VIDEO! How to Mitigate Vapor Intrusion with a Vapor Extraction System

In today’s environment, there is increased attention being paid to vapor intrusion and mitigation, and rightly so. Because when volatile chemicals migrate in vapor from soil or groundwater into indoor spaces, bad things can happen.

This video addresses the problem and will give you the best solution to fix it.

Vapor Extraction System

Having identified vapor intrusion on your site, the chemicals that you may discover include volatile organic compounds, such as:

    • Trichloroethylene
    • Benzene and
    • Perchloroethylene

Semi volatile organic compounds might include:

    • Naphthalene
    • Elemental Mercury
    • Polychlorinated Biphenyls
    • Pesticides
    • Or even Radon

These compounds may be naturally occurring, result from an accidental spill or from incorrect disposal methods now deemed unacceptable.

If these vapors accumulate in dwellings, they can cause severe negative health issues, safety hazards or other undesired effects. Knowingly allowing residents and workers to work and occupy those spaces may be cause for substantial financial repercussions. 

A Vapor Extraction System Can Eliminate These Concerns

The process involves pulling a vacuum via a piping network or series of wells. The piping system or wells have a radius of influence that capture as much of the contamination zone as possible. The factors of the site will determine the optimal layout and vacuum required.

The Main Parts of a Vapor Extraction System
    • The collection matrix can be a combination of wells drilled into the ground, perforated pipe to allow the vapor to be collected, but is most commonly a combination of the two.

    • Treatment system

    • The vacuum producer is the Regenerative blower.
