Solinst Pneumatic Straddle Packer Setup

Packer Tests And Transient Hydraulic Tomography In India

Experimental Hydrogeological Park Like many countries worldwide, India is facing intense pressures on their groundwater resources. An Experimental Hydrogeological Park established in Hyderabad is helping to better understand the impacts on groundwater. Overseen by the Indo-French Centre for Groundwater Research, the Experimental Hydrogeological Park is located in a multi-disciplinary observatory site of the National Geophysical… Continue Reading »

No-Purge Discrete Zone Sampling

No-Purge Discrete Zone Sampling

The Model 425 Discrete Interval Sampler is a no-purge instrument that allows groundwater sampling from specific depths, without mixing of water from different levels. The stainless steel sampler is pressurized before being lowered to prevent water from entering until the desired zone is reached, pressure is released and the sampler fills with water from the discrete zone.

High Resolution Multi-level Monitoring For Bedrock Aquifers

Beth Parker provided attendees with a glimpse of the extensive research she has been spearheading for the past 20 years. Her work is focused on developing the “Discrete Fracture Network (DFN) Field Approach for Investigating Contaminated Sites in Fractured Sedimentary Rock”. Understanding how groundwater flows and chemicals migrate in these networks requires a unique approach… Continue Reading »

Isolate Discrete Zones For High Resolution Monitoring

Solinst Low Pressure Pneumatic Packers are inflatable seals, ideal for isolating discrete zones in long-screened wells and various other formations for: Groundwater sampling and monitoring Minimizing purge volumes Reducing well development time Slug and pump tests Air sparging (low pressure) Hydraulic conductivity testing, and more Single and Straddle Packers fit 2″ – 5″ (50 mm… Continue Reading »
