Horizontal Water Sampler


The KC Horizontal Water Sampler is based on the van Dorn design.

The KC Horizontal Water Sampler is intended for taking water samples near the bottom in lakes, streams, or in stratified water bodies.

It is made of sturdy transparent PVC and has a double releaser, activated by a drop messenger. The releaser is made of stainless steel (AISI 316). The water sampler has a standard thermometer mounted, with a temperature range between - 10 and + 60 degrees C (1 degree indications on the scale). When the 2 PVC end covers are released, they are held together by a rubber strap. The water sampler is made in 2 sizes. All samplers can optionally be equipped with direction fins for stabilisation in flowing water. Dropmessenger is included.
