Steam ice drills are used for shallow drilling to install ablation stakes, pressure transducers, and other sensors and to create large-diameter holes for sewage disposal and construction of water wells. During drilling, steam produced by boilers or steam generators flows through an insulated hose into the borehole, where it condenses and melts the ice.
