Solinst Low Pressure Packers

Item No: Solinst Low Pressure Packers

Model 800

These simple inexpensive packers inflate with a hand pump and are
available in 1.8" and 3.9" (46 mm and 99 mm) diameters. Primarily for
short term use in 2" and 4" (51 mm and 102 mm) monitoring wells, they
can also be used in smooth boreholes and wells with 1.9 - 5" (48 - 127
mm) inside diameters. Typical inflation pressures for the 1.8" (46 mm)
packers are from 20 - 40 psi (140 - 275 kPa) above hydrostatic pressure,
and from 20 - 30 psi (140 - 205 kPa) for the 3.9" (99 mm) packers. The
Packers utilize a gland of black carbon reinforced rubber (BCR) on a
Sch 80 PVC body. They are lowered on flexible low density polyethylene
(LDPE) tubing or a rigid PVC drop pipe. If a rigid drop tube is not required
for your application, it is recommended to attach a safety line to the
eyebolt provided. The Solinst Model 103 Tag Line provides a convenient,
graduated support cable that can be used for this purpose, as well as for
measuring placement depth. The inflation line of 1/8" (3 mm) low density
polyethylene (LDPE) is easily attached using the nylon compression
fittings on each packer.

Single or Straddle Packers
Solinst packers are ideal for use with Solinst Bladder Pumps or Double
Valve Pumps, which can be easily attached above the packers. The water
inlet can be below a single packer, or through perforated pipe fitted
between straddle packers. For hydraulic conductivity testing, Solinst
Leveloggers can also be suspended, either below or between packers,
from the eyebolt on the bottom of the packer.
