The Solinst Tag Line uses a weight attached to a laser marked cable or tape, 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 cable or tape 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.
The Model 103 Tag Line is also available with 3/8" (10 mm) PVDF flat tape. The tape has a break strength of greater than 220 lbs (100 kg). It has a thick dog bone design that prevents adherence to wet surfaces, and allows it to hang straight.
The tape comes with laser markings every 1/100 ft. or each millimeter. Lengths are 100 ft to 1000 ft. (30 m to 300 m). Other lengths are available by request.
The optional 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 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.
