Sonic Drilling Applications

Do you know how Sonic Drilling works? Did you know that Sonic Drilling is often used in Geotechnical Drilling, Mining and Environmental Drilling? Check out our information and Go Sonic with Eijkelkamp SonicSampDrill.

How does Sonic Drilling work

How does Sonic Drilling work

How does sonic work:

Sonic drilling is a soil penetration technique that strongly reduces friction on the drill string and drill bit due to liquefaction, inertia effects and a temporary reduction of porosity of the soil.

Environmental exploration

Environmental exploration

Why do you need sonic:

  • Highest quality samples/cores in the drilling world 
  • Fantastic production in drilling footage
  • No cuttings or waste
  • Little use of drilling fluids in most conditions
  • Small package for difficult access
  • Lower cost per data point or core sample
  • Safe due to ease of rod handling and general methods
  • Relatively quiet operation
  • Diverse use with many applications and market areas

SingleWall and DualWall CoreBarrel

SingleWall and DualWall CoreBarrel

Do you need:

  • High recovery rates and large diameter samples?
  • High speed sample production?
  • High quality samples of mixed geology?
  • Samples with low disturbance, even from coarse sand?
  • Samples taken from difficult types of rock?

With other formations than sand, loam, peat or clay, our CoreBarrel is the right choice in combination with our sonic rigs. You combine vibration with rotation to allow the tungsten carbide-buttoned coring shoes to cut through the harder formations.

AquaLock

AquaLock

Do you need:

  • Perfect samples taken directly from desired depths?
  • High speed sample production?
  • High quality samples of mixed geology?
  • Long samples with low disturbance, even from coarse sand

The patented AquaLock is a soil sampler with absolutely unique features. The AquaLock is vibrated down directly to sampling depth where it takes a long and practically undisturbed sample. The AquaLock combines the advantages of the very rapid, smooth and powerful Sonic drilling technique with the advantages of a piston type core sampler. It can be used for continuous sampling or discrete sampling.
