Equipment for Soil Research

Jan 01 2000

Hand drilling equipment is extremely suitable for soil research. Because almost every type of soil requires special demands on the model of the auger to be used, various models have been developed through the years. Years of experience and many contacts with soil experts at home and abroad have led to the optimal design of the various types. Deeper holes can be bored, using extension pieces with bayonet or conical threaded connections. A drilling depth of approximately 8-10 metres is
achievable using hand augers.
To reduce the physical loads associated with soil drilling and the attendant risk of physical complaints, Eijkelkamp has developed an ergonomic soil auger system. This ergonomic soil auger system differs in a number of positive ways from the traditional soil auger. The ergonomic hand auger kit for heterogeneous soils is used, in an ergonomically responsible way, to drill holes and take samples in a very wide range of soil types, for general soil research and for sampling for, among other things, environmental research. Holes can be made to a depth of five metres, dependent on the depth of the water table, the soil profile and the nature of the material to be drilled. An auger type is available for every specific situation and for every soil type above or below the groundwater table. When drilling, the auger heads can be changed without a problem.
Augers can be used for: profile description, chemical soil research, archaeological soil research, environmental soil research, monitoring well installation, making bore holes, soil classification, and seismic soil research.
