AMS - Geotechnical Sampling and Testing System
Direct push can be a cost-effective, time saving, and a technically accurate means of drilling, sample collection, and testing. Split-Spoon and Shelby Tube samplers are popular options for geotechnical testing and sampling. This drilling method has been used for over 10 years and, according to the EPA in 2003, is accepted in all 50 states for RCRA, CERCLA, UST, and Brownfield site assessments and investigations. Geotechnical Sampling and/or testing for remedial investigations or construction-related projects can be conducted with direct push to depths over 100ft. For geotechnical testing from the ground surface to approximately 10ft, a variety of hand-held equipment can be used in conjunction with direct push or independently, depending on situation and scope of work. Geotechnical sampling and testing can also be used for various environmental applications.
