Boart Longyear offers sonic drilling
Boart Longyear Drilling Services offers sonic drilling technology for exploration and for grout curtain installations during rehabilitation of earthen dams and spillways.
Sonic drilling involves the use of high-frequency resonant vibration to advance a core barrel into a structure. The sonic drill loosens soil and allows the core barrel to advance.
Personnel can then install an outer casing and remove the core barrel. Sonic drilling technology also eliminates fluid circulation, avoiding hydraulic fracturing. This type of drilling is especially useful at sites with vulnerable infrastructure or sensitive soil conditions, says Boart Longyear.
