Our Monitoring Equipment

Power Pack

The power pack is a self-contained three cylinder diesel stationary motor with a K30 series air compressor and hydraulic motor. The air compressor provides the pumping energy source to the Airwell pump and the hydraulic motor powers the hose reel to raise and lower the pump.

Hose & Reel

The compressed air and hydraulics are connected to a stainless steel hose reel. On the side of the hose reel is a manual lever, moving the lever down lowers the sampling pump into the bore casing, moving the lever up raises the pump from the bore casing.

The hydraulic lever has a dead man’s handle, once you let go of the lever the brake is applied to the reel and the unit will not rotate. This is a key safety feature of the Airwell sampling system.

R7 1” ID hose is used to carry the water, airline and signal cable between the pump and hose reel. By using a single R7 hose eliminates the possibilities of contamination being trapped within multiple hose bundles bound together with duct tape or cable ties.

Hose lengths are made to requirements from 30 metres to 110 metres in length.

The Pumps

Airwell have a range of pumps and sizes to suite your requirements.  Pump sizes include:

  • 1 ¾” (45mm) dia  x 1 or 2m long pump goes down 50mm casing diameter
  • 3 ½” dia  by 1.25m long sampling pump and allows for much higher flow rates to be achieved in larger diameter bores.

All pumps are interchangeable on our standard hose reel system.

Disinfecting the pump and internals of the hose between bores is done by simply placing the pump in a container with a Decon 90 solution or similar.
