Solinst Canada Announces New Interface Meter Design

Dec. 11, 2013

Solinst Canada Ltd. is pleased to announce the release of the New Model 122 Interface Meter, with improved design and performance.

The new Model 122 Oil/Water Interface Meter has a redesigned probe, reel electronics, and laser-marked PVDF flat tape, making it even more reliable and easy to use when measuring floating or sinking hydrocarbon/product layers in water (LNAPL and DNAPL).

The new Standard Model 122 Interface Meter features Solinst PVDF flat tape that is precisely laser marked every 1 one-hundredth of a foot, or each millimeter, certified traceable to national standards. The extremely durable, corrosion, chemical, and stain-resistant tape is easy to decontaminate and ideal to use when measuring in wells and tanks, at refineries, landfills or remediation sites. Tape lengths up to 1,000 feet (300 m) are available.

The five-eighths-inch-diameter (16 mm) probe is pressure-proof up to 500 psi. The probe clearly detects when it enters product or water, with an accuracy of 1 two-hundredth of a foot (1 mm).  It uses optical refraction and electrical conductance to determine product and water interfaces.

The reel electronics are more effective, now only needing one easy-to-replace 9-V alkaline battery to operate. The circuitry is automatically tested when the meters are powered on, and there is an auto-off after five minutes of inactivity. The Solinst Interface Meter is certified intrinsically safe for use in explosive environments, and is ATEX certified.

A 122M Mini Interface Meter is also available with narrow polyethylene flat tape on a compact reel.

Microplastics that were fragmented from larger plastics are called secondary microplastics; they are known as primary microplastics if they originate from small size produced industrial beads, care products or textile fibers.
