What is Auger Drilling and When is it Used?

Auger drilling is a drilling method that uses a rotary drill with a helical screw blade (auger) to drill holes into the ground. This drilling technique creates a pilot hole and forms the path for a larger drill bit, allowing drillers to extract soil samples. It’s an effective method for environments with loose soil conditions to more cohesive subsurface conditions.

There are various types of augers involved in the drilling process: hollow stem augers, solid flight augers, and continuous flight augers. Hollow stem augers are used for softer terrains. Continuous flight augers are a type of hollow stem used to create deep foundation holes. A solid flight auger is used for harder rock and soil layers.

Auger drilling is an effective soil sampling system for geotechnical analysis. It allows drillers to collect samples that are undisturbed and representative of the subsurface environment. Key applications for auger drilling include:

  • Construction projects
  • Agriculture
  • Geotechnical projects
  • Environmental assessment
  • Utility installation
