Clear PVC EcoBailers in various sizes

Clear PVC EcoBailer

fast sinking

The Waterra Clear PVC EcoBailer is an eco-friendly product that is as heavy (or heavier) than conventional weighted bailers without the addition of bulky and costly weights. A better weight distribution allows the Waterra Clear PVC EcoBailer to sink straighter and the efficient valve design makes it the fastest sinking bailer available.

  • available in 3 popular sizes
  • faster sinking than polyethylene bailers
  • clear tube allows sample inspection within the bailer
  • connects directly to inline filters for easy filtration, no pressurization needed
  • requires less material to produce, resulting in less waste and cost to the environment
  • PVC ball with no leakage
SIZE DIAMETER LENGTH VOLUME QUANTITY

1.5" 1.5" 3' 1 L 24 bailers/case
0.7" 0.7" 3' 230 ML 24 bailers/case
0.5" 0.46" 3' 85 ML 24 bailers/case

ADAPTS TO DISPOSABLE FILTERS

All Waterra Clear PVC EcoBailers are easily adapted to the Waterra FHT-45 Disposable Groundwater Filterfor collection of samples for metals analysis directly from the bailer.

A short length of 1/4" OD or 1/2” OD LDPE tubing along with the Bottom Emptying Spout can be used to easily connect the FHT-45 or FMT-45 inline disposable groundwater filter to the bailer. This allows the bailed sample to flow by gravity directly through the filter and into a sample container. In many cases a 1 litre sample can be filtered in under 2 minutes using this method.

CLEAR PVC

Ecobailers are made of clear virgin PVC with a density of 1.31 whereas most disposable bailers are made of polyethylene, which has a specific gravity of 0.96 to 0.98.

Since PVC is also transparent (whereas polyethylene is translucent), when you use Waterra Clear PVC EcoBailers you can inspect your sample while it's still in the bailer.

 

BOTTOM EMPTYING


Bottom Emptying Spout

These bailers are designed with a special valve and valve seat to provide more positive sealing and less clogging when removing the bailer from the well. All Waterra bailers, including the narrow 0.7" and 0.5", come with the handy Bottom Emptying Spout. It assists in collecting non-aerated samples from the valve end of the bailer, which is ideal for VOC sample collection.

Weighted Polyethylene EcoBailers

Weighted Polyethylene EcoBailers

durable

Waterra's Weighted Polyethylene EcoBailers use the same design as our popular Clear PVC EcoBailers. They also feature a thicker tube wall than competing models. As a result, Polyethylene EcoBailers are less likely to bend when handled. Bent bailers will oscillate when travelling down the well column and they will sink more slowly.

  • longer valves to prevent silt entry and leakage
  • easy pour tops to facilitate the sampling process
  • custom molded emptying devices that allow control of sample flow

Hydrocarbon Recovery EcoBailer

captures only hydrocarbons

The Waterra Clear PVC Hydrocarbon Recovery EcoBailer is an eco-friendly product that is designed to help you remove the LNAPL, floating hydrocarbon product, from your monitoring wells without removing water as well.

The Hydrocarbon Recovery EcoBailer uses a specially designed ball which floats in water but sinks in in hydrocarbons. This bailer is made from the same durable, rigid PVC as the regular Waterra Clear PVC EcoBailer and so has all the same great qualities.

  • available in 1.5" diameter X 3' length
  • faster sinking than polyethylene bailers
  • clear tube allows sample inspection within the bailer
  • requires less material to produce, resulting in less waste and cost to the environment
  • captures only hydrocarbons, not water
