  • Simply the best way to manage tubing for low-flow groundwater sampling

    The Rapid Reel is a simple cardboard tubing dispenser for our biodegradable tubing for low-flow sampling. Low-flow sampling has just been made easier! Simply connect the tubing to your sampling pump then deploy down the well, letting the tubing flow easily out of the Rapid Reel box. Clean and simple. Testimonials: "I used the rapid reel last time I was groundwater sampling and thought it was great. Made life so much easier, especially on the deep wells." Samantha Walsh - Landserv “I have to say, when I saw the rapid reel on your website, memories sprung to mind of countless times spent fighting soggy cardboard reels and unruly tubing. The Rapid Reel did live up to my expectations. It definitely helped keep my ute/workspace tidier, and it was quicker and easier to reel out the quantity I needed." Anonymous - Ventia

    Landfill Biodegradable - Responsible use of Disposable Plastic Now you can filter groundwater in the field responsibly by using landfill-biodegradable filters. The AquaPore 800 biodegradable filter has a huge 800cm2 capacity to handle water with high turbidity, while the AquaPore 500 has a 500cm2 capacity for medium turbidity. Both filters have the same proprietary additive we use in our other biodegradable products to make them landfill biodegradable. It has been designed specifically for the preparation of groundwater samples for dissolved metals analysis and for filtering large volumes of turbid groundwater.  
  • Landfill Biodegradable Bladders are now available! Low-Flow Sampling has been the preferred method of choice for many years now in Australia for groundwater sampling. Now you can use disposable bladders responsibly by choosing our landfill biodegradable bladders. Fieldtech Solutions has developed biodegradable* concertina style bladders, and also tube style bladders for 2 of the most popular low-flow groundwater sampling pumps. These bladders have the same biodegradable additive as our other disposable sampling products so that they will biodegrade once disposed to a landfill. Independent laboratory testing confirms that our bladders are PFC/PFAS-free, based on analysis for 28 different PFCs at extremely low detection limits.
  • Landfill-biodegradable nitrile disposable glove with Eco Best Technology®. Provides comfort, dexterity and protection from chemicals. *Biodegradation has been verified by independent laboratory using ASTM D5511 for anaerobic landfill conditions.
  • Low Cost, No Purge Groundwater Sampler These types of samplers are fast becoming a popular method for groundwater sampling on many Australian sites. Sleeve samplers make groundwater sampling a simple, three-step operation that can be more effective than purging or low-flow sampling. The low-cost, disposable sleeve captures a core of water from any discrete interval in the screened portion of the well with no change in water level and minimal disturbance to the water column. The sleeve is sealed except during sample collection, then re-seals itself, assuring that a formation quality sample is recovered. The tripod stand option provides a convenient place to hang a full sampler while filling sample bottles. Independent laboratory testing confirms that sleeve samplers are PFC/PFAS-free, based on analysis for 28 different PFCs at extremely low detection limits.
  • Disposable Bailer Cord Our disposable bailer cord is mainly used to deploy bailers and sleeve samplers.  Made from polypropylene, it is well suitable for all types of ground water sampling. The 2.5mm diameter twine is packaged in a convenient 100m spool and also made in Australia. It has a manufacturers stated break load of approximately 195kg, so can be used for a range of applications.
  • Biodegradable Cleaning Concentrate Decon 90 is a highly effective decontamination and cleaning liquid which is also biodegradable. It can be used to clean pumps, bailers, tubing, soil augers, or any sampling equipment where cross-contamination between sampling locations is a concern. Decon 90 is highly effective on petroleum contamination such as fuels and oils, but also Strontium 90, Iodine 131, Carbon 14, Phosphorus 32, Au 198, Hg 203, Translutonium, Tantalum and radiocarbon are all handled by Decon 90. It also caters for a wide range of problem contaminants including: Abrasives, agar algae, apiezon get bacteria, blood, distillation residues, latex, protein complexes, pus, tar, sera, silicone, grease and oil, reagents, etc. Download MSDS

    • Wide range of membranes and volume capacity
  • Biodegradable Cleaning Concentrate Quantumclean is a highly effective decontamination and cleaning liquid which is also biodegradable.  Quantum clean can also be used to clean radioactive contamination. It can be used to clean pumps, bailers, tubing, soil augers, or any sampling equipment where cross-contamination between sampling locations is a concern. Quantum Clean is a concentrated mixture of surfactants, chelating agents, stabilising agents and alkali salts in aqueous solution. The mixture is non-flammable, completely water miscibleand biodegradable. Quantum clean does not containphosphates or poly-fluoroalkyl substances.
  • Turn your BioTubing into a groundwater pump Waterra footvalves or inertial pumps have long been a reliable and effective way to sample groundwater. They consist of a one-way checkvalve which connects to a length of HDPE BioTubing. Oscillating the tubing up and down in the well produces a flow of water. The tubing can also be connected to external pumps such as the Waterra Powerpack or PowerPump. Waterra footvalves can be a great sampling solution for narrow diameter wells. Fieldtech Solutions stock a range of the most popular sizes such as the D25, D32, and D16 footvalves. Each of these can connect to our BioTubing which allows it to function as a manual groundwater pump.  
  • The Mityvac Silverline Hand Pump can be used for filtering water samples, using either vaccum or pressure to move the sample through the filter. Most commonly they are used on the vaccuum setting in conjunction with the Stericup filters.
    • Gauges the vacuum and pressure during leakages, fluid transfer and fluid drainage
    • Working pressure is 30 psi
    • Ergonomic design
    • Easy to use
  • The Waterra PowerPack PP1 provides the mechanical actuation for pumping with inertial pumps to depths of over 60m, in a fully portable, single operator power unit. At 13 kg, the PowerPack PP1 provides outstanding pumping performance. The PP1 is powerful enough to lift water from over 60m depth using the Standard Flow System, and is so compact that it fits onto a back-pack frame. The PowerPack PP1 incorporates clamps for Waterra High Flow and Standard tubing sizes (adaptors are available for smaller tubes). A Honda GX-25 series, 1.0 horsepower, 4 stroke, gasoline motor powers this device, which can run for approximately 1 hour without refuelling.
  • Using syringes for groundwater filtration in the field is a popular low-cost option. It can be an ideal choice if you are not using a pump, and have a manual device such as a bailer. When using a syringe 50ml at a time can be pushed through a filter. Small low-capacity filters can be used where turbidity is low. However if turbidity is high then it may be better to use a high capacity filter such as the AquaPore Biodegradable Filter Capsule. Syriges are available in luer-lock, catheter tipped, or eccentric tipped varieties.
