Disposable bailers

Clearwater Engineering has released the Titan Series line of disposable bailers for groundwater sampling needs. These bailers offer more accurate sampling and achieve fast descent and fill times without introducing any sample aeration or agitation. The check ball apparatus is completely redesigned to eliminate leakage. The bailers use a soft-coated hemisphere that completely closes off the bailer orifice even in the presence of silt to ensure a tight seal. The bailer weights have been relocated to the exterior where they have been counter-balanced.
