  • Return on Investment Using MANTECH Multi-Parameter Analysis Systems - Case Study

    Since 2008 Eurofins has been using MANTECH systems at various facilities around the world. Their first system ran 200,000 samples in five years. The unit analyzed 7 different parameters per sample and operated 24 hours/day, 7 days/week. This generated €5,000,000 in revenue. Their initial investment was €60,000. The system discussed in this case study analyses pH, conductivity, ...

  • Sampling trace-level organic solutes with polymeric tubing. Part 2. Dynamic studies

    Parker and Ranney present the results of laboratory tests focused on investigation the potential positive or negative biases associated with using polymetric tubing to collect groundwater samples. This paper, the second in a series, focuses on the effects under dynamic (i.e., pumping) conditions. They show that negative biases are a function of the plymer material, the hydrophobicity of the ...

  • Analysis of Stack Emissions Using VOST Air Sampling Tubes and Capillary GC

    United States EPA SW-846, Method 0030, Volatile Organic Sampling Train (VOST), describes the sampling of emissions for volatile compounds from hazardous waste incinerator stacks. Supelco's VOST air sampling tubes are designed to fulfill the method requirements and provide low background levels.               ...

  • A Simulation of Tube Sampling Effects on the Stiffness of Clays

    The effect of tube sampling disturbance on the prefailure behavior of reconstituted kaolin was investigated in the triaxial cell. Previously published forms of stress paths followed by normally consolidated and overconsolidated clays during simulated sampling have been substantiated. After the initial stresses were restored, the behavior of the undisturbed clay at small strains (up to 0.1%) was ...

  • Monitor Organophosphorus Pesticides in Air, Using ORBO-49P Tubes and Capillary GC

    A sampling tube containing Supelpak-20 resin and a glass fiber filter effectively adsorbs and releases five organophosphorous pesticides (chlorpyrifos, diazinon, dichlorvos, malathion, parathion) in vapor or aerosol form in air.  At a sampling rate of 1L/min, 8 hour samples can be taken for all of these pesticides except malathion.  Short term (15 min) samples can be taken at the same ...

  • The Effects of Centerline Tube Sampling Strains on the Undrained Behavior of Two Stiff Overconsolidated Clays

    Some of the effects of tube sampling of stiff clays are examined. A strain path that simulates strains at the centerline of a tube sample as it is captured by a penetrating sampling tube was applied in the triaxial apparatus. Undrained triaxial strain path tests were performed on two stiff overconsolidated clays that had not previously been subjected to tube sampling. The response of the clays ...
