Global Water's SP200 variable speed portable peristaltic pump sampler is ideal for removing samples from shallow wells and surface water, including lakes, ponds, and holding pools.
The SP200 variable speed portable peristaltic pump sampler is ideal for sample removal from shallow wells and surface water, including lakes, ponds, and holding pools. The water sampler is lightweight, rugged, easy to use, weather resistant, and requires minimal maintenance. The peristaltic pump is designed to take a manual sample and has the ability to back flush the sample hose once you are finished taking the sample.
The water sampler operates using an external 12 volt DC power source that can supply at least 2 A continuous. The variable speed motor is reversible and can sample at any speed from a trickle up to 500 ml per minute. A power cord, 10 ft (3.05 m) long, is included with each variable speed peristaltic pump sampler. The power cord is fitted with alligator clips for easy connection to almost any 12 volt DC battery, such as a car battery or a small 12V, 5 AH gel cell.
To provide high sample integrity, the water sample only contacts the norprene and polyethylene tubing. The tubing is easily cleaned or replaced. To avoid cross contamination or lengthy decontamination procedures simply change the inexpensive tubing between samples.

What does "minimal maintenance" mean?
The SP200 sampler is rain resistant and rugged making the only required maintenance a wipe down of the carrying case and routinely rinsing the pickup hose and debris strainer with mild soap and water.
What is the max flow rate?
The max flow at 4 ft. head is 500m per minute.
A complex series of locks and dams up and down the Ohio River enable interstate commerce, travel and recreation by maintaining a usable pathway for watercraft, but come with the inevitable byproducts of disrupting the river’s natural systems. To combat this, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers uses a complex monitoring and response technology designed to minimize the negative impacts of dredging on the river ecosystem. Steven Foster, a limnologist with the Corps Water Quality Team, works at the Robert C. Byrd Lock and Dam in Gallipolis Ferry, West Virginia. He said one key area he focuses on is the welfare of mussels in the river. River dredging can smother mussel beds, so Foster and the team of engineers monitor the beds to ensure their safety.Read More
While the scientific community has formed its consensus on how ice sheets are shrinking in and around Greenland, some researchers are tracking what happens to the meltwater as it drains into the ocean each summer. Their study, published in Nature Geoscience by an interdisciplinary team of biologists, oceanographers and hydrologists, used computer models to simulate the meltwater to see where currents take it and what effect it could have on the ocean. Renato Castelao, one of the researchers and an associate professor of marine science for the University of Georgia, said one of the biggest discoveries of the study was the surprising final destinations of the ice sheets as they melt into the ocean each summer.Read More
Thinking of hitting the ice with a SondeCAM underwater fishing camera? Due to its rugged design, you won't have to worry about it handling the harsh elements. However there are a few simple tricks to get the most out of a FishSens SondeCAM while ice fishing. You won't have to do anything to modify the SondeCAM itself, but you are going to have to bring a few extra things. Most importantly we are going to need a power source. Unless you are hauling your gear with a truck, you'll want something more portable than the battery you used in the boat. Pick up an inexpensive and maintenance-free 12-volt, 9-amp battery. It is going to provide plenty of power, but will be much lighter and take up less space.Read More
