How to Sample Free Product (Hydrocarbon)

Use a Hydrocarbon Recovery EcoBailer

Hydrocarbon Recovery EcoBailer

How to Sample Free Product (Hydrocarbon) is easily solved using a Clear PVC Hydrocarbon Recovery EcoBailer. It is designed to help remove the L.N.A.P.L, floating hydrocarbon product from monitoring wells without removing water as well. The Hydrocarbon Recovery EcoBailer uses a specially designed ball which floats in water but sinks in in hydrocarbons. The Hydrocarbon Recovery EcoBailer is made from the same durable, rigid PVC as the regular Clear PVC EcoBailer and so has all the same great qualities.

  • available in 1.5 inch diameter X 3 feet length
  • faster sinking than polyethylene bailers
  • clear tube allows sample inspection within the bailer
  • requires less material to produce, resulting in less waste and cost to the environment
  • captures only hydrocarbons, not water
  • 935 ml
  • 24 Hydrocarbon Recovery EcoBailers per Case

Procedure For Collecting Free Product (Hydrocarbons) In An EcoBailer

 

  • Use a clear PVC bailer to see the product
  • Attach a rope or cord to the bailer
  • Lower the bailer slowly into but not past the product layer
  • Pull the bailer back to surface for inspection and/or dumping
