Use vertical bottles in mildly corrosive water, marine water and water with large amounts of suspended solids or adhesive colloidal solids to collect plankton and floating sediments. The wide mouth collects a true water sample with no contamination from other water levels. During descent, the open mouth does not restrict water flow. This makes them particularly suitable for collecting plankton, floating sediments and for use where metallic ion avoidance is desirable. Your choice of transparent acrylic or more durable opaque PVC.
Alpha samplers are not suitable for trace metal analysis due to the potential for contamination (i.e. mercury and phosphorus) by the materials in the sampler’s end seals. For trace metal analysis, choose our Beta Bottle water samplers.
A thermometer can be mounted inside acrylic Alpha™ bottles.
NOTE: Volume may vary slightly. It is recommended that you verify the exact volume of your bottle prior to use.
