​CVE-16-P Portable Composite/Sequential Vacuum Wastewater Sampler                             

Wide range of bottle configurations and QCEC reliability

CVE-16-PThe model CVE-16-P is our portable, composite/sequential vacuum wastewater sampler. It relies on proven vacuum technology to deliver high sample integrity and reliable performance. The vacuum pump exceeds EPA transport velocity requirements and generates a stronger purge. The maximum vertical lift is 23 feet on a standard unit, and 28 feet is available as an option. This portable unit is double walled, insulated, and has a rotationally molded polyethylene plastic case. Weighing 36 pounds, the CVE-16-P is ea​sily transported to sample wastewater and effluents from sewers, flumes, manholes, etc. A two year warranty is standard.
