Portable Electric Sampling System

Dedicated Electric Sampling System

Dedicated or portable sampling equipment,
which should I use?

Last month Geotech described the benefits of dedicated sampling systems, but not how to determine if they would work best for your site.

What follows are some key questions to determine whether dedicated or portable equipment is the best option for your project:

  • What is the overall duration of the project in years?
  • How long will you be responsible for the monitoring/sampling of the site
  • What is the overall sampling frequency for this site?
  • What are you sampling for (organics vs. inorganic or both)?
  • How many wells are there to sample?
  • What are the well diameters on this site?
  • Are low flow sampling protocols an option for this site?
  • Is there likelihood for sampling site expansion?
  • What are your lab costs for a suite of samples on a per well basis?
  • What is your sampling QA/QC ratio, (Equipment blanks, etc)?
  • What is the billable rate for your sampling personnel?
  • How much time is spent sampling each well now, (average)?
  • Approximately how much time per well is spent in the field for decontamination of portable equipment, QA/QC sampling, logistics of rental equipment, etc.?
  • What is the likelihood of cross contamination from portable equipment at this site?
  • What would be your overall costs for re-sampling a single well?
  • What is the up-front cost of a dedicated sampling system on a per well basis (approx.)?
  • With the overall savings in time, multiplied by the billable man hour rate plus the savings in lab costs, for field QA/QC samples, how long will it take to recoup the costs of dedicated equipment?

After answering the above questions contact Geotech to find out accurately which system will work best for you, dedicated or portable.
