SBE Improved Model 110 Sample Bottle

SBE Improved O.T.E. Model 110 Sample Bottle

Rugged titanium base and Delrin mount blocks are substituted for the glued-PVC components used on other types. Non-metallic, free-flushing water sampler bottles in 5, 8, 10, or 12-liter sizes.

O.T.E. non-metallic free-flushing water sampling bottles with improved Sea-Bird mounting hardware are available in 5, 8, 10, or 12 liter sizes. These bottles substitute a rugged titanium base and glass-filled urethane mount blocks for the glued-PVC components used on other types. The base is securely attached – not glued – to the bottle using stainless steel clamps. The clamps are electrically isolated from the titanium base to prevent galvanic attack.

These improved bottles fit existing bottle frame adapter plates, or, for activation by a messenger, can be supplied for individual or serial attachment to a hydrowire. The improved bottles are strongly recommended for operation in cold regions, where PVC mounts become brittle and prone to breakage.

FEATURES 

  • Gray PVC sampler body.
  • Latex tubing spring closure.
  • Mounting blocks to attach to bottle stand adapter plates.
  • Release lanyards.
  • Delrin drain valve.
  • Buna O-rings.
  • Bottle warranty as provided by Ocean Test Equipment (O.T.E.); five-year limited warranty from Sea-Bird for mounting hardware.

OPTIONS

PART # DESCRIPTION NOTES
801000 5 liter PVC Sample Bottle, Carousel mount SBE Improved sample bottles substitute a rugged titanium base & glass-filled urethane mount blocks for glued-PVC components used on standard Ocean Test Equipment (OTE) bottles. Base is securely attached — not glued — to bottle using stainless steel clamps. Clamps are electrically isolated from titanium base to prevent galvanic attack. The improved bottles are strongly recommended for operation in cold regions, where PVC mounts become brittle and prone to breakage.

SBE Improved sample bottles are available in 5-, 8-, 10, & 12-liter sizes. For other sizes (1.7-, 2.5-, 20-, & 30-liters), see Third Party sample bottles from Ocean Test Equipment.

Each SBE Improved bottle size is available in several types:

  • Carousel mount — Upper & lower bottle end caps are held in place by a length of latex tubing that runs inside bottle; when lanyard is released from pylon, latex tubing snaps bottle closed. Most common type of bottle.
  • Carousel mount, External stainless-steel spring — External stainless-steel spring replaces internal latex tubing; when lanyard is released from pylon, spring snaps bottle closed. Spring may function better in extreme cold than latex tubing. Because spring is external, it eliminates possibility of contamination of water sample from contaminants on internal latex tubing.
  • Carousel mount, Internal teflon coated spring — Upper & lower bottle end caps are held in place by a teflon-coated spring that runs inside bottle; when lanyard is released from pylon, spring snaps bottle closed. Spring may function better in extreme cold than latex tubing. Contaminants are less likely to adhere to teflon-coated spring than to latex tubing, reducing possibility of contamination of water sample.
  • Carousel & Wire messenger mount — Upper & lower bottle end caps are held in place by a length of latex tubing that runs inside bottle; when lanyard is released from pylon or messenger is sent down wire, latex tubing snaps bottle closed. Allows bottles to be used on Carousel and also provides option to mount bottles to a hydrowire where messenger weights are dropped down wire to close bottles manually.

External Stainless-Steel Spring — Overall and Connection Detail

 

Note: Each bottle comes with materials needed for lanyards (nylon monofilament line, brass hook, nicopress sleeves, & plastic lanyard ball).

  • If bottles are ordered with SBE 32 Carousel Water Sampler, Sea-Bird puts Carousel together, mounts bottles, rigs lanyards appropriately, and then removes bottles and disassembles as needed for shipping. Therefore, lanyards are already rigged when customer receives bottles.
  • However, if bottles are ordered separately, Sea-Bird cannot rig lanyards because we do not know precise lengths required. Customer is responsible for mounting bottles to Carousel & rigging lanyards appropriately, using provided lanyard materials. Note that a tool (such as pliers made for crimping on soldered electrical connections) is needed to crimp nicopress sleeves; see PN 65001, Crimping Tool for Nicopress Sleeves, in SBE 32 Bottle Spares & Accessories.
