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 Find Link Between Climate Change and Gastrointestinal Illnesses

An understanding of climate change’s effects on the environment has become commonplace and grows every day, but one researcher from Florida State University is looking to answer a new question: What are climate change’s effects on people’s health? In one of the first studies of its kind, Chris Uejio, an assistant professor at FSU, and a team of researchers studied how climate change can affect the roughly 20 million Americans (according to the Environmental Protection Agency) who consume untreated drinking water on a daily basis. Because climate forecasts are predicting higher rainfall rates over the next few decades, coming down in intense storms, Uejio said those flashes could cause flare-ups in waterborne illnesses.

Data Buoys Infographic

We put together this infographic on data buoys for our Spring 2017 edition of the Environmental Monitor ( PDF available online ). Organizations across the globe use data buoy systems to observe and monitor atmospheric and oceanographic conditions in remote locations. Measurements range from air pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction to wave height, water temperature, dissolved oxygen and other water quality parameters. With the help of national and international networks, reliable and comprehensive data sets are made available for research and public safety.
