Update on Helium Shroud.

Posted by on Aug 18, 2013 in C&T Thought Leadership

C&T designed and built the first commercially available soil gas sampling Helium leak detection shroud in 2011. This device quickly became the industry standard for its simplicity, ease of use and compliance to published standards.

We thought about what we and our clients wanted: a shroud that is light-weight; easy-to-use; efficient and compact.  And so we designed and created a kit that included all materials necessary for a two-person crew to sample 8-12 soil gas wells under Helium in an 8 hour day.  This shroud has been recognized by all users as the easiest Helium leak detector device to use of all available alternatives.

But, we didn’t stop there.  We’ve recently improved the design of our soil gas sampling shroud by incorporating a more compact sampling train and a pressure gauge that allows the sampler to verify the pressure between the train and the well to record measurementsdemonstrating compliance to CA Department of Toxic Substance Control (DTSC) soil gas sampling advisory guidance.

As of spring 2013, C&T’s shrouds have been employed sampling nearly 3,800 soil gas wells at more than 200 sites around the USA.

Today C&T has an inventory of two dozen single train and several duplicate and dual depth Helium leak detection shrouds available to assist clients complete their soil gas sampling projects. C&T will also sample soil gas wells with and without Helium leak detection for clients who need these services.
