Below are some of the tools available through our
program. Equipment is very important in restoration projects. They can
help you determine if restoration is successful.
4' high, 12' long, ¼" mesh, 36 lb.heavy duty white nylon net includes
a weighted bottom line and buoyed top line. The net is designed to
collect aquatic organisms inhabiting natural waters from the shoreline
to 3' depths. This heavy duty seine net is the perfect sampling tool for
fish surveys and educational purposes.
This 1 x 1 meter square, 500 micron, white mesh net is designed to meet
the requirements of groups performing USEPA Rapid Bioassessment Protocols
for benthic invertebrates. Features hemmed sides for poles and reinforced
bottom seam for anchoring.
Cone-shaped nets of 10 mesh, 153 micron nylon cloth. Minute plankton are collected and can be observed in
the removable, clear conical graduated tube attached at
the end of the net. Two tubes are provided. The net mouth
is braced by a sturdy stainless steel ring and harness.
(CHEMICAL AND PHYSICAL PROPERTIES)
Used to determine turbidity or degree of visibility in natural waters.
The weighted 20 cm diameter disk has a braided stretch-resistant line that
is marked every half meter and at every meter up to 20 meters.
A precision, NON-MERCURY thermometer, furnished in a protective plastic
jacket with window opening. Engraved graduations on white tubing
increase readability over the full range of –5° to 45°C in 0.5°
Collects samples representative of specific depths. Ideal for the collection
of dissolved oxygen samples. Simply lower to sampling depth, when trip
line is pulled, dissolved oxygen sample bottle will begin filling, overflowing
and flushing more than 3 times to insure a representative sample. During
retrieval, decreasing water pressure prevents exchange of air and water
with sample. Excess water in sample chamber can be used for additional
tests such as pH. Interior chamber accommodates our Model 545 armored thermometer
(not included) for accurate sample temperature readings. Use with braided
line and weight.
one-liter sampler of clear acrylic furnished with a 20 meter calibrated
line and a lead collar which assures rapid descent and minimal drift. A
brass messenger triggers a release mechanism to seal the sample chamber
with two fitted rubber plungers at the desired sampling depth. The built-in
side outlet and flexible tube allows for removal of the water sample.
A compact meter that satisfies the accuracy requirements of today’s
technical laboratory as well as field applications. Bold LCD readout provides
DISSOLVED OXYGEN METER
Portable hand-held dissolved oxygen meter designed to provide measurements
for the most critical water quality parameter. Digital readout provides
mg/L, % saturation, and rature readings by selecting a mode. Features automatic
temperature compensation (ATC) for mg/L and % saturation; salinity compensation
is manual by direct dial. Meter comes packaged in a convenient
carrying case with replacement membrane cartridge, membranes, electrolyte,
and protective probe storage sheath.
A data logger is an electronic instrument that records measurements
(temperature, relative humidity, light intensity, on/off, open/closed,
voltage, pressure and events) over time. Typically, data loggers
are small, battery-powered devices that are equipped with a microprocessor,
data storage and sensor. Most data loggers utilize turn-key software on
a personal computer to initiate the logger and view the collected
Test kits use different chemical methods to determine
pH, heavy metals, dissolved oxygen, nitrates, and phosphates.
SEDIMENT AND SOIL
BOTTOM SAMPLING DREDGE
Stainless steel sampler is designed for use on soft bottoms (sand or
silt). A simple trigger holds the sampler open while lowering to cover
a uniform area. Scissor design closes sampler, retrieving a volume
of sediment to the surface for analysis.
SOIL SAMPLING TUBE
A 12" galvanized steel sampler with a 1" core diameter, saw-toothed tip, and cut-away side for examination of
core prior to removal for testing.
