Part 1 – Pilot Test Equipment Selection

You have finished your assessment and have determined the vertical and lateral extent of impact. Now the real fun begins. What kind of system will I need to clean this mess up? One of the first things to consider is the type of contaminants you have and the chemical properties such as vapor pressure, specific gravity, and solubility. Some other items to be considered before selecting your pilot unit include the following:

Part 2 - Performing The Pilot Test

To get started with the pilot testing we need to take a look at our site conditions and determine what technology we want to try. Typical technologies used for sites like the one described in Part 1 are Dual Phase Extraction (DPE), Air Sparging (AS), and Soil Vapor Extraction (SVE). There are many different versions of each technology some adding Oxygen or Ozone to the sparged air, some also adding microbes.

Part 3 - Full Scale System Selection

With the pilot test data in hand it is now time to select the equipment for our full scale system. First let's take a look at what we have learned about the site:
