Sediment Sampler


Ekman Grab Sampler (04.34)

The Ekman Grab Sampler is designed for the sediment sampling of water bodies (lakes, rivers etc).

Simply lower the Ekman Grab Sampler into a water column, slowly & steadily, with jaws in the open position.  The jaws close when a weight is dropped (cable operated) or a button is pressed (rod operated), thus capturing a sediment sample at the required depth.

The Ekman Grab Sampler holds a sediment volume equivalent of 3.5 litres.

Grab dimensions are 152mm x 152mm x 152mm.

A  1.5 m Rod (#043401)  enables the rod-operated use of the Ekman Grab Sampler in shallow water.

  • The flaps overlap on closing to prevent the loss of the sample;
  • Stainless steel construction;
  • Equipped with drop-weight system so that sampling can be carried out at any depth.
