The water production company uses various sizes of VebaBoxes to transport their samples after sampling. They do so with specially designed sample cars. Different routes for sampling in the distribution route and driven every day, and they are collected at a fixed location. The samples are transferred to larger coolers there. At the water production location, there are climate chambers. The samples are collected by the laboratory from there. Water samples must be transported between 35°F / 2°C and 46°F / 8°C. That is why it’s important that the samples can not only be cooled, but also heated during transport on cold days so that they cannot freeze.
