Keltech's Portable Auger Drill Rig

 This trailer-mounted auger drill which is operated by experienced and qualified Keltech personnel can be used to advance boreholes to depths up to 30 feet below ground surface using 3.5-inch diameter solid stem augers and depths to 20 feet below ground surface using 4 inch diameter hollow stem augers. We have had great success with this rig in most drilling conditions with the exception of coarse-grained soils containing cobbles and boulders tends to be challenging with refusal in some cases. The rig has capabilities to drill through asphalt surfaces, so pre-coring of the hole is not needed unless a larger diameter hole is required for monitoring well or soil vapour probe installations. However, if required, the drill team can utilize a 8-inch diameter core drill to pre-drill the holes through asphalt or concrete. 


Set up between holes takes minimal effort and time. 


In addition, Keltech also provides professional field support services. Each borehole can be logged and sampled for both geotechnical and environmental by experienced Keltech environmental field staff.

AUTO Guard

The rig is equipped with an approved AUTO guard. Set up between holes takes minimal effort and time. While drilling, each borehole can be logged and sampled by experienced Keltech environmental field staff. 

Portable

The rig can be used with a truck or  ATV for sites with limited access. 

Monitoring Well Installations

Utilizing 3.5 inch diameter solid stem augers allows for less soil disposal volumes and lowers consumable costs.  Both 1 inch and 2 inch monitoring wells can be installed using the solid stem augers and 1 inch wells using the hollow stem augers.

Geotechnical and Environmental Investigations

Keltech's drill rig can be used for both geotechnical and environmental site investigations.
