Tracer Gas Testing/Study

Principals of Total Environmental Associates have extensive experience in tracer gas testing studies. Unlike others, we utilized a highly specialized state-of-the-art technology so that we are capable of obtaining continuous real-time data from up to 12 sampling locations on a computer screen. With this technology, we are able to solve extremely complicated odor/pollution pathway issues immediately on site without any lab analysis, thus avoid expensive lab fees, prolonged laboratory turnaround time, human sampling errors, and shipping/handling contamination.

State-Of-The-Art Multipoint Monitoring System

Tracer gas (sulfur hexafluoride SF6) is chemically inert and not naturally occurring, making it ideal for detection in trace concentrations. SF6 is detected at the parts per billion (ppb) level using Innova 1412, a photo-acoustic infrared gas monitor. LumaSense's Multipoint Sampler 1309 is used in conjunction with the gas monitor to provide a multi-channel monitoring system. The 1309 greatly increases the monitoring capabilities of the gas monitors by drawing air-samples through tubing from up to 12 different sampling points and delivering the samples to the monitor.
