Details

The Solinst Model 408 stainless steel double valve pump (DVP) is a pneumatic drive pump that allows consistent, high quality samples. It has been field proven in thousands of applications. It offers excellent performance and reliability. No bladder replacement is required, and the Double Valve Pump provides higher pumping rates than with the Solinst Integra Bladder Pump. There is a selection of sizes and materials, variable flow rates, and it is field serviceable.

The DVP is suitable for low flow or regular flow sampling. The stainless steel pumps can operate to depths of 500 ft (150 m) and the PVC Double Valve Pump can operate to depths of 100 ft (30 m). Everything is easily accessible; replaceable and with interchangeable parts. All components can be cleaned with mild detergent or non-phosphate soap. Pumps are not damaged by operation in sediment laden water, or in dry pumping conditions.

When the pump is placed in a well or borehole, water rises inside the pump and the tubing to static level. Gas supplied from the Controller pushes down on the water column contained in the drive line tubing, closing the check valve at the base of the pump. This forces water up the sample line tubing.

A vent period, during which the gas is released, allows hydrostatic pressure to refill the pump and drive line with sample water. The top check valve prevents water in the sample line from falling back into the pump body. This pressurization and vent cycle is repeated to bring water to the surface.

For proper collection of volatiles, the pressure applied must never be high enough, nor the drive period long enough, to enable gas to enter the body of the pump and aerate the sample. If operated properly, air will never come in contact with the sample water, which produces high quality VOC samples comparable to those of a bladder pump.

Flow rates vary with depth of pump below surface, depth below water level, size of drive and sample tubing, drive and vent cycle times, gas pressure applied, aquifer recharge, and size of pump body.

Solinst groundwater samplers: Versatile options for a variety of applications

Groundwater sampling can be a challenging task that requires different tools for different applications. Solinst groundwater samplers offer the capability to obtain commonly needed representative samples of groundwater using different approaches of water withdrawal. Solinst’s 425 Discrete Interval Sampler uses passive sampling to grab water from a specific depth. The 407 Bladder Pump enables continuous airtight low flow sampling.  The 408 Double Valve Pump can continuously sample at variable rates. “One sampler isn’t necessarily going to be for every site,” said Randy Blackburn, Solinst product manager. Each has different means of fluid sampling. The 425 sampler relies on a manual air pump that pressurizes the sampler based on the water depth.

Army Corps of Engineers Protects River Wildlife

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.

Researchers Track Glacial Meltwater On Its Surprising Journey

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.
