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.

Data Buoys Study Turbid Water Environments in Lake Erie Basin

What started as a study into a relatively unexamined type of cyanobacteria has turned biologists from Bowling Green State University into an integral part of the effort to monitor and protect the drinking water in Sandusky, Ohio. Dr. George Bullerjahn, the Professor of Research Excellence at Bowling Green State University, has done considerable work in the study of beneficial cyanobacterial organisms in the eastern and central basins of Lake Erie. His current project is focused on the growth of the toxic cyanobacterium Planktothrix in Sandusky Bay. Over the course of his career Bullerjahn has collaborated with Dr. Steven Wilhelm from the University of Tennessee.

Bottom Composition Matters, Underwater Cameras Can Help

As a pro angler, I use my Lowrance electronics every single time I am on the water. They are great at locating fish and structure, but when combined with my FishSens SondeCAM HD Underwater Camera they can show everything. A camera is a great tool for someone who wants to better understand what they are seeing on their electronics and for me, it helps get a clear picture of one of the most important things in bass fishing: bottom composition. Hard Spots Hard bottoms are usually the best, and bass will relate to hard bottoms of different types depending on the region. My Lowrance StructureScan will show hard bottoms as bright, white areas on the screen where softer bottoms will be more grayish.
