Compressors are used for a number of purposes on remediation projects including:
- Operation of pneumatic pumps for groundwater extraction or chemical injection
- Air sparging or bio-sparging where compressed air is injected into the subsurface to remediate petrochemical saturated soil or impacted groundwater
- Ozone injection where compressed air is used to create ozone for injection
A number of parameters need to be determined prior to selecting a compressor for a specific purpose.
Some of the typical parameters are as follows:
