Indiana environmental consultants release explanation of HAPSITE technology for Vapor Intrusion Assessment

Share Article

Indiana environmental consultants Enviroforensics, released an article on the highly beneficial HAPSITE technology used by the firm to provide detailed analyses of true vapor intrusion exposure conditions. Originally developed for the U.S. Military to deliver extensive real-time air sample results in the field, HAPSITE now serves as an integral tool for identifying and measuring specific volatile organic compounds as low as within the parts per trillion (ppt) range.

With the use of this technology, administered by an in-house certified HAPSITE analyst, we are able to provide real-time data and get down to fine detail so that we can effectively identify contaminants and then mitigate them.

Indiana environmental consultants, Megan Hamilton and Jeff Carnahan, of Enviroforensics, are leading experts in vapor intrusion assessments and mitigation. Individually and as a team, Hamilton and Carnahan speak publicly on a national level to deliver cutting-edge concepts on advanced vapor intrusion technologies and practices. Most recently, the duo released an explanation of Enviroforensics’ use of HAPSITE, an extremely innovative technology originally designed for the U.S. Military to deliver laboratory-quality, real-time results for air samples in the field.

Enviroforensics leads the charge in the utilization of HAPSITE technology as a means to identify and precisely measure specific volatile organic compounds through a determination of the ions specific to a site’s contaminants of concern (COCs). The technology, used as part of an intensive vapor intrusion assessment process, can measure variables impacting issues such as TCE ground water and soil contamination or perc contamination, down to a range in parts per trillion (ppt).

The specialists write, “We use a real-time survey mode during VI assessments to find specific points in a structure where vapors may be entering the indoor air. We have found that cracks in floors and walls, floor drains, pipe chases, interior wall spaces and attics are all important features to explore.”

Hamilton and Carnahan continue, “With the use of this technology, administered by an in-house certified HAPSITE analyst, we are able to provide real-time data and get down to fine detail so that we can effectively identify contaminants and then mitigate them.”
