Geoprobe® 8150LS

Geoprobe® 8150LS

The Geoprobe® 8150LS is a powerful, safe, efficient, and accurate full size rotary sonic rig. It has many highly productive features and configurations for success in the field. Two-man drill crews can collect high quality samples and complete multiple applications in a single boring. The 8150LS is capable of working with tooling diameters of up to 12 inches and lengths of up to 10 feet. 

It delivers big sonic power to advance large diameter tools to greater depths and gives you the control necessary to complete complex holes. Continuous samples can be collected in multiple geologic formations, including consolidated materials, glacial till, and backfill rubble. 

Geoprobe® sonic owners are successful in producing more high value holes while retrieving more accurate subsurface data.

Geoprobe® GV5 Sonic Head

Geoprobe® GV5 Sonic Head

The 8150LS features the Geoprobe® designed and manufactured GV5 sonic head. The 50,000 pound dynamic force has the power to advance up to 12 inch diameter tooling. And with 4,000 foot pounds at 90 rpm, the 2-speed rotation drive has the torque needed to maintain rotation in tight formations.

The GV5 sonic head includes a centerline side shift function, which moves the head to the side so you can work inside the tool string without moving the mast or re-positioning the machine. This allows the driller to easily access the casing with the dual pivoting winch mast.

An optional coring head and auto drop hammer can be mounted onto the head carrier next to the sonic head. These items can be accessed independently at any time by side shifting over the tool string.

The switchover from sonic to high-speed coring is easy, taking less than five minutes in the field.

The optional coring head mounts onto the side of the GV5 sonic head. It moves into place by side shifting the head. The coring head is capable of 800 rpm with 540 ft-lbs of torque in forward and 720 ft-lbs of torque in reverse for breaking tool joints.

Also, the high-speed coring head incorporates a side-feed swivel, and is setup to work with our floating subs.  The floating subs have 2 inches of travel simplifying make-up with the tool string. Thread options include: AWJ, NWJ, NWL, HWL, or PWL connections.

With 13,500 ft-lbf of breakout torque, the 14 in. double wrench breakout on the 8150LS has the power needed to break joints. It is compatible with casing sizes from 2 in. to 14 in. and offers 9 in. of vertical travel. 

Swing Arm Control Panel on the 8150LS

Swing Arm Control Panel on the 8150LS

The adjustable, swing arm control panel features an intuitive layout that allows the operator to perform multiple tasks effortlessly. Speeds, feeds, and pumps can be precisely dialed in with the electronic controls. The control panel swings freely from the rig and gives the driller the flexibility to help be in the position needed to help align a rod or to be at a comfortable distance away from a spinning drill string.

An integrated systems display on the control panel provides real-time monitoring of machine parameters and a suite of built-in diagnostic tools. The control panel features an operator presence bar and emergency stop for added safety. Also included are system safeguards that protect the main engine and hydraulic components when important operational parameters are compromised.

Tooling & Accessories

Click on a section below to learn more about the tooling & accessories for the 8150LS.

Geoprobe® Weighted Wireline System

Geoprobe® Weighted Wireline System

Typical tooling that can be run with the 8150LS include:

  • Casing Sizes: 10 in., 8 in., 6 in., 4.5 in.2.25 in.
  • 4x6, 6x8, 8x10 Sonic Sampling
  • SDT60 and SDT45 Sonic Sampling
  • SDT60 and SDT45 Weighted Wire Line Sampling
  • Sonic Double Wall 4.5 in. (SDW45)
  • SP60 Groundwater Sampling
4x6 Sampling System

4x6 Sampling System

The 4x6 method is a well-established configuration that uses a 4 in. core barrel overcased with a 6 in. casing. Other sonic configurations follow in this manner with larger inner and outer casing sizes. When telescoping one casing over another, (such as 4x6) it is important to consider the spacing (annulus) between the telescoping casings. Geoprobe® sonic casing is designed so that each incremental casing is sized with bit clearances and annular space in mind.

Video: 6x8 Sampling Overview

Geoprobe Systems® 6x8 sonic sampling provides the operator a larger area to work with than the traditional 4x6 method. The operator can obtain a larger diameter sample if desired, but this casing combination is typically used to provide a larger hole, such as to set a monitoring well. When telescoping one casing over another it is important to consider your main objective to determine sampling size.

8x10 Sonic Sampling

8x10 Sonic Sampling

The 8x10 sonic sampling system from Geoprobe® is the largest amongst our conventional sonic sampling systems. The Geoprobe® sonic casing family has been uniquely designed so that each incremental casing size works efficiently with the next. In this case, you will have the size needed to remove even more material from the subsurface.

Video: Geoprobe® SDT45 Sonic Sampling

The Geoprobe Systems® Sonic Dual Tube 45 (SDT45) is a unique and versatile sampling system that advances an outer casing and an inner soil sampler simultaneously. The SDT45 sample (3.0 in. diameter) is collected in a clear PVC liner providing a high quality representative sample. The 4.5 in. outer casing remains in the ground (cased hole) while the sample is retrieved with inner 2.25 in. probe rods. The system provides optional bits based upon geologic conditions (soils and rock) for more efficient sampling and recovery. The versatile SDT45 system can be used for many applications including, environmental sampling, varying types of well installations, cased hole applications, geotechnical borings, and exploration projects of numerous types.

Geoprobe® Weighted Wireline System

Geoprobe® Weighted Wireline System

Designed to complement the Sonic Dual Tube 4.5 in. (SDT45) system for sonic applications, the SDT45 Weighted Wireline (WWL) system from Geoprobe® adds yet another innovative tool to the Geoprobe® sonic tool box. While conventional wireline systems with various latching mechanisms have proven themselves in the coring world, their adaptation to sonic applications has not been without its challenges.

Video: Sonic Double Wall 4.5 in. Overview

SDW45

SDW45

The Sonic Double Wall 45 (SDW45) System was created as a compliment to the conventional Sonic 4x6 system. It is a simple and effective tooling system designed to obtain critical confirmatory rock or bedrock samples at the end of a boring, whether Sonic 4x6 or SDT45 is used. “The beauty of this system is that it is a minimalist system. With very few additional parts, you have another tool at your disposal,” said Joel Christy, Geoprobe® Tools Engineer. There are no real limitations to this system as it can be used for environmental, geotechnical, mineral explorations, and most projects where 4x6 is used. It can also be used in place of traditional sonic dual tube system when angled drilling is required.

SP60 Sonic Groundwater Sampler

SP60 Sonic Groundwater Sampler

The SP60 Sonic Groundwater Sampler is a packer based, deployable sampling system designed for collecting groundwater samples thru Geoprobe® 6 in. Casing. The system includes an inflatable packer, 2 in. Stainless Steel screen, and an inflation manifold assembly. The assembly is commonly deployed inside 6 in. casing with standard 2 in. schedule 40 PVC. The packer is inflated via flexible tubing, inflation valve assembly, and air supply (not included). Manual air pumps or a small air tank are common sources for the compressed air needed to inflate the packer.

Geoprobe® Indexing Rack

Geoprobe® Indexing Rack

With a few basic movements and one ‘touch’ of the drill stem, sonic tooling can be loaded into the rig’s rod loader, and the machine’s functions take over. The same can be said when tripping rods out of the borehole. The machine-based rod loader lowers the tooling to a position where once again a few basic movements and one ‘touch’ of the casing puts the tool safely back into the indexing rack until it’s needed for the next interval. The rack is adapatable to run 3.5-in. to 10-in. sonic casing in 10-ft. lengths.

2.25 in. Spring Assisted Pull Cap - Pin (Left) and Box (Right)

The 2.25 in. Spring Assisted Swivel Pull Cap is designed to reduce operator fatigue when adding or removing sections of rods to the inner tool string. The internal springs of the pull cap bear the weight of the rod string. With minimal effort, the operator can adjust the rod string up or down when threading or unthreading the rods. The natural self-alignment of the rod string prevents tipping off center and binding of the threads.
