No-purge groundwater sampling device provides larger sample volume, a full 1 liter, to be used in 2" schedule 40 and larger wells. Holds ~1,000 mls. 

The armored HydraSleeves have a protective outer sleeve that more than doubles the wall thickness.

An Armored HydraSleeve could be useful in steel wells, open boreholes, or anywhere you might expect that the HydraSleeve would come in contact with jagged edges or increased potential for abrasion.

Disposable. Fits in 2" Schedule 40 and larger wells. Standard material = virgin 7 mil PE.

We would suggest moving one up on the weight size chart to overcome any trapped air between the layers of material, and also to accommodate pulling down the additional buoyancy of the Armored HydraSleeves.  We would suggest unsing 11-ounce minimum with this armored HS-2-1L-ARMOR

Absolute maximum volume obtainable without spilling 1.1 liters

2.75" 38" 1.75" ~1000 ml


Fill stroke is the length of the sampler when used in 2-inch wells.  It will be longer for larger diameter wells.  Alternative method of recovery is recommended for use in larger wells - see link below.

DO NOT USE SPRING CLIPS WHERE JAGGED EDGES AND OBSTACLES ARE APPEARANT DOWNHOLE - Therefore you typically will not use spring clips with armored versions of the HydraSleeve.

Minimum Recommended Weight
11-ounce bottom weight
If the well is more than 250 feet deep,
or there are obstacles down hole,
you may want to use heavier than
11 ounces.  Also stringing multiple sleeves
on one tether requires heavier weight.
