Continuous Ground Gas Detector
GasClam 2 continuous ground gas monitor collects unmanned continuous ground gas concentration data as well as parameters that are known to control it – subsurface pressure, atmospheric pressure and water level.
Typical applications include:
- Soil contamination and Remediation
- Emergency Response
Using GasClam 2 continuous ground gas detector provides a hierarchy of financial benefits, these include:
- Reduced number of site visits by a field engineer
- Reducing the overall length of monitoring programmes as legislative data requirements can be met quicker
- The third, and largest savings is made by designing appropriate, rather than over-engineered, solutions based on complete and robust data
- Supports and industry recognised best practice approach to ground-gas monitoring
- Battery powered deployment for over 3 months (depending on logging frequency)
- Reduces number of site visits
- Demonstrates regulatory compliance and due diligence
- Optimised site management with insights from continuous monitoring
- GasClam2 ground gas detector fits in to standard 50mm/2” borehole
- Discrete installation
