Direct Push Drilling Technology allows for a wide variety of direct push tooling and instrumentation to be advanced into a subsurface lithology using the static weight of the rig, hydraulic down pressure, and rapid hydraulic hammering.
Direct Push Tooling is used to perform soil, soil gas, and groundwater sampling. It is also used for soil remediation, and geotechnical sampling and testing. Many AMS PowerProbe direct push drill rigs also have hollowstem augering capabilities.
Compared to conventional drilling, direct push drilling is less labor intensive, offers quicker setup time, and generates less drill cuttings. Direct push tooling is also easier to decontaminate and maintain.
