Direct Imaging – MiHPT
Initial site investigations involve a number of costs; drilling and sampling, laboratory sample analysis and IDW disposal are only a few. Not to mention the additional cost of a second or third mobilization when laboratory results reveal that your contaminate plume has not yet been fully delineated, or your sampling methods dictate the installation of a system that doesn’t accurately remediate the source of your contaminate plume.
The Geoprobe® Membrane Interface Probe/Hydraulic Profiling Tool provides an on site qualitative analysis of contaminate plumes before collecting laboratory samples or generating IDW for disposal. Soils are sampled in 6-inch intervals to pinpoint the contaminate source along a vertical scale instead of relying on averaged water quality information from the typical 10-foot long 10-slot monitoring well screen zone. The Geoprobe® MiHPT System can provide logging of MIP, HPT and EC measurements. The direct imaging tool provides continuous soil screening with the following sensors:
- PID – Photoionization Detector
- FID – Flame Ionization Detector
- XSD – Halogen Specific Detector
- EC – Electrical Conductivity Detector – Conductivity of soils can help determine soil composition
- HPT – Flow and pressure measurements can produce estimated K values and help to confirm soil composition
Off Road Access
From our experience drilling since 1969 we know that not every site investigation is in a flat paved parking lot. Our Geoprobe® MiHPT system is skid mounted and can be placed in the back of a UTV for your off road projects. For more information about our direct imaging capabilities, please call one of our project managers today.
