The YSI 3059 flow cell is ideal for use in applications when it is impossible or undesirable to submerge the probe module into the sample.
Installation of the YSI 3059 flow cell is easy. Simply thread the flow cell on to the probe module of the Pro Series dual port assembly, 5563 or the 600 XL/XLM. Once secure, water can be pumped to the flow cell with a user-supplied pump. Water enters through the bottom of the flow cell, and passes through a diffuser plate. The water will leave through an opening at the top of the cell. This design ensures that flow is distributed evenly through the cell, eliminating dead zones of no flow along the sides.
YSI 3059 includes two each of 1/4 in and 3/8 in tube fittings. Tubing and pump not included.

A nutrient monitoring effort throughout a degraded Chesapeake Bay watershed is helping chart the path of nitrate through the system. The monitoring is part of a plan to target federally funded agricultural conservation practices to the places in the watershed that need them most. The Choptank River is among one of the largest tributaries to the Chesapeake Bay, a system plagued by excess nutrients. The Choptank flows across the Delmarva Peninsula, a 170-mile-long piece of land that makes up the bay's eastern shore. More than half of the Choptank's watershed is covered in agricultural land, which is part of the reason the river has been listed as impaired under Clean Water Act standards for nutrients and sediment.Read More
Largely seen as pristine and relatively untouched by human activity thanks to its protected status, the portion of the Colorado River flowing through Grand Canyon National Park is anything but, according to recently published research. This is evidenced by high levels of selenium and mercury found in the fishes there. Scientists from many institutions were involved in the years-long work, full results of which have been published in the journal Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry. It was led by the U.S. Geological Survey, but perhaps the contributors from Idaho State University got the best end of the stick. They were looking into the food webs of the river to evaluate concentrations of selenium and mercury gathering in fish.Read More
For all the straightforward groundwater monitoring applications that the folks at Heron Instruments help with, there are a few that are far from typical. These include projects that take place near remediation sites or not far from waste disposal operations. Realizing that customers working in those sorts of projects are in need of a more robust option, the company has released the dipper-Tough . The new water level meter takes inspiration from Heron’s popular dipper-T , while throwing in a host of improvements that environmental pros working in groundwater can really appreciate.Read More
