The Benefits of Using Sonic Drilling for Environmental Drilling Projects (And Who to Trust for Sonic Drilling in Queensland or New South Wales)

The purpose of virtually any kind of environmental drilling project is to collect soil and groundwater samples to test for contamination. However, this process becomes more complicated because environmental drilling can have variable outcomes, effects and consequences depending on the work site.

The problem is that not all ground or site conditions are the same. Some areas have soils that are difficult to drill or sample, while the soils in other areas are more workable. Some types of sites, meanwhile, are a high risk just by virtue of their application. Landfill sites are a good example of high-risk environments. In sites with these types of challenges, sonic drilling can provide results that conventional environmental drilling processes cannot.

Numac Drilling Services Australia: Your Sonic Drilling Company in New South Wales and Queensland

At Numac Drilling Services Australia, we have the technology, equipment, experience and versatility to collect usable drill samples in virtually any site or soil conditions. Our ability to perform sonic drilling is a major component of this versatility. Our sonic rigs allow us to provide more multifaceted environmental drilling in Queensland than we can provide with more standard drilling technologies.

Let’s look at why sonic drilling technology is so effectual in expanding the scope of what the teams at Numac can do. In the simplest of terms, sonic drilling is effective because it allows us to take undisturbed soil samples in most ground contains to far greater depths than conventional push tube methods. By using sonic drilling technology, we can drill to total depth and collect continuous soil samples.

When you hire Numac for a sonic drilling project in New South Wales or Queensland, the high oscillation rate of the sonic drill creates what is called fluidisation or liquefaction of the soil. During liquefaction, the soils surrounding the drill string are vibrating at such a high speed that they essentially become a fluid or paste. This substance is easier to drill because it imposes less friction on the drill than dryer or thicker soils.
