With a variety of pore water sampler cup types— aluminum oxide ceramic, silicon carbide, and porous PE-nylon, there is a pore water sampler for anions, cations, metals and heavy metals. Multiple shaft lengths and vacuum systems are available to meet the needs of your installation site.

SK20/SKS20

The SK20 and SKS20 pore water samplers come with an aluminum oxide ceramic and are well suited for sampling anions like nitrate, sulfate, phosphate and chloride, and have limited suitability for testing cations. The ‘S’ version of this water sampler comes with internal shaft storage for water samples.

SIC20/SICS20

The SIC20 and SICS20 are fitted with a silicon carbide suction cup and are well suited for testing anions, cations, and metals. These pore water samplers have limited suitability for heavy metals like cadmium and lead. The ‘S’ version of this water sampler comes with internal shaft storage for water samples.

SPE20/SPES20

The SPE20 and SPES20 are fitted with a porous PE-nylon suction cup and are suitable for all sampling types, but do require conditioning and a forerun flush before sampling cations. The ‘S’ version of this water sampler comes with internal shaft storage for water samples.
