Its true.... Sonic drilling is by far the best soil sampling method going. The vibration of the tool string enhances the cutting action of the tooling bit. Coring soils, gravels, rocks with minimum disturbance to the formation makes this method incredibly accurate. You will literally see the strata changes like never before.
Glacier Drilling is pleased to announce the addition of a new Geoprobe 8140LS Sonic drill rig. Being the first company to bring the 8040 to the East Coast we are now the first to bring a 8140LS.
This sonic drill is tooled using the 4"x6" method. It will retrieve 4" samples and when conditions allow can even retrieve 6" cores. We will also out fit the machine with 8" casing for larger well installs.
We believe this is an essential service to provide to our customers. This new service will give better , more accurate and a safer drilling investigation to your ultimate customer.
