Wastewater Samplers – Portable

by ECD Analyzers, LLC

Wastewater Samplers Portable Range

The ECD Analyzers range of portable automatic wastewater samplers consists of three models, the very small AQUA-COMPACT,  the passively cooled AQUA-COOLBOX and the versatile multi-bottle AQUA-MULTIX, providing complete sampling flexibility.

All can be powered by AC power, an external 12VDC supply or via an integral battery that can provide up to 350 samples on a full charge.

The air pump vacuum sampling system featured within the AQUA Module provides for an extremely accurate, reliable, representative and repeatable sample without the problems than can exist with other types of sampling techniques.

Programming set-up and daily operation have been designed to be as simple and intuitive as possible for the user. Sample extraction can be time based or triggered by external sources such as flow meters, level sensors, pH meters, PLC’s etc.

The samplers can be supplied with a Sample Temperature Monitoring Facility. With this option the minimum, maximum, average and present sample temperatures can be monitored and displayed.  Additionally all the Portable Samplers can be configured with data logging for downloads to a PC or other devices via the USB connection.

As with the stationary style samplers, extraction of samples can be from both non-pressurized and pressurized (when specified with a Pressurized Pipeline Interface) effluent sources.


The AQUA-COMPACT Sampler is ideal when samplers are transported between sites or temporary compliance purposes and offers exceptional performance in a minimal space.

  • Small, compact, and lightweight (only 16 lbs / 7.3 Kg)
  • Suitable for indoor or outdoor use
  • Ambient working temperature range 14 to 122 F (-10 to 50 C)
  • Supplied with integrated easy clean 5 liter low profile composite Sample Container
  • AC power and / or Battery powered
  • Lockable Sampler Cover
  • Front access to Sample Container without disturbing Sampler or Intake Hose


The most versatile member of the Portable family, the AQUA-MULTIX can accommodate a choice of 4 sample collection vessels. Changing sample collection vessels is extremely quick and simple with the Aquacell Modules “lift off” design.

The open aluminum frame structure provides easy visual inspection of the collected samples. Users will quickly appreciate the benefit of being able to see each sample depositing correctly into its container without having to dismantle any part of the sampler.

  • Lightweight (only 18.8 lbs / 8.5 kg)
  • Suitable for indoor or outdoor use
  • Available for use with various sample collection vessels
  • AC power and/or battery powered
  • Lockable sampler cover
  • Front access to sample container without disturbing sampler or intake hose

The AQUA-COOLBOX contains a high performance passive sample temperature control system. This ensures that the collected samples are preserved at an optimal temperature 32 to 41 F (0 to 5 C) up to five days, while awaiting collection / inspection. This is particularly useful when sampling biologically active wastewater.

AQUA-COOLBOX is designed typically to operate at sites where the sampling requirement is infrequent or there is simply no power available.

Thick wall insulation combined with sealed “no mess” cooling elements provide for impressive sample temperature control performance. The passive temperature control system requires no power, therefore maximizing the on-board battery life. Sample temperatures can be measured and logged for subsequent download.

  • Supplied complete with easy 5 liter HDPE composite sample container with lid and 2 cooling elements
  • Suitable for indoor or outdoor use
  • AC power and/or battery powered
  • Separately lockable sampler cover and COOLBOX base
  • 350+ samples achievable with a fully charged battery
