What's in your well?
Introducing a simple way to find out - the NEW Cordry Core Sampler.
Collecting a continuous, sequential core sample from a long well screen in a 2-inch well is typically a difficult and potentially expensive task. Previously, long HydraSleeves and SuperSleeves that could carry out this job were heavy and unwieldly, and our recommendation was that retrieval should be accomplished with at least two people. Alternatively, discrete interval samples from long well screens could be taken by deploying multiple samples at the various intervals. To provide a simpler and less expensive option, GeoInsight has developed the Cordry Core Sampler.
The Cordry Core Sampler will collect a continuous, sequential core sample to vertically profile a water column. It is a thin sleeve that allows it to be easily deployed and retrieved with minimal strain or effort. Once retrieved, the sample in the sleeve will mirror the column of water in the well. Concentrations from different intervals are not mixed and can be isolated using special clamps applied to the outside of the sleeve.

The Cordry Core will be custom made per application, based on the well specs (2-inch diameter wells only) and customer needs.
HydraSleeves were invented in the United States and have always been made in America, using American materials and American labor.
You can rest assured the products you purchase from GeoInsight will always be of top quality.
If there is ever an issue with our poducts, please let us know. Customer service from GeoInsight is also from American people with American pride. We stand behind our products 100% and will do everything in our power to correct any defects or quality issues. Our refund and warranty policy can be found here.
Have you ever wondered if HydraSleeves can be used in geothermal environments? It's been asked of us numerous times; and yes, they have actually worked for some geothermal applications in South American of which we are aware.
We recently wanted to see exactly what the limitations are for HydraSleeves in heated environments. We know the specifications for our proprietary virgin food/medical grade LDPE material are stated to have a high end temperature range of 90 degrees Celcius with a melting point of 150 degrees C. This translates to 194 degrees Fahrenheit and melting at 302 degrees F. Basically our experiments found this to be true when heated without pressure. However, when dealing with extremely deep wells where heat can play a factor, there can also be a lot of pressure. So, does pressure along with heat change the specs of HydraSleeve use?
Let us see:
HydraSleeves can be used in geothermal applications not exceeding ~230 degrees Fahrenheit. They should even withstand a good amount of external pressure even at this temperature. If dissolved gasses (steam) are anticipated the sleeve needs to be vented at the top to allow the expanding gas to escape during recovery.
The HydraSleeve motto is “Simple by Design”. You will see it all over our packaging and in our literature.
The HydraSleeve was invented to make groundwater sampling a simple job.
The first step in the process of simplifying your groundwater sampling program is making sure you get the correct HydraSleeves and accessories for your job.
Each job or sampling location is different; each well within those locations can be different.
Reviewing the well specs and assigning HydraSleeves to those wells might seem like a daunting task to some. It might look impossible to others. For us, it’s simple. No one knows our products better.
Let us do the work for you….let us make it simple. There are several different ways we can do this for you.
Here’s an example of the information needed as seen in our well template form:
We look forward to hearing from you. It’s our job to make your job…Simple, by Design!
Our distributor in the United Kingdom (In-Situ Europe) recently posted an article about their experience demonstrating HydraSleeves for their client. The object of this demo was to determine the answer to these 3 questions:
1. Could a single HydraSleeve sample provide a comparable dissolved methane concentration?
2. Could a single HydraSleeve sample provide sufficient volume of water for laboratory analytical purposes?
3. Would water quality concentrations be similar to the ranges established in previous sampling surveys (3 had been carried out to date)?
They summed it up quite nicely:
This was a fascinating practical problem which has simplified the sampling methodology for the client whilst maintaining approved protocols. And the results look good!
