To fully equip our Fecon drill rigs, Fecon has available drill rods, drill bits, air hammers, air hammer bits, and more.
To fully equip our Fecon drill rigs, Fecon has available drill rods, drill bits, air hammers, air hammer bits, and more. The drilling hardware commonly used in both seismic exploration and geothermal ground loop drilling applications includes 10’ straight rods, 10’ hollow stem augers, 3 wing step bits, 18” subs (in both straight and auger), and Mincon 3” down hole hammers. All Fecon supplied hardware is specified for both air rotary drilling operations and mixed mud solution injection for stabilization of the drill hole. Other drilling applications could require different specifications for drill hardware.
|Drill Rods||10’ hollow stem with Cantera threads|
|Drill Bits||3 wing step bits|
|Air Hammers||Mincon 3” DTH|
When it comes to drilling shallow depth shot holes for seismic exploration, productivity is measured by holes drilled per day. Often these holes are 20-30 feet in depth, spread out across varying conditions that could be flat, hilly, soft or hard ground, farm fields, or land covered in brush or trees, or rocks. Fecon manufactures the EX300S which is configured to have what the crew needs where it is needed with as few steps as possible to maximize drill time.
Fecon manufactures a drill rig and support trailer that is uniquely suited for residential and small commercial geothermal ground loop drilling applications. For operators offering geothermal heating and cooling installations as a way to provide a renewable energy source, having an efficient means of drilling and installing quality ground loops in the right spot with minimal disturbance is essential. It all comes down to cost-effective quality installations of geothermal energy systems.
