Loop Installation Services
Serving the residential and commercial vertical loop installation needs of geothermal heat pump installers, contractors, homeowners and consulting engineers across Ontario, GeoSmart Drilling Services is well equipped to meet your vertical drilling needs regardless of the ground conditions.
Our compact new XL10 drill rig is the most advanced geothermal drill rig available today, custom designed to address even the most challenging geothermal applications. The versatility of this unique drilling rig makes it one of the most efficient and cost effective methods for geothermal loop installations.
Boasting superior power and multi -purpose drilling capability, the drill rig’s high efficiency hydraulics boost rig performance and deliver more power to the rotary head, while the rig’s compact size enables greater access to confined spaces. This unique drill rig provides GeoSmart Drilling Services the ability to employ a variety of drilling techniques with one rig – auger, air rotary, mud rotary, and down the hole (DTH) hammer drilling methods. Boreholes are drilled simultaneously with casing as required or without , vertically and at angles to ensure your loops are installed right the first time.
Our XL10 drill rig in combination with the drill crews experience is an effective solution for penetrating tough geology such unconsolidated formations (sand, gravel, cobbles, and boulders) that would otherwise be impenetrable using other drilling contractors.
Our tracked drill allows GeoSmart Drilling Services to offer competitive drilling services in traditional drilling applications as well as the ability to access limited sites.
From mobilization to completion, GeoSmart Drilling Services can perform:
- Vertical drilling & loop installation
- Header “Tie In” services
- Loop purging & antifreeze installation
- Test boreholes and produce feasibility reports
- In Situ Thermal Conductivity testing
- Borehole field & loop design
