Geoprobe® is a brand name of hydraulically powered percussion direct push sampling designed specifically for use in the environmental industry.
Soil probing techniques can be thought of as a subcategory of what are commonly referred to as “Direct Push” techniques. Direct push refers to tools, sensors, and sampling equipment that are inserted into the ground without drilling a hole to make a path for the rod.
A Geoprobe® relies on the static weight of the vehicle combined with percussion as the energy for the advancement of the tool string. This allows for the collection of soil samples, water samples, and small wells.
