Missed samples and failures can lead to loss of data in reports, overtime for grabbing additional samples and even compliance issues.
Vacuum pump water sampling technology offers a significant improvement over peristaltic pump technology for water sampling.
Reliable Wastewater Effluent Sampling
The Problem with Peristaltic Samplers
Peristaltic type outdoor water samplers have traditionally had peristaltic pump tubing failure or peristaltic pump roller failures. The second most frequent issue encountered with outdoor samplers are refrigerator failures. This particular municipal wastewater plant in Ohio had experienced multiple water sampler failures in the past and was looking for something simple and more reliable.
The Solution with Vacuum Based Wastewater Effluent Samplers
These BVS 4300C water samplers from Aqua Technology Group and Campbell Scientific replaced the failed ISCO Automatic Water Sampler units at a wastewater plant in Ohio. This water reclamation facility really wanted a more reliable sampler for wastewater influent and wastewater effluent. The Campbell Scientific BVS4300C Stationary Automatic Water Sampler was the wastewater sampler of choice. The reliability of vacuum wastewater samplers along with the reduced maintenance was the real determining factor.The BVS4300C provided the stationary automatic wastewater sampler needed in a outdoor heavy duty package.
Why Go With Vacuum technology to replace the Peristaltic ISCO sampler?
Vacuum Samplers have clear technology benefits over peristaltic pump samplers
- Higher Accuracy and Consistent Sample Volumes
- Rapid Transport velocities = more-representative samples
- Less disturbance of sample
- No roller contact with tubing = less-frequent maintenance
- Cross contamination of the samples are greatly reduced by a positive pre and post purge
