Why Catch The

  • Accurate Sample Sizes

    Typical peristaltic samplers are notorious for being out of calibration when the silicon pump tubing loses its original shape. The WAVE™ uses patented vacuum technology that delivers precise samples every time.
  • Low Maintenance

    No more rollers, or pesky tube replacements. The WAVE™ requires little-to-no maintenance, so you can focus on your application instead of worrying about routine upkeep.
  • Built to Last

    Constructed with an all-weather, acrylic/ABS body and a heavy-duty piston vacuum/pressure pump, The WAVE™ is built to resist corrosion and withstand the harshest of indoor and outdoor environments without compromising performance.
  • Impressive Head Lift & Intake Lines

    With intake lines up to 200 feet long and a head lift of up to 29 feet, The WAVE™ exceeds EPA transport velocity standards while remaining accurate.
  • Eliminates Risk of Cross Contamination

    With a powerful purge capability and a refrigerated chamber - the minimized risk of cross-contamination is second to none. View purge video.
  • Protected by WaveGuard Warranty

    To provide extra peace of mind and confidence — every unit purchased is backed by our 2-year WaveGuard Warranty Program. The program covers all parts and is valid for two years from the time of shipment.

How We Stack Up Against Peristaltic Competitors

Our Technology

The WAVE™ uses a proprietary, patented design that makes it the best wastewater sampler on the market.

Built with a rotating arm and a programmable sample size - The WAVE™ sustains the integrity and accuracy of the sample due to the stronger purge and velocity, resulting in lower maintenance and precise volume every time.

  • The WAVE™ Vacuum sampler uses a vacuum/pressure pump to provide the vacuum and pressure that moves the liquid. A chamber is used to hold and measure the liquid sample before depositing it into a container. The pressure pump forces air into the chamber, purging it and the intake hose of liquid, then draws liquid into the chamber until sample is complete. Then, the excess sample is purged out of the intake hose. Then the sample is deposited into the container.

  • Vacuum samplers do not have tubing wear. When the tubing is worn on the peristaltic sampler by 10%, it affects the sample size and velocities by 10%. Therefore, the sample sizes must be calibrated often, but the line velocity loss will remain. The line velocities could fall below the EPA recommendations. That loss of sample size and velocity is not seen in vacuum samplers.
