Review of Groundwater Monitoring Sampling Equipments in Foreign Countries

The sampling equipment for groundwater monitoring is divided into bucket sampler, inertial sampler, gas-driven sampler and the submersible pump sampler in foreign countries.The bucket sampler has the features of simple technical principle, easy-making, low cost and wide application range and is less affected by the monitoring well diameter and the sampling depth;the inertial sampler has small diameter and can be used in small diameter monitoring well with sampling depth up to 90m; the gas-driven sampler has complex structure and wide application range, which is suitable for most groundwater monitoring wells with high efficiency;the submersible pump sampler is the most effective one in these four.
