The Solinst 103 Tag Line Series uses a weight attached to a laser marked cable and is principally designed for use during the installation of monitoring wells. The Tag Line also provides a simple method to measure the depth to the bottom of a well.
The Tag Line is perfect for use when installing, as you can easily measure the depth to the top of a backfill sand or bentonite layer during the completion of a well. It is also ideal as a multi-purpose marked support line.
The cable is mounted on a sturdy free-standing reel with a carrying handle, weight holder and brake
The Tag Line uses durable polyethylene coated 1/16" (1.6 mm) stranded stainless steel wireline with a minimum break strength of 270 lbs (122 kg). It comes in standard lengths of 100 ft. to 1000 ft. (30 m to 300 m). Other lengths are available by request.
Markings are clearly and accurately laser etched every 1/4 foot or every 5 centimeters of the cable. The laser markings allow the cable to run smoothly over the Tape Guide.
Stainless Steel Tag
The standard stainless steel tag weight is 1.5 lbs (0.68 kg) and measures
3/4" x 1 ft. (19 mm x 30 cm). A narrow tag weight, 1/2" x 1 ft. (13 mm x 30 cm), weighing 0.65 lbs (0.30 kg), is also an option. Tag weights have tapered ends to minimize hang-ups during deployment and return to the surface and can be clipped on and off the cable or tape. This allows the use of the reel-mounted marked cable or tape for other uses.
Applications Where Tag Lines are Useful
- Accurately measure depth to backfill during well construction
- Measured safety support line for deployment of pumps, bailers, samplers and packers
