Technicians responsible for municipal or industrial wastewater treatment systems will find that the new Aqua Series of Portable Wastewater Samplers from Electro Chemical Devices (ECD) provides them with a choice of accurate, reliable samplers designed for convenience and with multiple applications in mind.

Municipal and industrial wastewater treatment systems are frequently large and complex, which makes it impractical to place fixed analysers everywhere they might be desirable to ensure water effluent quality. The reality of this situation becomes especially clear when equipment is malfunctioning in remote areas and analysis needs to be done to resolve unforeseen problems. That’s where portable samplers prove themselves to be invaluable.

ECD’s new Aqua Series of portable wastewater samplers consists of three models designed to meet a wide range of sampling requirements. The very small Aqua-Compact, the passively-cooled Aqua-Coolbox and the versatile multi-bottle Aqua-Multix provide plant technicians with total sampling flexibility.

The Aqua-Compact is ideal when samples need to be pulled and transported between sites or for temporary compliance purposes. The Aqua-Coolbox with its passively cooled insulation ensures samples are stored at a cool temperature for proper lab analysis. The Aqua-Multix features multiple bottles with a quick “lift-off” design for bottle exchange.

The Aqua Samplers feature an advanced air pump vacuum sampling system, which delivers an extremely accurate, reliable, representative and repeatable sample. This design eliminates the problems than can exist with other types of sampling techniques.

As with stationary style samplers, the Aqua Samplers support the extraction of samples from either non-pressurized or pressurized effluent pipe sources. The pressurized pipeline interface accessory is optional and available at a modest cost.

Programming set-up and daily operation of the Aqua Samplers has been designed to be as simple and intuitive as possible for the user. Sample extraction can be time based or triggered by external sources such as flow meters, level sensors, pH meters, PLC’s etc.

The Aqua Samplers can be supplied with a sample temperature monitoring module. With this option the minimum, maximum, average and present sample temperatures can be monitored and displayed. Additionally all Aqua Samplers can be configured with data logging for downloads to a PC or other devices via the USB connection.

Aqua Samplers come with a choice of power options. y can be AC powered: 110, 220 or 230 VAC. y are available with an external 12 VDC power supply or can be powered via an integral battery that can provide up to 350 samples on a full charge.

Designed for demanding environments, the Aqua Samplers feature a rugged IP55 rating. They are suitable for use in temperatures from 14 to 122°F (-10 to 50°C).
