Abstract : A liquid sampler, and particularly, a liquid sampler for sampling liquid containing frazil ice, employs a sampling tube open at both top and bottom which can be thrust into the liquid to be sampled and a membrane-type cylindrical valve which is closed by pulling a single string which is looped about the cylindrical membrane. A cutting shoe at the lower end of the sampling tube permits cutting through ice for obtaining the sample. (Author)
