Wastewater sampling can be an arduous process. Because treatment facilities are held to high uniform standards, the methods for both collecting and testing samples must be secure. Emerald Coast recently introduced the WAVE electronically controlled vacuum wastewater sampler to take secure sampling to the next level. The heavy-duty refrigerated sampler provides composite and sequential sampling options with high accuracy.

“The WAVE was built with human interaction in mind,” says Ron Jones, president of Emerald Coast. “Features include a sleek enclosure design, easy-to-access sampling compartment and a full-color touch screen with that interaction in mind.”

The unit comes with a high-impact and weather-resistant acrylic/ABS body for all-season use in indoor and harsh outdoor environments. An integrated touch screen enables users to specify the volumes of water and program times and flow intervals to collect samples. Controls also let users digitally regulate temperature within the sample compartment, from the unit directly or from an app-enabled device.

In the unit’s fully customizable sampling program, the operator can stop, pause and resume the current program from a user-friendly home screen, along with manually drawing samples, while easily viewing all the selected program options. Aside from setting all the program parameters from cycle details to bottle type, the user has the ability to access previous cycle information from a selected date and time range. The user manual and help options are easily available from all screens.

The vacuum system generates strong purges that remove contamination. It can draw samples from long distances and can pull samples with vertical lifts of nearly 30 feet, and it provides consistently accurate sampling with no need to replace internal tubes.

“Its advanced sampling system showcases the highly effective and accurate sampling process while being fully configurable to fit specific needs,” Jones says. “It has an extremely efficient cooling unit paired with state-of-the-art internal components to minimize complexity and the quantity of internal parts.”

Features include a heavy-duty piston vacuum pump; 1-liter, 2.5-gallon and 5.5-gallon sample container options; programmable sample size; and constant sampling intervals up to 9,999 minutes. The unit has a 7-inch color touch screen, data logging capability, an alarm output option, auto shut-off and passcode protection.
