The main purpose of the Standard Plankton Net is to conduct a simple sampling of a specific water stratum (only 1 filtration accuracy).
  • The standard plankton net is conical and is the simplest type of sampling net.
  • It can be used for horizontal, vertical or oblique sampling.
  • It is laced on a
    stainless steel
    with a towing flange and a filtering bucket at its end. 
  • Standard opening diameter (25cm, 50cm, 75cm, 100cm). Other sizes are available on request. 
  • The ratio of opening diameter to length of the net is usually 1:3 or 1:5. Customized nets with different ratios can also be manufactured.
  • Material: Precision Filtration
