Geotech High Volume Probe Scavenger™

The Geotech High Volume Probe Scavenger is an automatic pumping system designed to recover floating hydrocarbons. A specially designed sensor probe differentiates between hydrocarbons and water, allowing for retrieval of virtually 100% water-free oil from wells 8" (20.3 cm) in diameter or larger. The Probe Scavenger product pump recovers the hydrocarbons floating on the water and pumps them to a product recovery tank. When the product recovery tank becomes full, an optional Tankfull Probe is used to shut down the product pump to prevent overflow.

  • For applications in 8" (20.3 cm) and larger diameter wells
  • Lighter-than-water (LNAPL) product recovery
  • Can be used as a stand-alone system or in conjunction with a water table depression pump
  • Reliable around-the-clock operation in automatic mode
  • Sensor technology provides water-free product recovery
  • Remote monitoring and troubleshooting capability with the optional Geotech Environmental Control Module
