Depth Integrating Sediment Samplers D49 or D49A

A sampler for suspension by gauging winch to take suspended-sediment samples in streams not greater than 10 m in depth.The head of the sampler is hinged to permit access to the sample container. Tail fins are provided to orient the instrument into the stream flow. The head of the sampler is drilled and tapped to receive the 6.3mm/4.8mm, or 3.2mm 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.
