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