Geoprobe Systems® offers both full-size and mid-size rotary sonic drilling rigs and machines with multiple configurations and powerful sonic heads allowing you to choose the size and power options that best fit your needs. All parts of the Sonic Rigs focus on safety, efficiency and accuracy in order to help make the job successful. You can sample multiple geologic formations, including consolidated materials (rock), glacial till, and backfill rubble.
50K dynamic force has the power to advance 4.5-in. to 10 in. diameter tooling
Two-speed oscillation has the torque needed to maintain rotation in tight formations
Centerline side-shift function moves the head side-to-side so you can work the inside diameter of the rod without moving the foot or without re-positioning the machine
Dual pivoting winch mast system
Geoprobe® Sonic package
The Geoprobe® Sonic Package is inclusive: rig, sonic head, tooling, training, service … everything is designed, produced, and supported by Team Geoprobe®.
GEOPROBE® SONIC SAFETY FEATURES
Rig operators benefit from two main safety features of the Sonic Rigs.
The rod-handling system increases productivity while decreasing operator fatigue. This powerful system can safely handle large diameter 1.5 m and 3 m rods and casings, minimizing heavy lifting and manual effort. Adjustable angles also permit precise head alignment.
The adjustable, easy-to-use control system features an operator presence bar and emergency stop for operator safety. Multiple emergency stops are located around the rig and on the wireless and tethered remote systems. The control panel also features an integrated systems display that provides real-time systems analysis and a suite of built-in diagnostic tools. The swing-arm controls swings freely from the rig and lets the operator be in the position needed to help align a rod or to be at a safe, comfortable distance away from a spinning drill string.
Geoprobe® Sonic Tooling
We continue to design and manufacture our own Sonic product line which offers 8 x 10, 6 x 8, and 4 x 6 sampling and our exclusive dual tube sonic sampling and weighted wireline tools. Geoprobe® also offers different collection methods, such as collection bags or liners. With our sonic liner collection system, you can view the accurate depths from which a sample is pulled. Here is information on our various sampling methods:
We invest in state-of-the-art manufacturing processes to produce the widest array of sonic bits and sampling systems available for the sonic market, from conventional telescoping soil coring to dual tubing and face flush bits for rock coring. Our sonic tooling is engineered for ease of makeup and breakout with no galling or deforming in the thread area.
Our sonic owners know with their rig purchase comes comprehensive training for rig operation and maintenance, and one-on-one, individual training for the use of tooling and the rig. We also provide the best sonic service support in the drilling industry. When our customers call with a need, we respond.
