PowerProbe 9100-SK

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)

If you are looking for the most portable and manoeuvrable track system, without sacrificing power or performance, there is not another small direct push model like the 9100-SK. The rugged rubber tracks keep the unit moving when soil conditions get soft, wet or muddy with minimal disturbance to the work site. The probe can easily be removed to allow the use of the carrier vehicle and its accessories such as the bucket, pallet forks, and backfill blade.

AMS PowerProbe Model 9100-SK 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.
