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.

CastAway Doubts about Conductivity, Depth and Temperature Monitoring

The Sontek CastAway-CTD is a castable device that measures conductivity, temperature and depth. The instrument has been used in the field for over a decade by oceanographers, limnologists, divers, fishers and educators. There have been few changes since the first iteration in 2010, showing that the instrument is durable and accurate without requiring new models.   The CastAway is the first conductivity, temperature and depth (CTD) instrument of its kind. While other CTDs are large and cumbersome to deploy, with cages and isolated sensors, the CastAway is a small, lightweight and easy-to-use instrument. Typical CTDs utilize pumps to ensure water flows over the sensors during deployment.

Dimethyl Sulfide: A Key to Marine Sulfur Biogeochemistry

Christopher Spiese is assistant dean at the Getty College of Arts & Sciences, acting director of the school of social sciences and human interaction, and associate professor of chemistry at Ohio Northern University. He is also a marine sulfur enthusiast. Marine sulfur biogeochemistry, which involves the cycling of sulfur through aquatic biological and geological systems, is essential for the functioning of marine life. However, the exact chemistry involved is not entirely known, piquing the interest of researchers like Spiese. “I went into marine sulfur biogeochemistry during my graduate work. I completed a doctoral environmental chemistry program at SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF) under David Kieber.
