​​PLATINUM Vacuum Sampler

Two Models for All-Season, Refrigerated Wastewater Sampling

PLATINUM Vacuum SamplerThe PLATINUM vacuum samplers from Teledyne ISCO are a heavy duty, all season refrigerated composite/sequential wastewater sampler. With a fiberglass base and body, the all season unit is suitable for corrosive environments and severe outdoor/indoor conditions.
The PLATINUM vacuum pump exceeds EPA transport velocity requirements and generates a stronger purge. PLATINUM samplers collect specified volumes of water at programmed times or flow intervals and deposits them into refrigerated composite or sequential sample containers.

Their piston vacuum pumps provide long-term consistent sampling with vertical lifts of up to 28 feet (8.5 m), with no need to frequently replace the internal tubes. With a powerful pump, the sampler can draw a sample from a larger distance. The pump provides a strong purge to remove c​ontamination.


When you purchase instruments from Teledyne ISCO, you not only receive innovative, high quality products, you also receive excellent customer service and product support. Your initial purchase is only the beginning of Teledyne ISCO's ongoing commitment to their customers.
