Gas Purge Systems Cont Developed By Dutch Engineer Late 1940s Adopted By U.S. State Of Illinois Water Group in 1954. (Re: Bubbler System Instrumentation For Water Level Measurements, By Gerald H Nelson, 1954) USGS Australia, Des Sherlock Late 1950s © Copyright
Gas Purge Systems Cont Early Instruments: Miriam Site Glass Bubble Units Bottled Dry Nitrogen or CO 2 Exactel Servo Manometers U.S.G.S Servo Manometer ( In Australia known As Stevens) © Copyright
Gas Purge Systems Cont AUSTRALIA: Qld Developed Their Gas Electric Manometer To Get A Larger Range In Late 50s Des Sherlock Developed The Sherlock Pressure Sensing Unit 1965-68 Using The Force Balance Principle. GCO, For Use With Gas Purge Or As A Fixed Open Bell System. © Copyright

Air Compressor System Cont Range Water Level0-30 Metres River LinesUp To 200 Metres Operating Temp-30 to +70 o C Humidityup to 100% © Copyright
Air Compressor System Cont 1998-2004 Proliferation New Models With Small Capacity Gas Storage Tanks New Type Instantaneous Purging Compressor Most With Inbuilt Pressure Transducers. None Dried Air After Compressing It Unreliable In High Humidity Conditions Moisture In River Line Insufficient Storage And/Or Compressor Capacity To Purge River Line Dry. © Copyright
Air Compressor System Cont At H.S. From 1984 Experimented With Pressure Transducers Technology Wasnt Until 1998 We Saw Possibility Of Making A Pressure Transducer With Similar Accuracy As The PSU I Visited Druck In U.K. In 1998 Negotiated Supply Of O.E.M Strain Gauge Modules Druck Advised Us On Processing These Elements – Remove Initial Drift – Stabilise Output © Copyright
Air Compressor System Cont H.S. Developed Signal Process – Initially 4-20 mA Output – Then Voltage – Now RS232 & SDI-12 © Copyright
Air Compressor System Cont 23/7/04 WL3100 Firmware To Accept Inputs – Latitude – Altitude – Average Water Temperature – Height Of Instrument Above Orifice And User Factor Is Calculated To Adjust Our Factory Calibration To Any Site In The World. This Is Similar To What Parascientific Do We Now Feel We Have A Pressure Transducer With Equivalent Accuracy To Our PSU However, It Will Not Have Longevity Of PSU © Copyright
