D49 is an easy-to-use sediment sampler to take suspended-sediment samples in streams not greater than 10 m in depth. The instrument is mounted on a hanger bar and attached to the suspension cable on a gauging winch for lowering and raising.
The head of the sampler is hinged to permit access to the sample container. Tail ﬁns help to orient the instrument into the stream ﬂow. The head of the sampler is drilled and tapped to receive the intake nozzle which projects into the current for collecting the sample. A port which points downstream is provided on the side of the sampler head from which air escapes as it is displaced by the sample being collected in the container.
Easy handling of heavy samplers
HyQuest Solutions’ equipment for sediment sampling has been designed to facilitate the proper operation of heavier sediment samplers like D49. For that purpose, general support equipment (hanger bars and winches) are available as optional extras. Specific conditions at a site may require special support equipment to improve ease of handling in response to the local conditions and to ensure the safety of the person taking the measurements. Please ask for advice.
