NON-METALLIC KEMMERER SAMPLERS, TRADE METALS
• All plastic construction
• Clear acrylic or opaque PVC bottle body
• PVC center shaft
• No metal parts to touch your sample
• Silicone seals for trace metal sampling
• Large range of sizes - 1.2 to 8.2 L
This series of Kemmerer bottles has no metal parts to contact your sample. Delrin fasteners and an O ring replace the stainless steel garter spring in the All-Angle™ trip head. The bottle body can be either transparent acrylic, which allows you to view your sample before removal, or opaque PVC for greater durability. The all-plastic center shaft is made of plastic CPVC with a plastic delrin nut on its bottom.
Designed for trace metal sampling due to silicone seals. (Polyurethane, although affordable and durable, is not suitable for trace metal sampling because it leaches mercury and other contaminants). Also may be used for organic sampling to concentrations of mg/L. When running metal, organic, or any other chemical analyses, it is best to run a blank on the sampler prior to use.
The end seals mount like a tire on a hub and are easy to replace. The end seals should not be sealed, seated, or fully closed during storage. Although made of tough elastomers, they have a tendency to take a set during long periods of inactivity and stress. For this reason, store your Kemmerer with the seals slightly open and not touching the bottle body.
This sampler requires a messenger and line (not included, except in kits) for operation. A thermometer can be mounted inside acrylic Kemmerer bottles.
