CLAM 5000 – Complete Water Extraction Kit

The CLAM or (Continuous Low-Level Aquatic Monitoring) mimics a real clam or indicator organism. It actively filters the water at a low flow rate capturing total and dissolved organics within its solid phase extraction media.

CLAM Components for In-situ Solid Phase Extraction


Water Sampling CLAM Shell

Diameter footprint 6.5″x4.865″; constructed with a Polycarbonate body housing
Water tight external recharging port. Rechargeable Battery, runs for 48 hrs
Luer fittings on the C.L.A.M inlet allow for easy disk attachment
Protection tubes provided to shroud the use of two or three disk arrays
Within the CLAM’s water sampling shell is a self-contained SPE extraction manifold performing EPA method 3535
Weighs under 2 pound
Eight digit display sealed in the sphere, visible from exterior with a exterior Submersible reset button
Uses a small onboard mechanical oval gear flow sensor, with accuracy of +/- 1% of empirical volume




SPE cartridges housing the solid phase extraction media disks are manufactured using HDPP
The SPE cartridges provide Luer-Lok connectors, inlet flow dispersion, triple lofted depth pre-filtration, supporting filter screens
Housings encase the same high-capacity SPE media disks, and binder free pre-filters used today in water testing laboratories

CLAM SPE Cartridges

Only SPE cartridge needed to submit results of the solid phase extraction process
The HDPP housing for the SPE extraction media also serves as a protective casing for shipping
Luer-Lok connectors allow for connecting or “staging” of two or more SPE media disks together for total dissolved, different media, or breakthrough studies
Luer-Lok plugs are used to seal the disks after conditioning, deployment, and for secure and breakage-free shipping


Water Sampling Protective Case

All of the water sampling equipment and necessary components for field SPE extraction can easily be carried in hard-shelled protective Pelican case. The case contains padded foam that has been specially cut to fit SPE cartridges, batteries, the battery holder, syringe, Luer-Lok connectors and Luer-Lok plugs.
