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
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.

Charles River Algal Blooms Stop Swimming and Launch a Floating Wetland

The Charles River used to be a swimming hotspot for Cambridge and Boston residents. Decades of industrial pollution and nutrient runoff have degraded water quality and eliminated public swimming in the Lower Charles, but a movement is afoot to get Boston and Cambridge back in the water. One step toward the goal of a safely swimmable river—without the need to obtain a permit, as is now necessary—is detecting and managing the harmful algal blooms that appear on the river. An experimental floating wetland and new research and analysis of water quality data that shows a possible effective detection system for algal blooms on the Charles River are two new steps toward the goal of safe, accessible swimming.

Harnessing the Gulf Stream for Renewable Energy

The Gulf Stream, the massive western boundary current off the east coast of North America, moves water from the Gulf of Mexico north and west across the Atlantic Ocean. There’s a lot of energy in that much moving water and researchers are trying to put it to use. Although the Gulf Stream’s path shifts (researchers say it acts like a wiggling garden hose), in a couple of spots, it stays relatively stable. At one such spot off the coast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, researchers have dropped moorings and research instruments to study the current with the eventual goal of harnessing it for renewable energy.

Buoys in the time of Covid: Delays to important information

In early 2020, Michigan found itself facing one of the worst outbreaks of Covid-19 in the country. Though it’s close to second nature now, businesses, schools and governments were suddenly forced to conduct business without close contact. Universities and research institutions had to pause some scientific research. Whatever was able to continue slowed to a crawl. Around the Great Lakes, a network of buoys monitors dozens of water quality parameters and lake conditions, reporting them in real time. This year, the monitoring season was cut a bit short as Covid-19 restrictions hit in the weeks before buoys were set to be deployed.
