Dipping containers are used in various areas to collect liquids for sampling. Bürkle produces the most comprehensive collection of dipping containers by a long way, the right product for every use as it were.

Bürkle offers dipping bottles and immersion cylinders for sediments, for the area of environmental issues, for chemically aggressive products, for petrochemistry, for the ex protection area etc. The dipping bottles for the Ex protection area are made of nickel-plated brass, therefore they do not oxidise.

Dipping vessels can be used for point sampling, all-layer samples and soil samples.

Dipping vessels are heavy. Lowering requires the use of special manually-operated drum reels with a large winding diameter. Other manually-operated drum reels place too much strain on the user’s wrist and could represent a health hazard. Lowering cables and chains made from different materials, as well as manually-operated drum reels, also for Ex-proof applications, available as accessories.

Immersion cylinder for sampling crude oil, liquid mineral oil products, fuels, special and test fuels, fuel oils, petroleum and liquid lubricants in Explosion Categories IIA, IIB and IIC. Completely made from non-spark producing materials, nickel-plated.


Point sampling

  1. Two lowering cables are required for this (bearer cable and hauling cable).
  2. Lower the immersion cylinder to the required depth.
  3. When the target has been reached, pull on the hauling cable, the valve opens.
  4. The sample flows into the bottle.
  5. Release the hauling cable. The valve closes. Pull the cylinder back on the bearer cable.
  6. Empty the cylinder via the valve at the bottom.

Soil sample

  1. Lower the immersion cylinder on the cable to the ground.
  2. The valve opens automatically because of the immersion cylinder’s own weight.
  3. The sample flows into the cylinder.
  4. Pull the cylinder back on the cable, the valve closes independently.
  5. Empty the cylinder via the valve at the bottom.

Observe Ex-proof guidelines when sampling flammable liquids. Only use conductive lowering cables made of nonspark-producing material and conductive hand reels with grounding connection.
