Why use rotary drilling

Air-rotary drilling is a quick and economical method of producing a sample. Compressed air is forced down the drill pipe and, as it returns to the surface, it carries with it rock chips made by the rotating bit. This method is used in soft rock materials to about 25m deep, or to drill through the top layer of decomposed rock and soil to get a fresh rock sample from the bedrock below.


The Hydraulic Rotary Drilling Rig is mounted on a crawler unit (SR Range) or a truck (STM Range). Self-mounting, easily transportable equipment which reduces cost of mounting and dismounting. Capable of directly driving casing with rotary and piston/winch or in combination with casing oscillator. .
