In-Situ Inc.’s new Water Level Meter 100 and 200 include static and drawdown modes that allow users to switch from static level readings to drawdown mode for low-flow and pump tests.
The IP68-rated probe can be submerged in depths of up to 300 metres (1,000 feet) to determine the bottom of the well. It features a safety disconnect that allows the probe to be released if it gets trapped inside a well. The quick-connect probe can then be easily and reliably replaced in the field, with no need to send the meter in for repair, said the company, a manufacturer of water level instrumentation, in a news release.
“The In-Situ Water Level Meter 100 and 200 were designed from the ground up to provide simple and accurate measurements with the quality and ease-of-use you’ve come to expect from In-Situ. To ensure that our users are prepared for any situation, we’ve added static and drawdown modes as a standard to both models. Additionally, an integrated well hanger and roller bar save time and money by both protecting the tape and speeding deployment,” said Ben Kimbell, vice-president of research and development for In-Situ.
The Water Level Meter 100 has Kevlar-reinforced polyethylene tape and is laser engraved to provide a long-lasting solution. The Water Level Meter 200 uses ASME-certified high-tensile steel tape that is encased in a polyethylene jacket. This combination provides pull strength and durability.
Both models include a full five-year warranty and are offered in lengths ranging from 30 metres (100 feet) to 600 metres (2,000 feet).
