EON Rents Helium Gas Meters for Soil Vapor Leak Detection
To ensure a representative soil vapor sample is recovered the vapor point installation is tested for leaks. The space at the surface around the vapor point is flooded with helium, usually under a shroud. A preliminary sample is drawn from the vapor point and quickly analyzed using this accurate and highly portable helium meter. The presence of helium in the initial sample indicates a leak between the surface and the vapor point intake.
- The ION Science G3 meter uses Photoionization Detector technology to measure the helium concentration in the vapor pulled from the installation. The standard calibration is in equivalent units of helium.
- Want to find leaks involving other gasses? The G3 can be calibrated to other specific gasses prior to rental for other leak detection applications.
