Real World Applications

Geoprobe® Machines and Tools Offer Field Solutions in the Environmental, Geotechnical, Mining Exploration and Geothermal Industries.

Back in 1987, Geoprobe® machines were very small and the field applications were few.  Actually, there was just one application: soil gas.  Since then, the development of new, more powerful machines and associated tooling systems has allowed the list of potential field applications to explode!  Geoprobe® customers around the world have gone to great length to tackle many specialty field challenges.  Numerous field applications have been refined by the Geoprobe® research and development team to improve field performance while other applications are customer-specific and commonly include specialty options.  Geoprobe® equipment can be found operating in the environmental, geotechnical, mining, and geothermal industries.  And as new applications are identified, the use of Geoprobe® equipment will expand to more industries and the applications list will continue to grow.
