YSI 3059 Flow Cell
- YSI 3059 is designed for low-flow purging and sampling in groundwater monitoring wells or very shallow water
- Compatible with YSI Pro Series, 556, 600XL, & 600XLM multi-parameter instruments
- Accommodates both 1/4" and 3/8" tube fittings
|603059||3059 flow cell, 203mL|
|Usually ships in 3-5 days|
|603078||3078 flow cell adapter, single port|
|Usually ships in 3-5 days|
|603056||3056 flow cell mounting spike|
|603088||Replacement O-ring for flow cell tube, Models 3059, 3076 & 3077 (two required)|
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
As we hear more and more about algal blooms of different kinds across the United States, teams of scientists are working hard to ensure that they don't become our new normal. One project in Florida is taking a multi-disciplinary approach to the problem—including genetic analysis.
The team's work is part of a full-court press in Florida recently, making a serious push to understand what is triggering more frequent blooms. Jose Lopez, Ph.D. , of Nova Southeastern University , the primary investigator on the genetic analysis portion of the project, spoke to EM about the project and his work on it.
“This is a very good project,” explains Dr. Lopez. “We're excited about it, and it's a lesson in persistence.”
From extreme weather such as Hurricane Harvey to spills and other accidents, the Gulf Coast of Texas is no stranger to dangerous situations. This is where the data provided by the Texas Automated Buoy System ( TABS ) comes into the picture.
Among the nation's most successful and longest-running coastal ocean-observing systems at the state level, the TABS real-time oceanographic buoy system monitors currents, waves, salinity, winds, and other parameters. Dr. Anthony Knap , director of Geochemical Environmental Research Group (GERG) and a Professor of Oceanography at Texas A&;M University, spoke to EM about working with TABS.
“TABS has been running now for 24 years,” explains Dr. Knap.Read More
