CULTEC Recharger and Contactor underground septic chambers offer a wastewater management alternative to concrete galleries and conventional pipe and stone systems, especially for sites with space constraints. The Recharger models are high-profile, high-capacity septic chambers. The Contactor models are lower profile, lower capacity chambers, typically used for septic installations with depth restrictions or where larger units may not be approved by the local authority. Their fully open bottoms and perforated sidewalls, along with the use of CULTEC Filter Fabric, offer greater contact with the primary leaching area, thereby delivering maximum infiltration capability. The chambers may reduce overall system size requirements by up to 50 percent when approved by the local authority.

The analyzers can detect thousands of particles and microorganisms, in a sample, in less than a minute, and take a hi-resolution, full color digital image of each one detected while measuring them based on the actual size and shape of the images and characterizing them with up to 32 different parameters - all in real-time.
The 40,000 ACFM collector vents a sand and aggregate fluid bed dryer operating at 140 degrees Farenheit. Inlet loading for the collector is a demanding 15,000 lbs/hr (44 gr/cf), with outlet emissions of .02 gr/cf. The Sly Model STJ-3215-10 collector features a high side inlet and large drop-out section, slowing velocity to remove heavy particulate before it is filtered by the collector’s 16 oz polyester filter bags. Because the dryer being vented occasionally is fired by high sulfur fuel oil, special design considerations were made. The collector has a stainless steel tube sheet, internal epoxy coating and 3" of fiberglass insulation to address potential corrosion.
The Forston Labs Fracking Kit measures increased concentrations of barium ion, chloride ion, nickel ion, sulfate ion, bromide ion, potassium ion, turbidity and changes in acidity. The Kit consists of a LabNavigator (required for all measurements), a full-range heavy-duty pH Sensor, a Turbidity Sensor, a Conductivity Sensor and a clear-language informative user’s guide for the non-chemist. It works by simply connecting one or more of the sensors to the LabNavigator, ensuring the accuracy by using one of the included non-toxic standards, dipping the sensor into a sample of well water and pressing a button which stores the test results for future use. The digital readout on the LabNavigator shows the results in an instant.
Abanaki Corporation' Vapor-Tight, Explosion Proof Groundwater Remediation System is designed to keep explosive vapors from being vented into the atmosphere. The oil skimming system consists of Abanaki's PetroXtractor belt oil skimmer equipped with explosion-proof electrical components, vapor-tight belt housing and a self-sealing, well-casing mounting clamp. Optimum removal rates are achieved using the patent-pending LFO Fuzzy2 belt made from a special oil-attracting material whose tiny hairs increase surface area and collect light hydrocarbons efficiently. Typical applications are remediating oil contamination from groundwater using existing monitoring or remediation wells. The oil skimmer wiper blades scrape oil from the belt and discharge it into an Oil Concentrator, a small gravity separator that removes any trace water from the skimmed oil. The waste oil flows out of the Concentrator into a transfer tank where a pump activated by float switches sends the oil to a customer-provided waste oil vessel.
KIN-TEK Laboratories Inc.
KIN-TEK’s FlexStream Automated Gas Standards Generating System blends calibration standards for acetaldehyde and other oxygenate contaminants in nitrogen or food grade carbon dioxide matrix. Trace Source permeation tubes are used to add known concentrations of the various oxygenate species to a flow of purified food grade CO2. Since concentration specifications are in the ppb range, the diluent CO2 may contain unknown and variable residual contamination. Calibration is based on the known difference in oxygenate concentration due to the addition. A secondary dilution feature gives low ppb and ppt concentrations adjustable over a 400:1 range. Mixture concentrations are traceable to NIST through physical standards.
