Manual Slide Hammer
To install Multilevel Drive-Point Piezometers inexpensively, the Manual Slide Hammer can be used. The 21 lb (9.5 kg) slide hammer and all other equipment can easily be transported to most sites.
A heavy duty drive head is used, on which the slide hammer impacts, and a tubing by-pass ensures that the tubing does not get damaged during installation.
Solinst supplies 3/4" NPT Delrin® caps, and stainless steel couplings and extensions. These accessories can also be locally sourced at plumbing and hardware stores.
Multilevel Drive-Point Piezometers are suitable for many sites. The depth limitations vary with soil conditions and the drive method used.
High Quality Groundwater and Soil Gas Samples
The 615ML Multilevel Drive-Point Ports have a dual barb stem to allow the connection of 3/8" OD (9.5 mm) or 1/4" OD (6 mm) polyethylene or PTFE-lined tubing to create up to 3 or 6 monitoring zones, respectively. Sample water enters the port, passes into the stem, and up into the monitoring tube.
Groundwater Sampling Within Narrow Diameters
Peristaltic Pump, Model 410
The Peristaltic Pump uses the suction lift principle. Suitable for 1/4" (6 mm) ID or larger diameters. The Peristaltic Pump provides a regulated and steady flow. It will lift water up to 32 ft. (10 m) at sea level.
Narrow Cable Water Level Meters
Water levels can be measured in a 615ML Multilevel Drive-Point Piezometer using a Model 102 or 102M Mini Laser Marked Cable Water Level Meter with a P4 (4 mm) probe.
