  • Isolate & sample up to 7 zones in one borehole

    CMT Multilevel Systems isolate and monitor up to seven discrete zones in one borehole; monitor 7 zones in the 1.7" (43 mm) System; 3 in the narrow 1.1" (28 mm) System. Both options are low cost. The single tube design makes them fast and easy to drill and install in one day. System flexibility allows port locations and monitoring strategy to be finalized right on site. CMT wells are ideal for ...

  • Geodrilling International - Installation of Closed-loop Borehole Probes

    The installation of closed-loop borehole probes is a challenge on almost any project. With many domestic clients requiring a large meterage of borehole to be installed in a small site, Nicholls Boreholes has found that the traditional manual installation of closed-loop borehole probes is no longer a safe or acceptable option. The company has developed the Loop Feeder, a hydraulically-driven, ...

  • Extraction well design for DNAPL recovery.

    The potential for downward migration of dense nonaqueous phase liquid (DNAPL) into deeper portions of a saturated hydrogeologic unit has important implications for successful groundwater remediation. Little information has been published regarding the design of extraction wells that allow DNAPL recovery without simultaneously creating a conduit for cross contamination by vertical migration ...

  • Using the Pencil-Paper Method with a Tablet Computer to Increase Borehole / Well Logging Efficiency

    Traditionally, geologists use pencil and paper when logging soil descriptions, drilling tests, and well diagrams in the field.  We wanted to see if we could speed up this process using a field computer.  We tested a fully ruggedized Yuma2 tablet computer (retail value of $3500) and a consumer grade Dell Venue 8 (retail value $250).  Both computers run a full version of Windows 7 or ...

  • Eolane China Fully Introduces DFM, Design for Manufacturing

    DFM comes from the English abbreviation Design for manufacture. As the name implies, DFM fully considers the needs of manufacturing during the development of new products, so that the products have good manufacturability and reach the highest possible yield at the lowest cost in the shortest time.In the traditional serial product development process, the design aspect always emphasizes the design ...

  • CASE STUDY - Setup and calibration of a three-dimensional numerical multiphase model for design of in-situ remediation of jet fuel with surfactant

    BACKGROUND Storage and pumping of jet-fuel have caused a severe contamination of soil and groundwater at a military facility in Denmark. The contamination was detected in 2001. The Danish Defence has conducted 3 a series of investigations and set up a skimmer system, that has recovered approximately 25 m of jetfuel. In 2005, the recovery stopped, and the remaining jet-fuel is trapped as a ...

  • The use of the Pareto distribution for fracture transmissivity assessment

    For many applications data on the transmissivity distribution of individual fractures are necessary, i.e., discrete fracture network (DFN) modelling of groundwater flow and transport of solutes in fractured rock and design and performance of rock grouting. Using borehole data from the Äspö Hard Rock Laboratory, Sweden, it is shown that evaluated fracture transmissivities from three boreholes at ...

  • IEG multi level sampling well (MLSW) case study - IEG Technologie GmbH

    The MLSW-system is used for the recovery of multiple high-quality samples of soil-gas and groundwater from numerous isolated horizons in a single standard borehole. The system is also used to accurately delineate contamination profiles in three dimensions, which is vital or the design, installation and monitoring of remediation systems. MLSWs also can be used for activly dispersing substances ...

  • Measuring Static Water Levels Made Easier with Eno Scientific

    The Well Sounder 2010 PRO is a sonic water level meter, designed and manufactured by Eno Scientific, to measure static water level in wells, piezometers or boreholes. This portable handheld unit uses sound waves to measure the distance from the top of the well to the water level. This eliminates the need to lower anything into the well. Unlike standard water level tapes these acoustic meters are ...
