Voss Technologies has developed a bailer that you use once and then throw away. Voss Technologies now makes a FREE PRODUCT BAILER. The free product bailer comes in 1.5”x36” non-weighted and weighted versions.

In 1988, Voss Technologies created the original disposable bailer. You know the routine: drop it in, pull it out, drop it in, pull it out. We wanted to save environmental engineers time and money, so we created a disposable bailer that you can use once and then throw away.

While that original bailer has gone through several design improvements over the years, it is the same idea introduced in 1988. It is the bailer that is used at more sites than any other bailer currently on the market.

What We Do

Well water (groundwater) is water that is used for public supply, individual household use, irrigation, aquaculture and agriculture and mining, among other smaller things. Roughly 37% of the water used for county and city water departments to supply households and businesses is groundwater. Groundwater provides drinking water to approximately 90% of the rural population and 42% for irrigation in the United States.

Groundwater is exposed to a number of potential volatile organic compounds (VOC’s). For example, a gas station, construction site or farm that uses chemicals can allow volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) to seep into the ground and contaminate groundwater. Furthermore, sometimes wells are placed in sites that were once used to hold septic tanks or the like, and still house a number of different bacteria.

Voss Technologies manufactures products that take samples of groundwater from wells to test them for volatile organic compounds (VOC’s). There is a large variety of volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) that are predominantly present in well water and can cause serious, even life threatening, illnesses and diseases. It is important to check your well water regularly, and in accordance with your state’s regulations.

Products Included: All SingleSample Voss bailers, polyethylene and PTFE products

Polyethylene Material Specifications

PTFE and polyethylene are naturally slick causing no need for lubricants of any kind to be used in any of Voss’ manufacturing processes. The resin in all Voss SingleSample polyethylene products is a natural, virgin, high-density polyethylene. No regrinds are accepted, and the same material is used consistently from run to run. The polyethylene used in Voss SingleSample products contains no plasticizers or additives.

Voss Manufacturing

Voss PTFE bailers are conventional and hand machined out of solid rod and block stock. Bailers are potentially exposed to volatile compounds and may require decontamination. Every Voss bailer is produced under entirely different conditions; the top piece, bottom valve and removal device are injection molded, with all tubing extruded. All of these processes take place off-site, away from the assembly facility.

Voss Production

Once the parts are molded or extruded, they are packaged and shipped directly to our Voss Technologies assembly facility. Prior to assembly, all parts and tubing are immediately washed in Liquinox TM Detergent and rinsed individually with DI water. (This is a precautionary step, taken by Voss to remove any traces of compounds that may have found their way onto the tube through touch-transfer or other means in the manufacturing phase of production).

Following the wash and rinse, all parts and tubing are air-dried in a controlled room and, after completely dried, are assembled and individually inserted into polyethylene bags. All Voss polyethylene bags are 2ml thick that do not contain any plasticizers.

Finally, Voss bailers are packed in natural corrugated boxes that are assembled using exterior tape only, to eliminate glues containing volatiles that are sometimes used in these types of corrugated boxes.
