Soil Vapor Sampling
ESP's 1.5-inch Soil Vapor Sampler utilizes the Post Run Tubing (PRT) system. The PRT fitting utilizes o-ring connections to ensure a vacuum-tight seal. The soil vapor sample is drawn through the expendable point holder and PRT adapter into the sample tubing. ESP's stainless steel PRT fitting accepts various tubing sizes.

Solid augers from Mills Machine are manufactured with thick steel flighting and a heavy steel center shaft, and have a variety of cutting heads available. Used for utility, industrial, mining and construction applications, the augers are available in diameters from 3 1/2 inches to 48 inches. The normal length is 5 feet, with 3- and 4-foot lengths readily available, and special lengths as required. Mills Machine Co.
Fuel Fluorescence Detector
Vertek's dual downhole fuel fluorescent detector (FFD) detects the fluorescence produced by aromatic hydrocarbons when excited by an ultraviolet light source. The system is said to significantly reduce the time needed to detect and delineate the extent of hydrocarbon fuel spills or leaking storage units. The FFD provides a continuous, real-time output of fluorescence over the entire depth of the investigation. Applied Research Associates Inc.
New Piston Sampler
The Piston Sampler from AMS collects discrete interval specific samples in difficult sampling conditions, such as flowing/heaving sands and swelling clays using any direct push system. The system also can be used in soils below ground water. The Piston Sampler is designed to prevent liner failure during sample collection. The use of either or both of the two core catcher options can minimize the chance of loss of the soil sample. AMS Inc.
Monitoring Well Caps
The Ex-Cap, available from Enviro Design Products, comes in 2- and 4-inch sizes. When removing the quick connect device, the Ex-Cap is virtually water- and air-tight in both directions, but when the connection device is secured with its snap on-off method, it is possible to inject or withdraw from the appointed vessel.
