InfraCal TOG/TPH Analyzers allow for TPH (Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons) in soil testing at remediation sites such as leaking underground storage tanks and produced water evaporation ponds. Site managers can avoid having costly soil remediation equipment sit idle while waiting for off-site lab results. Sampling requires a few simple steps that can be performed by non-technical personnel. The soil is mixed with the extraction solvent, shaken, filtered, and then presented to the InfraCal Analyzer for measurement....
Previous land uses or accidental spills can result in Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) contamination of soils. Volatile and semi-volatile compounds can then permeate through the soil and may persist for several years. This contamination can be traced and measured using our Soil Probes in conjunction with our VOC sorbent tubes. Soil probes are also useful in checking the effectiveness of remediation actions. This monitoring technique provides a cost-effective identification of hazardous gases.
Over the past few decades, soil monitoring has become increasingly important. Environmental factors such as climate change, dwindling water resources, and threatened habitats are driving the need to monitor the environment and implement better policies to protect it. Many natural processes in the environment are driven by or in some ways related to soil hydrological processes. Monitoring soil moisture conditions provides important information for the protection of, and in the understanding of local and regional...
Low flow groundwater sampling is a methodology used around the world to simulate ambient flow conditions and take water quality readings. A wide variety of pumps are used to draw a sample from the well such as bladder, inertial or peristaltic pumps and usually combined with a flow controller. Once the sampling methodology for your site has been selected, then choosing the right multi-parameter probe is vital.
With a single TROMINO®:
- H/V (subsoil resonances)
- SASW, MASW, small scale refraction seismics
- Vibration monitoring (e.g. UNI 9916, DIN 4150)
- Passive modal analysis of structures (mode frequencies, mode shapes)
With more than one TROMINO®:
- SASW, MASW, refraction seismics
- ReMiTM, ESAC, SPAC, other passive and active spatial correlation methods
- Vibration monitoring (e.g. UNI 9916, DIN 4150)
- Full modal analysis of structures (both passive and active)
With SoilSpy Rosina you can perform (depending on accessories):
- Classic P and S wave prospection (refraction, reflection, tomography)
- Surface wave prospection (SASW, MASW, ReMiTM, ESAC, SPAC, other spatial correlation methods of ambient noise or active signals)
- In-hole surveys (downhole, crosshole)
Determination of the pH value provides information about the acid or base action of the soil solution. This in turn is enormously important for the nutrient supply and microbial activity of the soil. For example, many metals (trace elements) are considerably more mobile in acidic soils. If the soil pH values are very low, toxic levels can soon be reached and these can damage the roots of plants. On the other hand, excessively high pH values quickly lead to a shortage of trace elements because of immobilization.
There are a lot of waterproofing systems inside a building. Their only purpose is to tight
Waterproofing systems are the major component to protect a building and the people inside against water and moisture. To be able to protect, they have to tight for the whole lifespan of the building. Unfortuneately there are a lot of reasons, why waterproofing systems can fail. Eventually, every waterproofing system starts leaking.
effective maintenance needs reliable information
To do maintenance on waterproofing systems,...
The reasons for testing water quality in groundwater are numerous. Monitoring water quality and conducting tests is a good way to gather data on aquifer hydraulics. It can also be used to monitor parameters such as rhodamine, which helps to understand movement of underground water. Human activities can have an impact on groundwater quality, and conducting tests in this field can help to track these effects. Leachate from landfill and fertiliser can both find their way into groundwater. It is important to monitor...
Measuring groundwater level or depth-to-water is critically important for identifying long term trends, including declining water levels, saltwater intrusion, seasonal variations, aquifer recharge, artificial aquifer storage and recovery, and level status for drinking water. Receiving groundwater data via remote data transmission from one of the many OTT telemetry options available saves time and resources spent in the field.
The migration of magma towards the surface in a volcano is usually accompanied by the release of gas that was previously dissolved in the magma itself. In an open conduit volcano, most of the gas escapes through the main conduits of the volcano and then through the craters. However, a significant proportion (approximately 10%) of the total quantity of gas can escape laterally through faults and fractures that are normally present in the flanks of a volcano. Therefore, increases in the amount of gas emitted...
Being able to trust your instruments to make quick, easy and accurate measurements in the field is key when dealing with regulatory requirements. The InfraCal2 infrared analyzer is the choice of experts for measuring oil in produced water; oil contamination in soil; and fats oil and greases in waste streams.
Collect the most accurate short- and long-term water level and water quality data for your project using In-Situ equipment. We design and manufacture every instrument to perform under harsh conditions for years.
The Sorbisense method allows for measuring the average concentration of substances in groundwater over a period of up to 1 month with only one sample.
The system provides methods for measurements in both unsaturated and saturated zone and provides access to dynamic boundaries of contaminants and more realistic risk assessments. For example, through direct measurements of seepage from contaminants and by continuous measurement of emissions from cropland.
