Where can they be employed?


There are a lot of industries that require creation of holes in the sub-surface of the earth. These machines are proven to be effective in the process of collecting samples of mineral deposits, soil, rock or ground water to test its properties. They can also be used to install sub – surface utilities such as wells or tunnels.
Here are a few ways in which drilling machines are used:
Petroleum Industry:


These are not only used to discover reservoirs but also to drill holes in order to make the process of extraction of petroleum easier. In the process of on-shore drilling, once a well has been drilled, the portable drilling rig is moved onto a different location to dig another hole.


Extraction of ground water:


These portable trailer mounted drilling rigs have a drill rating ranging from 300 feet and go all the way up to 800 feet. There are more sophisticated drilling rigs that are used in the extraction of ground water that require more skill to operate. They are also difficult to handle due to the longer drill pipes that usually 6 to 9 meters in length.




Mining drills are categorized into two types depending on their purpose and level of complexity. The exploration drill is used to identify the location or mineral and determine its quality while the production drill is used as part of the production cycle during the extensive mining process. Sometimes, drilling rigs may also be used for rock blasting.
