Solinst 3001 BioFoul Screen
Long Term Performance Ensures reliable conductivity and pressure measurements
Extended Deployment Periods Uses natural anti-fouling characteristics of copper
An Affordable Option Reduces the need for maintenance
Solinst have produced the Model 3001 BioFoul Screen purposefully for use with the levelogger Edge, Levelogger Junior Edge or the LTC Levelogger Junior to extend the time a Levelogger is deployed for before maintenance is required. When a Levelogger is deployed for extended periods in costal and saltwater environments there is and increased risk of biofouling, consequently the build up of biofoul on the pressure sensor or the conductivity cell can compromise reliability of readings. The Model 3001 BioFoul Screen is now the perfect user friendly option, consisting of a Delrin sleeve wrapped in copper wire that simply slips onto the sensor end of the Levelogger where it is held in place by friction fit. Water can still freely enter the pressure sensor of any levelogger and conductivity cell of an LTC without compromising the results.
Historically Leveloggers have and can still be cleaned by soaking them for a short amount of time in a very weak acid solution, although this is perfectly suitable for cleaning loggers it can also be time consuming, increase maintenance costs and trips to the field.
The BioFoul Screen uses natural anti-fouling characteristics of copper which reduce the unwanted buildup of microorganisms, plants, algae or organisms such as barnacles and mussels.
