What is Direct Push Drilling?
Direct push drilling is useful for obtaining both soil and water samples. Direct push drilling creates the main bore hole in the ground using a hammer motion rather than a traditional screw type method of drilling. Here are some of the advantages of direct push drilling.
Reduces Disturbance And Disposal
The disturbance of the ground layers can lead to an environmental disposal problem. With direct push drilling, there are not a bunch of cuttings or other debris that costs you time and money to dispose of properly. This also means your site stays pristine.
Direct push drilling is useful for those that need wells for monitoring a variety of environmental factors. This is useful for those in the natural gas industry or industrial applications where exploration is necessary, but costs need to be kept low. Brotcke also uses state of the art processes to clean and rehabilitate older wells for whatever purpose you need them for.
Easier To Deploy
A direct push drill is mounted on tracks and can be deployed at less cost because it doesn’t take as long as an auger to get set up. Our units can be used in remote and even more sensitive areas because of how little disruption they cause.
No Flushing Needed
Your site is kept much cleaner with direct push drilling. Since water is not needed to flush holes, there is less chance of creating large muddy spots.
More Efficient Drilling Encourages Opportunity
When exploration is less expensive and easier, then the industry is encouraged to explore and provide safer monitoring of sensitive areas or industrial sites. Natural gas exploration helps reduce energy costs throughout the country. The GEOPROBE 6610DTX is Brotcke’s direct push drilling probe that is available to take water, soil, and other samples from your site.
