Sigma SD900 (All Weather Refrigerated Sampler / AWRS)

Unsurpassed Corrosion Resistance
With American Sigma´s All-Weather Refrigerated Sampler, spending time and money to maintain your sampler is a thing of the past. We designed this unit to last longer than any other sampler available. First, we put the compressor on top to avoid hydrogen sulfide and other corrosive heavier-than-air gases, which attack conventional refrigerated samplers with floor-level compressors. Then, we equipped the sampler with a tough, chemically resistant coating to better protect refrigeration lines against moisture and corrosive gases. Finally, we used stainless steel hardware, sealed electrical connections and weather resistant cables to complete its corrosion-resistant design.

Mother Nature Meets Her Match
Customers quickly learn that the name All-Weather is no exaggeration. This sampler is designed to operate anywhere - indoors or out - without a secondary enclosure. Completely self-contained, the All-Weather is rated for operation in temperatures from -40° to 120°F. The cabinet is linear low density polyethylene with rounded, moisture-shedding, UV-resistant surfaces. Its sidewall ventilation system allows positioning against a wall, and its sturdy locks prevent tampering. Leveling feet and anchor brackets ensure proper, secure installation. For operation in sub-zero temperatures see Model 3540SDRH with controller compartment heater.

  • SD900 Controller porgrams in minutes
  • Spring loaded pump rollers deliver 20x pump tubing over other samplers
  • Insulated cabinet lid protects pump and controller from the elements and extreme temperatures
  • Refrigerator Maintains 4°C.
  • Built to last with rugged construction and a sealed controller

Sigma 900 Controller

For applications requiring sampling alone, the Sigma 900 provides simple operation and maximum reliability.

The Sigma 900 Controller Simplifies Sampling:
Sampling doesn´t need to be difficult. With the 900 controller, you can maintain total EPA conformance. The self-prompting format of the 900 - with its 24-character alphanumeric display - is as easy to use as a calculator. Suitable for NPDES, Stormwater or Combined Sewer Overflow applications, the 900 can be configured for ten composite or multiple bottle setups. You can easily enter and store five separate sampling programs into the controller memory. And, the 900 is equipped with a vertically mounted pump that isolates electronics from fluid spills. This reliable sampler is simple to understand, efficient to use and tough enough to last - everything you need for basic sampling.

 

 

Sigma 900 MAX Controller:

Should you be required to sample for regulatory compliance, monitor combined sewer overflows or storm water outfalls, or conduct biomonitoring research, look no further than the advanced technology of the Sigma 900 MAX Controller.

The Sigma 900 MAX Monitors & Manages:

For a full-fledged water management tool, nothing compares to the Sigma 900 MAX Controller . This highly advanced sampler features a large 8-line x 40-character backlit display that allows you to quickly select information from an easy menu-type programming format. And with 12 datalogging channels, the Sigma 900 MAX can be much more than a sampler.

You can also log up to seven external analog signals in the Sigma 900 MAX All Weather Sampler and up to three in the Sigma 900 MAX Portable and Refrigerated Samplers . The Sigma 900 MAX records as many as 116,000 readings on one or any combination of the 12 channels. RAM memory is automatically allocated as necessary during operation - either as "wrap-around" (drops off the oldest data) or "slate" (stops storing new data). Flash memory allows you to install software enhancements (available on the Internet) easily, without returning the sampler to the factory, so you will always have the latest monitoring technology.

Unique Constant Time/Variable Volume Sampling:

The Sigma 900 MAX´s unique Constant Time/Variable Volume feature varies sample size in proportion to flow rate, capturing flow-weighted samples on the first try. This new patented* method closely simulates manual grab sampling. Conventional samplers vary the intervals between samples in relation to the flow rate, while sample sizes remain constant. During low flow periods, sample intervals can increase dramatically, producing insufficient sample volumes for proper analysis. High flows cause sample containers to fill before the desired sample period ends. These conditions make capturing short-lived illicit discharges or significant storm events difficult. The Sigma 900 MAX Constant Time/Variable Volume feature takes regularly timed samples, adjusting the sample size proportionally to the flow rate. The sample volume increases and decreases with the flow, ensuring that proportional samples are taken at even intervals throughout the sampling period.

* Constant Time, Variable Volume patent #5587926, "Refrigerated fluid sampling apparatus and method with variable volume sampling system.

Data Management Software Makes Life Easy:

Once the Sigma 900 MAX collects your data, its powerful and user-friendly software makes it easy to analyze the data and produce presentation-quality reports.

Our Data Management software´s reporting capability includes maximums, minimums, totals and averages for a day, a month or any period you choose.

Three Ways to Download Data with the Sigma 900 MAX:

The advanced two-way communications of the Sigma 900 MAX seamlessly integrate with your existing communications. You can download your data three ways:

  • Sampler to DTU to PC: Compared to laptops, American Sigma´s palm-sized Data Transfer Unit is a much faster, easier and more economical way to get data from field to office. The waterproof DTU is so simple, it requires no training or PC experience to use. It can hold data from up to 20 samplers.
  • Sampler to Modem to PC: Our built-in modem transmits your data via cellular phone or telephone lines right to your office. American Sigma´s InSight?Gold Data Management and Analysis Software can automatically call your sampler at a predetermined time to retrieve data, or data may be retrieved on demand. Additionally, the Sigma 900 MAX can send out alarm conditions to up to three pagers or a central monitoring computer.
  • Sampler to PC: Sigma´s Insight?Gold Data Management and Analysis Software allows you to link your Sigma 900 MAX directly to your PC via the standard built-in RS-232 serial port.
