How To Select Drilling Rig Machine

Drilling Rig Machine of Good Choice

How much do you know about Drilling Rigs? Maybe you’re like most people and just know a drilling machine as a construction piece of equipment that drills holes into the earth’s surface. If you don’t know much about drilling rigs and want to learn more about them, please read this article carefully.

Drilling machines are ubiquitous in people’s lives. It is a construction equipment that drills holes in the earth’s surface. It is the most frequently mechanical equipment and is widely used in construction sites, geological exploration, and large-scale infrastructure projects.

It is can be used for a variety of geological exploration, such as taking samples from mineral deposits and testing the physical properties of rock, soil, and groundwater. Drilling rigs can also be used for underground installations: tunnels, shafts or pipelines, and so forth.

What are the types of drilling rigs and how to distinguish them? Drilling rigs are generally divided into two categories: small(portable) drilling rigs and large drilling rigs according to their size. Drilling machines vary widely in size: they can be huge structural equipment or lighter devices that require only one person to move manually. Small (portable) drilling rigs refer to drilling machines used for mining drilling, water wells, environmental surveys, etc. The large drilling rig can drill to a depth of more than a thousand meters in the earth’s crust.

How To Choose the Proper Drilling Rigs

If you want to buy a drilling machine, you need to determine the purpose of the drilling machine and what kind of terrain it will mainly work on. You can choose from different types of rigs depending on the terrain.

1. When you choose a drilling rig, it is necessary to understand the drilling conditions, drilling depth, hole diameter, coal seam conditions, and drilling angles, and choose the type and model of the drilling rig reasonably according to these parameters.

2. In order to select the most suitable drilling machine for you, it is important to determine the main usage of your rig and its unique technology. In addition, security, reliability, and usability are also important factors to consider.
Using a reliable and easy-to-operate rig according to the YG manufacturer’s recommendations increases safety for the operator.

4. DTH Drilling Rigs

The DTH Drilling Rig’s primary drilling object is a rock formation. It is suitable for large-diameter blast hole rock drilling operations in small and medium-sized mines, road construction, water conservancy, stonework, and drilling anchor holes in slope support, tunnel support, and foundation pit support. Miniature and lightweight, suitable for places where large and medium-sized rigs cannot enact operations, convenient, and flexible. DTH Drilling Rig adopts electric energy as power, with low noise and strong power.

It uses drilling rigs that drill with a rotary cutter and hammer the bottom of the hole with a pneumatic hammer. The excavated material rises to the surface under the pressure of the compressed air used for the hammer. These drilling rigs are powerful and have high drilling rates, especially in rock.
