Sampling

Soil samples

Soil is sampled using a Cobra manual drilling device that allows sampling fragmental soil up to a depth of 6 m. Sample amount thus taken is sufficient for any chemical analyses. The Cobra drilling device is particularly suited for sampling at locations inaccessible for heavy truck-mounted drilling equipment.

Water samples

We take water samples using different types of pumps – Grundfoss generator-driven ample capacity pump MP-1 (diameter 5 cm) and battery-driven MS-402 pump (diameter ca 10 cm).

Water sampling equipment

We have four different models of waste water samplers. One is designed for sampling from a sewage pumping station, the other three can be used anywhere in a sewer duct. The samplers are capable of independent time-proportional sampling. If volume flow proportional sampling is required, the devices must be coupled to a Flo-Tote or Flo-Dar volume flow meter.

In addition to this we have bathometers for sampling at a specified depth and equipment for sampling sediment in water bodies. Non-stable parameters are determined using measurement equipment from WTW, Eijkelkamp and other manufacturers.

Field group also samples drinking and sea water. Pollutants samples are taken from sea water using a special cloth.
