DI Field Contractors
Below is an alphabetical list of contractors who own and operate Geoprobe® Direct Image® equipment and are able to perform some level of direct sensing. They may have equipment to perform some or all Geoprobe® DI services.
Direct Image contractors listed here have been formally trained by Geoprobe Systems® or one of our authorized representatives on the proper operation of DI equipment. Geoprobe® maintains within the SOP of each system that QA testing must be performed before and after each log by the operator. QA testing ensures that the equipment is operating properly and provides validity to the logs. It is the recommendation of Geoprobe Systems® that the hiring firm requests current system performance data from the potential MIP service providers to ensure the system is capable of detecting specific target compounds and achieving site requirements.

Innovative Brownfield Management (IBM Tech) personnel have been providing clients with direct imaging services since 2001. We own three MIP setups that include one ATV mounted GC to reach locations that would otherwise be unreachable by standard motor vehicles. The other two units are mounted in our direct imaging dedicated van. This provides us with a backup unit for dealing with heavily contaminated sites. If fouled by excessive contamination, one GC can be on continuous purge while work continues with the other unit. In order to keep projects moving as smoothly as possible, IBM Tech is prepared for quick tooling changes, repairs, and maintenance. The dedicated van is equipped with a double purge station in case saturation occurs as a result of excessive contamination, and we carry extra tooling strings (assembled strings of probes, rods and trunklines) ready for rapid changing of probes if necessary. All chemical standards are laboratory prepared by a third-party to control the quality of Standard Tests made before and after each boring. We are prepared for audio-video conferencing and rapid data transmission from the field to the client in the office during and at the termination of each boring. IBM Tech is equipped to perform MIP and MiHPT work at a variety of sites such as brownfields, Superfund, industrial, and military facilities. IBM Tech offers additional services to our clients such as GPS location of borings using sub-decimeter correction services, 3D and statistical analysis of data using Rockware® and Voxler® software, and GPR clearing of boring locations prior to installation.

Our team provides detailed EnISSA-MIP investigations to the consulting community, problem owners or contracters. The EnISSA method uses a GCMS system which is connected to the MIP by an innovative gas sampling system. Individual components can be characterised with low detection limits in the µg/l range. It is possible to qualify and semi-quantify pollutants within the time frame of conventional MIP. Our on-site operators are experienced in the data interpretation and are able to give real-time feedback during a dynamic sampling plan. Typically each 30 cm, concentration data for individual compounds are generated and graphed on-line together with soil structure (EC and/or CPT). This allows the operator to determine the location of the contaminant, the relative concentration and the soil layer in which the contaminant is located.
