PowerProbe 9100-VTR 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 compact, 34-inch wide, AMS PowerProbe™ 9100-VTR is even more versatile with a NEW propane-fueled option. The 9100-VTR-P (propane) is the ideal solution for confined situations. It provides easy access and mobility and can even access through a 36" gates. Navigation through doors, gated openings, and into buildings with low overhead clearance is easy, and propane’s clean burning properties help to maintain air quality and increases safety with a minimal flammability range. Mounted with transport hooks, this rig can be air-lifted into remote job location. Features a 175 ft-lb hammer.

Safer drilling option for drilling inside buildings and other confined spaces!

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.
