Summit Drilling has greatly increased its environmental drilling capability. With the addition of our brand new small Roto-Sonic crawler SRS, our sonic fleet is not only the largest in the East coast, it is also is the most diverse.

From our large Roto-Sonic crawler MRS-50K and compact Roto-Sonic crawler CRS, to our latest small SRS, Summit offers environmental clients an unprecedented number of sonic applications for wide range of subsurface investigation requirements. The greatest efficiency and effectiveness on any jobsite is determined by having the right tool for the job and the most experienced operators. Our sonic division is supervised by a master driller with a complete team of seasoned licensed drillers — all with years of sonic drilling experience.

Sonic Drilling for Environmental Soil Sampling and Monitoring Wells

Sonic drilling is a safe, clean and a low-impact environmental drilling technique. Roto Sonic Boreholes are drilled, cored and cased by rotating and vibrating the rod, core barrel and casing at resonant sonic frequencies. It is outstanding in its ability to provide continuous, undisturbed core samples through any geological formation – even the most-difficult-to-drill terrain with boulders for environmental soil sampling, or monitoring well installation.

This highly efficient environmental drilling method results in overall project cost savings for Summit Drilling customers due to a reduction in time personnel are required to be in the field. In addition, sonic drilling generates considerably less drill spoils than auger, mud or air rotary methods, saving additional project resources.

RotoSonic drilling delivers many benefits, including:

  • Safety
  • Speed
  • Reliability
  • Cost Effectiveness
  • 70-80% Less Waste
  • Depths to 100’
  • Diameters of up to 10” for 6” well installation
  • Superior Results
