These stainless steel bladder pumps are used for purging and taking samples in monitoring wells. The teflon bladder in the pump prevents contact between the sample water and compressed air. These pumps are supplied with a pneumatic regulator and tubes. The regulator restricts the delivery during purging and sampling, which keeps the turbidity low (low flow purging/sampling). This technique is attracting increasing interest world wide (with the coming NEN 5744-2008, this technique will become compulsory for all sampling carried out in the Netherlands).

Fully adjustable automatic pneumatic regulator with built-in compressor;
Maximum pressure head lift: 60 m.
Exchangeable teflon membrane
Must be submerged completely
Not tested spark proof
Purging and taking samples (incl. in-line filtration) in Ø 25 mm monitoring wells to depths of 60 m.
