Soil Sampling Equipment

Soil sampling is performed for a number of reasons. These include determination of soil contamination, identifying the horizontal and vertical extent of contamination and investigating the relationship between soil and ground water contamination. Soil can be sampled at the surface or below surface depending on the type of information required. Soil is typically divided by depth into two categories: surface and subsurface. Surface soils include the zone between ground level and 24 inches. Subsurface soils include any depth below 24 inches (please note that for radiological sampling, surface soils are considered to be in the top 6 inches, or 15 centimeters only). There are several different types of samplers that can be used to collect a soil sample at any depth.

Soil Moisture Measurements Stevens GroPoint Probe

Stevens GroPoint Soil Moisture Probes

Stevens GroPoint Probes simplify volumetric soil moisture content measurements across multiple depths using a single probe. Designed for vertical installations, the probe is available with multiple sensor segments (each 15 cm long). GroPoint provides true soil profiling quantification, measuring the average moisture content across the entire length of each segment. This unique technology allows monitoring of water movement through the soil continuously, rather than at discrete sensor depths. These sensors are designed to install quickly with minimal soil disruption using an insertion pilot rod and slide hammer tool.

  • Lightweight and sleek design
  • Low power operation – suitable for dedicated applications
  • One SDI-12 address used to read all segments (optional RS-485)
  • Patented TDT technology for scientific-grade accuracy and stability
  • User-calibrated moisture readings using 3rd-order polynomials
  • Fully potted electronics for excellent durability
  • Configure with or without temperature – temp sensors placed
    every 1 or 2 segments

Portable Radon Detectors Durridge RAD7

Durridge RAD7 Radon Detector

The Durridge RAD7 is a portable detector that measures radon and thoron concentrations in water, soil, and air. Commonly used for vapor intrusion entry points and gushers, RAD7 can also be used to investigate soil or groundwater contamination. The instrument is simple to use, offers preprogrammed setups for common tasks, and comes complete with a built-in air pump, rechargeable batteries, and wireless printer.

  • Fastest response and recovery times of any electronic monitor/sniffer on the market.
  • Measures EPA action level of 4 pCi/L in under two hours.
  • Recovers from radon highs in minutes – not hours.
  • Spectrum printout verifies correct operation of instrument in field.
  • Tamper-proof key-lock command secures RAD7 and assures uninterrupted testing.
  • Easily portable: weighs 9.6 pounds (4.35 kg).
  • Display, print, and download radon data in your choice of units.
  • Immunity to build-up of 210pb.
  • CAPTURE software for data retrieval and analysis.
