Transcript of SonicSampDrill general presentation

High-speed eccentric counter rotating rollers
High-frequency low-amplitude
Resonance occurs
Vibration amplitude less then:
10 mm
Liquefaction or fluidization of alluvial soils
Particles loose contact and react like mud fluid
What does sonic do?
Formation material must be broken
Rock layers need simultaneous rotation
Drilling of harder layers a bit with tungsten carbid is needed plus medium (water/air) to create velocity
Principles and history
1913 George Constantinesco
1930 Dr. Ion Basgan applied technique
1940-50 Oil industry
1958 Albert Bodine developed
1992 Eijkelkamp
Sonic applications
Well installation: accuracy and safety
Geothermal loop installation
Geo-construction drilling
Soil sealing
Jet grouting
Micro piling
Geotechnical testing
SmallRotoSonic (SRS)
Equipment / Capacities
Typical depth 30-50m
Sonic force 10 ton
Torque 2.0kNm
CompactRotoSonic (CRS)
MidRotoSonic (MRS)
LargeRotoSonic (LRS)
Sonic Duo
Environmental and geotechnical
Stump ForaTec - Switzerland
Morain formations with large boulders

Mineral exploration
Simoluana - Angola
Gravel, stiff- and hard clay
Anchor installation
BAM Speciale Technieken - Netherlands
Alluvial formations

Geotechnical sampling and testing
Prodrill - New Zealand
Alluvial top layer, cemented gravel, hard clay, fine/heaving sand

Single Wall Core Barrel
Dual Wall CoreBarrel
Sonic, cost effective?
Sonic sampling/casing through problematic ground
Continue with wire line coring
Multifunctional machine will provide better ROI
Rotary drilling
Core recovery: 40%
Production: 15m / day

Sonic sampling
Core recovery: 100%
Production: 10m / hour
Hardly no wear and tear

Soil sampling / coring
Seismic exploration
Dewatering drilling
Geo-construction drilling
Installation drilling
Water well drilling
Bomb detection drilling
Mixed formations
Harder materials
Superior sample recovery
Mineral sampling for Bauxite(SU)
Mineral sampling for cement (GER)
Construction debris(NL)
Front discharge
Side discharge
Sampling through boulders
Standard penetration testing
Boreholes are cleaned and cased before SPT test begins
Can use Auto Drop Hammer or more traditional style trip hammer
Can be combined with splitspoon, shelby or ackerman samplers
Also in combination with sonic CPT
(Eliminates complete CPT rig on site)
Five type of SmartWells, including:
Quality well
2'' pre-pack well
2'' Zero Defusion well
Seismic exploration drilling
Geothermal drilling (GER)
Up to 4 times faster
70% less waste
Hardly no deviation
Chemical injection
Pile length determination
Pilot hole drilling
Dam improvement(NL)
Foundation improvement(USA)
Pilot borehole drilling(DK)
Pile length determination(FR)
Drilling speed is up to 4 times faster than conventional drilling
Up to 70% less waste
Drill trough old constructions
Install in difficult to drill formations
Hardly any deviation
Cost comparison 40m holes for mineral /environmental sampling

All overburden
Up to 70% less waste
Faster than conventional drilling techniques

ORCA Down the hole CPT

With or without casing
Soil Sampling
SingleWall Core Barrel
DualWall Core Barrel
Sonic applications
20-25 anchors per day (drill time 7 minutes - 45m)
Drilling diameter 200mm with lost cone
No water use
Reduce from 8 conventional drilling rigs to 3 sonic drilling rigs
Installation benefits

AquaLock video
CoreBarrel video

25-35m / day with 3'' single and DualWall CB
90-100% recovery
Better quality samples
Day production doubled

50m / day with AquaLock 70
100% recovery
Huge increase on diamond production
Accurate mine mapping
Conventional CPT acc. ISO / ASTM standards when statically pushed.
Go through clay and gravel layers that bring refusal to conventional CPT tests with static pushing
Get indicating values from layers that have been pushed with sonic vibrations
Easily set a casing
One machine to do multiple geotechnical jobs; save on mobilization and better ROI
Sonic drill rig can also be used for CPTu cone, EC cone, seismic cone, magnetic cone and video cones
Simple plug and play system including cone, rods, cables, logging box, depth registration and software.
Safety isn't expensive, it's priceless
Multiple Emergency shut-offs on machine and remote (CE)
Insulated engine cover
Full radio controlled options
Air connections for the use of air tools (ergonimic)
Pressure relief valve
CoreBarrels with piston
Weight compensation
SPT auto drop Hammer
Floating triple clamp
Hydraulic extendable and swingable jib
DUO head on side shift
Dual rod loading
ManiPall (No hands needs handling pipes/casing)
Patent nr. N2014409
