Dando Drilling has been working in collaboration with Canadian company, Sonic Drill Corporation, to bring a brand new light, compact sonic drilling rig to the market. Sonic Drill Corporation, established for over 35 years, is a market leader for the sonic drilling rig industry and a leading innovator in sonic drilling technology, holding key patents for this type of drilling technique.
The new SDC375 drilling rig, now available for purchase through Dando, will feature the Sonic drill head which is well regarded for its performance and reliability.
The SDC375, like all Dando rigs, is designed to be robust and reliable and also boasts a small footprint allowing it to operate in tight spaces as well as fit inside a standard sized container for easy transportation. This is Dando’s first step into the sonic drilling market and the company stated that sonic drilling boasts many advantages over conventional drilling including being faster, requiring less drilling fluid, continuous high quality coring and greatly reduced hole deviation. In addition to the sharing of technology, Sonic Drill Corporation will also be Dando’s agent for North America.
