In Situ Soil Remediation

With the increased cost of disposing of contaminated soils Southern Ground Testing are frequently called on the carry out in situ remediation of soils. The technique involves the driving of a perforated cone with a hydraulic valve into the ground using pecussive drilling as shown above and below. A mix of the desired agent such as oxygen

Wheeled Soil Sampling

The wheeled sampling and profiling rigs are primarily used for dynamic probing, an application where a continuous density profile of the soil is obtained. However these rigs can also be used for soil sampling where the fixed cone is replaced by sampling tubes.

These rigs are very maneuverable and can access almost any location includin

Hand Held Drilling Equipment

Hand held window sampling is a technique where soil sample tubes are driven into the ground using the vibrating action of a jackhammer. The sample tubes are withdrawn using hand operated jacks to allow inspection of the soil. This type of drilling is reserved for sites with the most difficult of access, such as steep slopes and confined s

Diamond Drilling

Southern Ground Testing offer a varied service of diamond coring. Our tracked sampling rigs carry a coring attachment as standard to allow the penetration on hard standing of up to one meter in thickness. Our mobile corers run of an electric power source and are used to penetrate hard standing both vertically and horizontally.
