Contaminated Land Measurements

Contaminated Land Gas MeasurementContaminated soil is a problem for ground waters as well as for residential areas constructed on former industrial areas or brownfield sites. Chlorinated VOC’s in particular present significant heath problems when evaporating from contaminated land into buildings.Potentially contaminated areas can be screened by drilling wells into the ground and measuring evaporating gases from these wells. Typical contaminated soil gas components include: 1,1,1-Trichloroethane, Trichloroethylene, Tetrachloroethylene, Chloroform, Benzene, Toluene, p-Xylene, 1,1-Dichloroethylene, cis-Dichloroethylene, Perchloroethylene, Dichloromethane.

The ability to rapidly analyse (ppb – ppm) soil samples on-site is a major advantage for contaminated land assessment and remediation projects. The measurement of the concentration and type of organic pollution enables site staff to make quick, informed decisions without incurring the delays and costs associated with laboratory analysis; it also saves downtime and can avoid exposure of groundwork crew to hazardous VOCs.
