Details

The Solinst Model 408M Micro Double Valve Pump (Micro DVP) has a remarkably small and flexible design. It is a pneumatic pump similar to a Bladder Pump, but using coaxial Teflon tubing, rather than a Teflon bladder to give high quality samples. It is small enough to fit in 1/2" (13 mm) tubing and all channels of the Solinst Model 403 CMT Systems, as its diameter is only 3/8" (10mm). The unique combination of flexibility and size make the pump easy to transport and install in a variety of applications.

The Micro DVP is ideal for low flow sampling and narrow down-hole applications. Flow rates of 20 to 150ml/min, are obtained, with very small associated purge volumes from within the narrow applications. The Micro DVP is durable and easy to operate using the pre-sets and fine tubing capabilities built into the Solinst Model 466 Electronic Control Unit.

The Micro DVP uses coaxial Teflon tubing in lengths of 50', 100', 150', and 200' (15m, 30m, 50m, and60 m). The 50 ft. (15 m) pump is also available with LDPE outer drive tube and a Teflon inner tube. The pump body and filter is 6 x 3/8" (150x10mm). It is constructed of coaxial Teflon tubing with stainless steel fittings and a 100 mesh stainless steel filter. Filters are easily cleaned and replaced. A manifold at the top end of the pump has a 3/16" (5mm) Teflon sample tube and a quick-connect fitting for easy attachment to the Control Unit. A multi-purge sampling head is also available for use with the CMT System.

Formation water enters through the filter under hydrostatic pressure into both the inner Teflon tube and the annulus of the coaxial tubes. Drive gas/air is cycled down the annular space between the two tubes to close the lower check valve and push the water up the inner sample tube. The pump is then vented to allow new formation water to enter both tubes under hydrostatic pressure. Air/gas pressures are carefully controlled at all times to ensure that the air/water interface never enters the body of the pump. Repeating the pressure/vent cycle brings the high quality sample to the surface at a controlled rate. The Micro DVP operates with 2ft (0.6m) or more head of water above the intake.

Applications include groundwater sampling in:
  • CMT and Waterloo Multilevel Systems
  • Direct-Push/Drive-Points
  • Low flow monitoring in narrow diameters

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.

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.

Ice Fishing With A SondeCAM Underwater Fishing Camera

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.
