MAXX desert sampler

Vacuum water sampling system

The MAXX desert sampler is a self-contained vacuum water sampling system used for first flush applications when collecting the sample at the rain or discharge source is impractical. The system can be installed in situ and left dormant for up to a year. When a sampling event occurs, the sampler is triggered and a sample is automatically collected using the battery powered vacuum pump into the sample collection bottle. The sample is now ready for collection and analysis.

Acoem Australasia (Ecotech Pty Ltd) is the exclusive distributor of MAXX (Maxx Meß- und Probenahmetechnik GmbH) products in Australia and New Zealand.
