Sm.OIL Mini Oil Water Interface Meter

If you cannot find the part number in the documentation please provide detail. Specific to this item, it could include part number or application detail, (ex. 20 meters of cable, or 20 litres of volume)

Small size but big features. Heron’s small interface meter is an economical unit that will measure to 60ft(20m) below the top of the well, making it ideal for shallow wells or high water tables. The Sm.Oil interface meter measures the thickness of floating or sinking layers of hydrocarbon products in the groundwater. Many of these instruments are used by refineries, oil spill and remediation companies, land fills and site clean up projects.

Sm.OIL Interface Meter is a well balanced mini unit to obtain the measurement of the thickness of product floating on the surface of the water

The Heron Sm.OIL is certified intrinsically safe for use in explosive environments. Using the grounding cable ensures safety when working in hazardous environments. The Sm.OIL is a precision instrument used to accurately measure the thickness of product layers (LNAPL) as thin as 1mm (1/200ft) floating on the water table and sinking layers (DNAPL) quickly, easily and accurately. The fully pressure proof probe is 5/8” (1.6cm) in diameter and is ideal for wells, piezometers and direct push equipment. The Sm.OIL will signal oil with a solid tone and light. The Sm.OIL will signal water with an intermittent tone and a flashing light.

Obtaining Product Measurements with the Sm.OIL
To obtain the measurement of the thickness of product floating on the surface of the water, lower the probe into the well until the tone and light signal liquid. If there is product present the electronic module will indicate with a solid tone and a solid light. Take your measurement by reading the tape at your datum point. Continue to lower the probe into the well, when the tone and light become intermittent you have encountered water. Pull the probe back up slowly taking your reading at the product/water interface. If no product is present in your well only the intermittent tone and light will signal. DNAPLS can be detected by continuing to lower the probe to the bottom of well noting any solid tone and light signals.
