The same cap fits either the coated or uncoated bottle.
A true 1-Liter sized, plastic safety coated, amber glass bottle with a polyseal cone lined cap is used.
Additional Bottle Info and Pictures You can order these 1-Liter plastic coated bottles from Qorpak Inc. Catalog number GLA-00959 is for a case of 12 bottles or catalog number GLA-00958 is for a case of 30 bottles.
Alternately, if coated bottles are unavailable, uncoated bottles can be used.
Uncoated bottles do not ship as well as the plastic coated bottles.
SF bottles can be under pressure caused by the water warming up and expanding.
Use of uncoated bottles is not recommended but will not cause any chemical or sampling problems.
Do not submerge the bottle and cap combination in a bucket for filling and capping.
It is important that water NOT enter the area behind the cone seal in the cap.
The area behind the cone seal allows the water to expand as it warms up without breaking the bottle. If the bottles heat up excessively, the water will expand and may crack the bottle.
Catalog number CPS-33E-B-PC-PS is a 33-430 size polyseal cone lined cap which fits the bottle.
The filling and capping procedure for SF is done in the open atmosphere.
