Dynamic Flow

Dynamic flow for water quality profiling provides diagnostic data of the flow dynamics while the water supply well is in production.

  • Existing pump or test equivalent close to normal operations
  • In-line flow meter
  • Sample tap
  • Water discharge and disposal option
  • Access pipe if limited annular space

The dye tracer pulse technology was developed and patented by USGS and is licensed exclusively to BESST, Inc. During a dynamic profile test, fluorescent rhodamine red dye is injected into the well at a series of depths and tracked as it travels to the surface to determine the velocity of the water in the well.
