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.
Following water level declines in lakes around the Twin Cities area of Minnesota, scientists at the U.S. Geological Survey were interested in identifying the cause. What they found along with that was a large degree of variability between the lakes, based on geology, elevation and land use. That there was such variation isn’t too surprising, as Mother Nature is far from neat in laying things out. But the sheer size and scope of the study has a nice way of underscoring just how different individual lakes can be from one another even if they sit nearby. The effort, looking at 96 different lakes around Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minn., found wide variation in water levels over time. Some lakes gained in water levels while others nearby saw them decline.Read More
Researchers with the University of California (UC), Irvine, and NASA have completed a pair of studies documenting the pace of glacier melt in West Antarctica. Their findings show that the melting there is occurring at a rate never before observed. The studies examined three neighboring glaciers that are melting and retreating at different rates. The Smith, Pope and Kohler glaciers flow into the Dotson and Crosson ice shelves in the Amundsen Sea embayment in West Antarctica, the part of the continent with the largest decline in ice. One, led by a UC Irvine researcher, looked at satellite records in its approach.Read More
Microscopic beads and fabrics float in our waterways, get ingested by fish and other creatures, and impact the environment in lots of negative ways. But despite that knowledge, there is little we know about how these microplastics first enter aquatic food webs. In a pilot study, researchers at the University of Notre Dame are studying the dynamics of just how microscopic plastics are first transferred from filter feeders to fish. Their investigation is using asian clams and sculpins to pinpoint the interactions underway. The researchers originally wanted to use round gobies, a prolific invasive fish in Lake Erie.Read More
