AquaLocate - Model GF6 - Seismoelectric Exploration System
The GF6 Seismoelectric Exploration System is ideal for finding resistive liquid (fresh groundwater, oil, natural gas) under layers of rock, sediments and soils. The process works by sending a seismic pulse (sound wave) into the ground. If liquid exists, the seismic pulse will move through it and disturb the natural ions in the liquid. The ions then give off an electrical signal the GF6 Exploration System detects and translates into data. Depending on the data received between the seismic pulse and the aquifer, the results can indicate potential depth, yield (fresh water) and thickness. The GF6’s technology is not just for groundwater and well water surveys, the GF6 has been sold worldwide to businesses and research organizations conducting civil and environmental engineering work, frac water development, oil and gas surveys, geological research, water table depth research, minerals exploration and more. How can the GF6 help you?.
Simple. Portable. Accurate.
Our mission is to promote an easier and more accurate approach to conducting groundwater surveys around the world. We manufacture and distribute the most advanced seismoelectric technology – GF6 Exploration System
Easy to Use
The GF6 Seismoelectric Exploration System was designed to be durable, easy to use and accurate. We wanted it to be used by anyone willing to learn and be able to withstand multiple years in harsh environments. Nearly anyone can learn to use our system. Non-profit organizations use the GF6 to find water in third world countries. Find out more about becoming certified to use it for your own project
Dozens of soundings a day
The remarkably high signal to noise ratios achieved with the patented design means that productivity is high. Up to thirty sounding sites or more can be accomplished by one operator in a full day of work.
Adapted for Deep Investigations
The developers of the GF6 Exploration System have adapted the signal to be stronger and more focused, making it suitable for deep investigations. Using the PL14 Seismoelectric Exploration system, we have observed signals from liquid underground from depths of up to 2,000 meters. Depending on the local geology at depth, the PL14 is capable of imaging a strong resistive liquid zone to nearly 3000 meters.
Estimates depth of zone(s)
The GF6 Exploration System collects data from any detected resistive liquid source. Using basic knowledge of local geology an operator can provide accurate depth estimates. If multiple zones (aquifers) are detected then the approximate depth of each zone can be determined.
Data can be mapped
Using the data gathered from the GF6 we can create maps and profiles showing the groundwater (aquifer) depth and thickness. We can also develop contour maps, locate. problem zones in major excavation sites, and when systematic surveys are performed along traverses or in grids, we can map the aquifer's lateral variability.
Flow rate estates
The quality and potential quantity of the aquifer can be estimated based on the results gathered by the GF6 Seismoelectric Exploration System. The GF6 compares the signal bandwidth and amplitude against the aquifer's overall permeability, these are supported by thousands of observations over the past two decades. With high quality research and calibration data, an operator can provide amazingly accurate yield estimates as well.
