Tracer Sciences and Special Studies
SCS Tracer Environmental specializes in the application of tracer science to solve complex environmental problems. The use of non-toxic chemical tracers to collect information about pollutant transport and dispersion has been practiced for over 25 years. During this period, the staff of SCS Tracer Environmental has been directly involved in the development and application of this technology. For this reason, our company offers an advanced state-of-the-art commercialized capability in conducting environmental diagnostic testing using selected tracer chemicals, preparation, and compliance audits during the past 20 years. All of our tracer systems are non-toxic, non-hazardous, and safe to the environment. Our capabilities allow testing in all environmental media including soil gas, water and fluids, and atmosphere.
Tracers can be used to serve as a practical diagnostic tool for solving a wide array of complex environmental impact problems. The application of this science is most beneficial and cost effective when modeling is just not accurate enough and/or standard measurement techniques are inappropriate or inconclusive. In fact, tracers are commonly used in conjunction with ongoing modeling or measurement programs to enhance their outcome.
The more common applications of our tracer systems include:
- Accurate/Low Flow Measurements
- Determination of Destruction and Removal Efficiency (DRE) for Incineration Processes
- Fugitive Emissions Measurements - Spills and Liquid Leak Losses
- Indoor Air Quality Studies - Building Exchange Rates
- Isolating Pollutant Sources
- Leak Testing for Ventilation and Pipeline Systems
- Mass Transport Studies
- Odor Impact Assessments
- Validation of Transport and Dispersion Models
