PowerProbe 9100-P

If you cannot find the part number in the documentation please provide detail. Specific to this item, it could include part number or application detail, (ex. 20 meters of cable, or 20 litres of volume)

The AMS PowerProbe 9100-P is a portable direct push rig, designed for use in confined spaces or buildings where a vehicle-mounted probe cannot go. This model can be driven off any standard AMS PowerProbe with an auxiliary hydraulic hook-up kit, or the optional AMS portable hydraulic power unit. The 9100-P comes standard with a 50 ft-lb hydraulic hammer which can be substituted with a 1,000 ft-lb auger drive head, if small diameter hollowstem augering is what you desire at shallow depths.

AMS PowerProbe Model 9100-P Direct Push Rig

The AMS PowerProbe™ functions as a dual-combination environmental and geotechnical drill rig. This, combined with its dual capabilities of both direct push and Hollowstem augering, assures completion of comprehensive, complex field work. The versatility of the AMS PowerProbe™ and its tooling will be a key factor in your field success.

Direct Push Drilling Technology
Direct Push Drilling Technology (direct push) allows for a wide variety of direct push tooling and instrumentation to be advanced into a subsurface lithology. This is conducted using a combination of the static weight of an AMS direct push drill rig, hydraulic down pressure, and rapid hydraulic hammering. For some direct push techniques, such as Cone Penetration Testing (CPT), rapid hydraulic hammering is not used.

Compared to conventional drilling activities, direct push technology:
• Is less labour intensive.
• Offers quicker setup time.
• Is easier to decontaminate and maintain tooling.
• Generates significantly less drill cuttings.
• Versatility provides investigators with a variety of soil investigation options.

Hollowstem Augering
Conventional hollowstem augering techniques are used to drill boreholes for environmental and geotechnical sampling activities, including lithologic description, chemical analysis, and monitoring well installation. The addition of Hollowstem augering capabilities to the AMS PowerProbe™ has greatly improved efficiency in the field.

Benefits Include:
• Ability to auger through difficult lithologies, including hardpan, resulting in less need for multiple drill rigs for complicated field situations.
• Ability to carry out direct push activities, telescopically, through the hollowstem auger, increasing the versatility of direct push tooling
