2-Inch Drill

Description

The 2-Inch Drill system was developed and manufactured by Glacier Data in Fairbanks, AK, for rapid, near-surface core collection on the U.S. ITASE project. The maximum depth the drill reached is 42 m. A number of performance issues were noted with the drill. The system was last used in 2003. IDP engineers assembled and inspected the drill in 2015 and prepared a status report of the equipment in inventory. The system would have required extensive repair and/or redesign to be made into a useful tool. IDP decommissioned this system, as its function has now been replaced by the 2-inch Stampfli Drill system.
