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. The sampler is made of a sturdy transparent acrylic tube and has a double releaser, activated by a drop messenger. The release system is manufactured from AISI 316 stainless steel.
All Van Dorn models have been designed for better performance and the steering fins are integrated into the sampler, ensuring a better stabilization in flowing water.The water sampler comes in 3 sizes, 2 – 3 or 5 litres, and is deployed on a Ø5mm line
