Hollow-stem Auger

This method is used to give you a cased drill hole without the use of drilling fluids. This is a superb way to SPT samples for there is no caving in of the drill hole. Sample wells are also installed through the hollow stem to permit the placing of sand or pea-gravel and bentonite at strategic levels.

Continuous Flight Augering

In Geotechnical research, it is always important to acquire an accurate profile of the soil. To obtain the necessary information for such a profile, a corkscrew method of five to ten foot bites is used to display all soil including any low bearing layers such as peat or organic silts. This procedure provides a near perfect sample of the soil content. Our auger is kept in good condition and checked regularly for damage. Tough drilling causes wear and this is charged to our clients on a per unit basis when this occurs. Drilling depth should be noted when ordering a drill unit so we can reach your goal if conditions determine this. We have reached depths of 150 ft. with standard auger. Also available is a carbide bit which rapidly carves a hole seven inches in diameter through asphalt and most concrete surfaces.
