Water is vitally important to every aspect of life. We have a vast network of branching rivers, swamps, lakes, etc. and each body of water can contain dramatically different levels of pollution. Measuring water quality is not an easy task, especially as increasing environmental concerns and regulations have heightened the need for increased diligence and tighter restrictions on water quality.
Scientists are continuously testing to determine what effects contamination is having on receiving waters and their associated aquatic life. Peristaltic pumps are often employed as samplers, in order to prevent cross-contamination, as the only part of the pump to come in contact with the water is the interior of the tubing itself. Tygon® SPT-60 L tubing was specifically designed for automatic water samplers, offering sample integrity along with accurate dosing and performance at high lift.
