Why Is Sonic Drill More Advantageous Than Traditional Methods of Drilling?

We may not have intimate knowledge about the sonic drill, but we know for a fact that this method of drilling is not new either. It has been around for quite some time already and that up to this day it has remained to its adoption stage. 

When we describe technology as being stuck in its adoption phase, what do we exactly mean by that? This signifies that drilling contractors will have an extra mile to educate their clients about it. They may be coming from various fields of interest like environmental, mining, geotechnical or water well industries. Regardless of the sector from which their clients are originating from, it is crucial that they somehow understand how advantageous is the use of a sonic drill method to their project at hand.  

Minimizes Your Drilling Waste by Up to 80%

The best description I can come with regards to sonic drills is that they’re an innovative drilling technology known for their use of the casing advancement system. This process takes away from drilling the production of the slough. With that, you can have improved sample integrity even if you are drilling through the toughest of stone materials such as dolomite, limestone, and a host of other unconsolidated objects.  

Sonic Drilling Gives the Right Information You Are Looking For

Do you require nothing but an unprecedented core sample as well as the highest level of accuracy by whatever type of formation you need to drill through? Sonic drill method does that for your project. It comes with less than 1% deviation, and I know you can almost ignore it. With this, geologists, drillers and environmental scientists can ascertain exactly where exactly they have obtained their core sample.  

Sonic drill method delivers faster results as opposed to traditional overburden drilling techniques. 

This method of drilling employs ultra-high frequency resonance to help in the elimination of friction that usually occurs between the core barrel or tooling and the encountered subsurface. With this, you can count to have maximum core recovery and efficient penetration in many different kinds of subsurface conditions.

While there is an ongoing drilling activity, the resonant energy generated by the drill is transferred to the bit face and this will occur at different sonic frequencies. The sustained rotation of the drill will help in the even distribution of the impact and energy at the bit face.  

It allows you to access hard to reach drill sites and fragile terrains. 

If your drilling project is located in a remote area, the use of track-mounted rigs will give you the kind of mobility you are looking for. Sonic method of drilling comes with a goat-like versatility so you can have a level of accessibility that is beyond what a super duty truck is capable of handling. The compact drill pads they come with will minimize, if not completely eradicate, the need to take out trees and grade the land so that it can become a suitable drill site you can work on.
