McLane Large Volume Samplers can pump 36,000 litres of sea water

McLane WTS-LV upright Large Volume pump micro plastics micro-plasticsThe McLane Large Volume Water Transfer System (WTS-LV) is used to collect a single sample onto a 142mm membrane filter by drawing ambient water through the filter holder without passing through the pump first. It is most commonly deployed suspended from the hydrowire of a research vessel. Depending on the filter installed it may be used to collect suspended particles, particulate trace metals, phytoplankton or micro-plastics.
The WTS-LV is available with a choice of pump size to suit a range of filter porosity depending on the specimen to be collected.
As material accumulates on the filter, the pump speed dynamic algorithm adjusts  to minimise the risk of a damaged sample and maximise battery endurance.
The filter holder is modular and designed to evenly distribute collected material.
A three-tiered filter holder option is also available.

There are  four configurations of WTS-LV :

  • WTS-LV-Standard     – 10Ahr battery pack (up to 15,000 litres of seawater)
  • WTS-LV-Upright       – High capacity battery 30Ahr battery pack (up to 36,000 litres of sea water)
  • WTS-LV-Bore Hole   – to fit inside a 30 cm bore hole
  • WTS-LV-Dual Filter –  two vertical intake 142 mm filter holders to allow simultaneous filtering using two different porosities.
