. A thermometer can be mounted inside acrylic Alpha™ bottles.
