The Solinst Model 103 Tag Line uses a weight attached to a laser marked cable, which is mounted on a sturdy free-standing reel. The 1.6 mm stranded stainless steel wire line is primarily used during the installation of monitoring wells to measure depth to the bottom of a well, or the depth to the top of a backfill sand or bentonite layer.
The Tag Line comes in standard lengths of 30 m to 300 m. Other lengths are available by request. The cable is mounted on a sturdy free-standing reel with a carrying handle, weight holder and brake. It is also perfect for using as a Bailer Reel with your Stainless Steel Bailer as you no longer need to estimate the depth of the sample.
Features & Benefits
Markings are clearly and accurately laser etched every 1/2 foot or every 10 centimeters of the cable. The laser markings allow the cable to run smoothly over the Tape Guide.
A Tape Guide is provided with each Tag Line. It can be placed over the top of the well casing for ease of use and to protect the wireline from damage on rough edges. When used properly the Tape Guide also increases reading accuracies.
316 Stainless Steel Tag
The standard stainless steel tag weight is 68 grams and measures 19 mm x 30 cm. A narrow tag weight 13 mm x 30 cm, weighing 30 grams, is also an option. Tag weights have tapered ends to minimize hang-ups during deployment and return to surface, and can be clipped on and off the cable. This allows the use of the reel mounted marked cable for other uses, such as bailer, or pump, and packer deployment.
- Accurately measure depth to backfill during well construction.
- Measured safety support line for deployment of pumps, samplers and packers.
