Geoprobe® Soil Vapor Implants: An Overview
Geoprobe® is well known as the OEM of technical drilling machines and tooling – as a result, they have a tremendous amount of experience with soil gas. In fact, their direct push machines were initially created specifically for extracting and sampling soil gas. Before Geoprobe® made its mark on the industry, most teams conducted soil gas collection by manually advancing NPT pipe into the hole via a slam bar. A jack – like those used with cars – would then be used to remove the NPT pipe. This process is nowhere near as efficient or clean as the Post Run Tubing (PRT) system developed by Geoprobe®. Read on for a breakdown of the benefits of the PRT system and permanent soil vapor implants.
The Post Run Advantage
Geoprobe® soil vapor implants carry the distinct advantage of “Post Run” installation. Rather than being carried in the rod during the boring process, these implants are inserted down the bore only after the desired depth has been reached. From there, it is simple to attach the implant to the anchor point used during driving. Finally, once the probe rods are removed from the hole, the implant and its tubing remain secured at the bottom.
Set at Any Depth
As a result of this “Post Run” process, Geoprobe® soil vapor implants can be anchored at any depth achieved by a soil probe. This grants teams much more freedom in the sampling process.
Wide Variety & Range of Applications
Last but not least, Geoprobe® permanent soil vapor implants come in a wide range of lengths and sizes. These affordable and convenient devices are used for anything from groundwater sampling and soil gas monitoring to air sparging.
