Details

The ORS Interface Probe is a handheld, battery powered device for measuring depth to water or oil in tanks or wells. The ORS Interface Probe can be used in numerous applications including measuring oil and water levels in monitoring wells, and obtaining accurate measurements of water levels in cascading wells.

This rugged and durable probe is accurate to 1/100' and can detect hydrocarbon layers as thin as 1/200'. Constructed of NEMA 3 weather resistant aluminum, it can fit into wells as small as 0.75" in diameter. The ORS interface probe is intrinsically safe and Factory Mutual Approved for use in Class 1, Division 1, and Group D hazardous locations. Includes tape cleaner attachment for preventing dirt and hydrocarbons from entering the reel assembly, probe, and measuring tape.

Questions & Answers

| Ask a Question
Can the probe be damaged by inorganic compounds in the water?
The standard probe is unaffected by most inorganic reagents. See the manual for a chemical resistance chart. If the resistance is poor, it is recommended to use the ORS Chemical Interface probe.
What size is the probe? How small of a well can I use it in?
The standard and chemically-resistant probes are 1" (25.4 mm) diameter cylinders that can be used in wells as small as 1-1/8" (29mm) in diameter. The small probe is 5/8" (0.625 mm) in diameter and can be used in wells with a 1" (25.4 mm) opening.
Does the probe issue a visual or audio alert when it senses liquid?
Both. An oscillating alarm indicates water and a continuous alarm indicates hydrocarbon.
How often should I clean my probe?
After every measurement, the probe should be washed in Alconox detergent, rinsed in distilled water, washed again in Alconox and rinsed for a final time in distilled water, Also clean all accessible parts of the reel assembly. Under some circumstances, a more aggressive cleaner may be required to prevent cross-contamination of wells.
How do I install the new prism assembly?
Ensure the probe is dry and remove the old prism. Keep the probe pointed downward, and thread the new prism into place, securing it finger tight. Then use a 3/4" wrench to firmly seat the o-ring. Be careful not to over tighten.
Why does my probe keep turning off?
The ORS interface probe includes a self shut-off circuit. If the probe has not sensed liquid within 4 minutes of powering on, it will automatically switch to a low power mode. Turn the probe OFF then ON again to restore full power.

Researchers Track Glacial Meltwater On Its Surprising Journey

While the scientific community has formed its consensus on how ice sheets are shrinking in and around Greenland, some researchers are tracking what happens to the meltwater as it drains into the ocean each summer. Their study, published in Nature Geoscience by an interdisciplinary team of biologists, oceanographers and hydrologists, used computer models to simulate the meltwater to see where currents take it and what effect it could have on the ocean. Renato Castelao, one of the researchers and an associate professor of marine science for the University of Georgia, said one of the biggest discoveries of the study was the surprising final destinations of the ice sheets as they melt into the ocean each summer.

Ice Fishing With A SondeCAM Underwater Fishing Camera

Thinking of hitting the ice with a SondeCAM underwater fishing camera? Due to its rugged design, you won't have to worry about it handling the harsh elements. However there are a few simple tricks to get the most out of a FishSens SondeCAM while ice fishing. You won't have to do anything to modify the SondeCAM itself, but you are going to have to bring a few extra things. Most importantly we are going to need a power source. Unless you are hauling your gear with a truck, you'll want something more portable than the battery you used in the boat. Pick up an inexpensive and maintenance-free 12-volt, 9-amp battery. It is going to provide plenty of power, but will be much lighter and take up less space.

Size Them Up With A SondeCAM Underwater Fishing Camera

We've all felt the frustration of weeding through a school of dinks to catch a "keeper." Often the small fish outnumber the bigger ones and they are typically more aggressive. Sometimes there's no choice but to deal with it, as is often the case with open water fishing. However a frozen lake involves a vertical presentation and a stable platform, it's a perfect situation to pick and choose which fish you want. Once you locate a school and get set up it's time to start sizing them up with a FishSens SondeCAM underwater fishing camera. It can be mind-blowing just how big some of these schools of fish are and also how outnumbered fish of a desirable size can be.
