The Geotech Small Diameter Probe Scavenger™ is used to recover a wide range of floating hydrocarbons from
groundwater. It is designed to operate either alone or in conjunction with a water table depression pump in wells as small as 4″ (10cm) in diameter. It can recover a floating product layer down to a 2″ (5cm) thickness. Stainless steel and other corrosion resistant components allow efficient usage in a variety of subsurface conditions.

- Company Introduction
• For applications in 4 inch (10 cm) and larger diameter wells
• Efficient product recovery to depths of 100 feet (30 m)
• Lighter-than-water (LNAPL) product recovery
• Can be used as a stand-alone system or in conjunction with
a water table depression pump
• Reliable around-the-clock operation in automatic mode
• Sensor technology provides water-free product recovery
Recovered contaminants are automatically pumped from the
well into a recovery tank at a rate of up to 720 gallons (2,725 L)
per day. When the recovery tank becomes full, a Tankfull Probe
(optional) shuts down the pump to prevent overflow.
The Geotech Small Diameter Probe Scavenger™ is made up of a
self priming submersible pump and a sensor that discriminates
between hydrocarbons and water. The system may be used
alone or in conjunction with the water table depression pump.
Thousands of Small Diameter Probe Scavengers have been put
to work recovering product worldwide.

Formed in 1956, Geotech transitioned from a specialty machine shop to an environmental equipment manufacturer in 1978 when invited by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) to partner with them in developing products and technologies for the emerging U.S. Trace Metals Analysis Program.As a result of this partnership, the bladder pumps, peristaltic pumps, 0.45-micron sampling filters, and filter holders developed by Geotech for the program became the groundwater industry standards. Geotech rounded out already-extensive product lines by acquiring three outstanding companies: Oil Recovery Systems (ORS) in 1997, Keck Instruments, Inc. in 1999, and the Marschalk Corporation in 2005. Coupled with ongoing product research and development, Geotech today offers the most extensive line of equipment in the environmental field.In addition to its 125,000 square-foot Denver-based manufacturing plant and corporate headquarters, Geotech now operates service centers in six other states, plus a European Sales Center in Barcelona, Spain and a representative office in Beijing, China. Geotech equipment meets environmental challenges on every continent!
