We’ve been redefining the drilling industry for 30 years. Our success is a direct result of producing solutions that meet or exceed our clients’ needs. That’s why our mission as a drilling manufacturer remains steadfast: Geoprobe Systems® pioneers and delivers innovative, cutting-edge products for technical drillers.
Our patented interlocking split spoon sampler is a unique geotechnical innovation from Geoprobe® that is engineered to greatly benefit your field team. It is built to be 2X stronger, last longer, and saves both money and field time over a conventional spoons. Additionally, it meets ASTM Standard D1586 (see diagram).
The interlocking design provides axial alignment of the tube halves, making for a quicker assembly of the sampler. Each time it goes together it self aligns, creating a perfect fit. With the threads aligned, the cutting shoe and drive head can be threaded to the split spoon sampler. The threads are a multi-lead, which requires fewer turns during assembly and disassembly over conventional spoons. Less time is spent during assembly and disassembly, which speeds up each test interval.
In addition to time savings, the interlocking split sheath has two times the strength and durability of conventional spoons. Enhanced material properties and manufacturing result in greater longevity. Design plays an important role as well. Each interlocking point keeps the two tube halves engaged throughout the split spoon sampling process. The strength of these connections prevents the sampler from bulging in dense materials. It also keeps the tube halves tightly engaged even when over-filling of the sampler occurs.
