Get all the power of full sized sonic drill rigs on a small foot print. These agile, rubber track mounted Terra Sonic TSi 150 Compact Crawler rigs are the newest and most technologically advanced sonic rigs available. Using sonic energy, sonic drill rigs achieve fast, clean, low-impact drilling in a wide variety of geotechnical, environmental, mineral drilling, and sampling applications.
These sonic drill rigs are the perfect choice for the majority of urban and off-road drilling projects because they have the largest sonic heads available, the smallest footprint, and are rubber track mounted - gentle on asphalt and powerful traction off-road. Our short mast sonic rig is ideal for working under gas station canopies and other vertically challenging conditions. It boasts the same powerful TSi 150 sonic head that is found in the taller mast sonic rigs.
How Sonic Drilling Works. Sonic energy generated by two oscillators in the drilling head creates a range of frequencies. As a result of the vibrations generated by the oscillators, the resistance of the surrounding formations is reduced, allowing rapid penetration rates. The operator has the ability to regulate the frequencies generated based on the drilling conditions encountered to maximize drilling efficiency. Sonic drilling is a fast, clean, low impact drilling method for a broad range of applications, including: environmental, geotechnical, and mineral exploration, all with multiple types of sampling capabilities. Using telescoping techniques with proper casing selection enables the elimination or minimization of cross-contamination between contaminated zones or multiple aquifers. Sandstone, limestone, siltstone, and other coarse, competent deposits can be drilled sonically using water or mud.
