NSA 171 - Climatised precipitation sampler for mercury

Key benefits

  • Suitable for GMOS specifications
  • Suitable for DIN EN 15853 for collecting mercury in precipitation
  • Integrated cooling and heating capacity and insulated housing
  • Easy to service

The precipitation sampler is used for the purpose of collecting the precipitation into a large single sample bottle. The individual sample bottle can be easily removed from the apparatus at the end of the period of measurement for laboratory analysis. Every single component which is used for measurement is made out of chemically neutral material and placed in a thermally insulated housing. At high temperatures the housing is cooled automatically (optional) to avoid overheating from intense radiation of the sun. For winter operation an electronically controlled funnel heating and a heating for the sample room are provided.
