single piece 8 foot TruCore sludge sampler better than the sludge judge

SLudge Sampler

Made in the USA

The Sim/Tech Filter TruCore for core sampling of wastewater and other fluids.  The design of the unit allows samples to be taken without creating the excessive turbulence often associated with standard samplers.  Because there are no restrictions caused by valves, stoppers, flaps, etc., fluid is allowed to flow freely and virtually undisturbed into the sampling tube creating a true core sample of the contents of the tank.  It also has a huge sampling capacity compared to other sludge core samplers on the market.  With an inside diameter of 1-3/8” the capacity per foot is almost 10 ounces.  Use the Sim/Tech Filter TruCore for more accurate and easier sampling.  No more need to judge your sludge, use a TruCore and see the difference.

Cleaning the TruCore Sludge Sampler

cleaning brush for Trucore sludge sampler

Cleaning Brush

Dish soap or other similar cleaners are best for cleaning the TruCore as most other dirt simply flushes away when releasing the sample. ***DO NOT USE BLEACH***  Bleach will compromise the integrity of the polycarbonate tubing.  If you prefer we also offer a cleaning brush (STF-TCCB) which comes ready to accept 1/2" pvc pipe or conduit for you to attach your desired handle length.
