As a specialty contractor to the environmental and geotechnical industries, Strata Drilling Group offers a diverse portfolio of cost-effective solutions to help our clients optimize the understanding of soil and groundwater contamination. CPT, MIP and LIF can offer cost savings over more traditional boring and sampling methods while offering minimal disturbance to the soils being tested.
Cone Penetration Test (CPT) offers cost savings over more traditional boring and sampling methods for the geotechnical industry. Used from a variety of direct push platforms, CPT provides continuous data of the geotechnical engineering properties of soils and delineating soil stratigraphy in situ.
The Membrane Interface Probe (MIP) is one of the highest resolution vertical profiling tools used to detect contaminations for environmental site assessments and characterizations. MIP is a multipurpose tool used for mapping Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in soil and groundwater. Using carrier gas, the VOCs are brought to the surface through tubing that is connected to a laboratory grade ECD, PID & FID for immediate analysis.
Laser Induced Fluorescence (LIF) is a Non-Aqueous Phase Liquid (NAPL) mapping tool used to delineate the depth and horizontal extent of free product and residual petroleum contamination. The fluorescence signal scales proportionately with NAPL concentration.
