Borehole drilling equipment is used to develop water wells and to search for oil. Drilling is typically done in remote areas so rigs need to supply a reliable source of power. You'll need optional equipment like drill bits, drill pipes, mud pumps, high pressure injectors and mixers depending on what you're drilling for and how deep you need to go. Of course the geology needs to also be considered.

Consallen Group

The Consallen Group designs and manufactures borehole drilling equipment. They specialise in multipurpose borehole drilling rigs for use in water prospecting, soil sampling or searching for oil. Consallen also manufactures well pumps and water storage and treatment equipment for use once a water well is established. Trailer-tripod cable percussion rigs are used in remote areas for groundwater survey and water well drilling.

Drill2Water offers a full range of borehole drilling equipment for water wells. They'll ship complete machinery to your site in a 20-foot container and it'll be ready to use when it arrives. They have many types of drill bits including step bits, claw bits, chevron bits and tricone bits. You'll switch out drill bits depending on the type of soil or geologic formation you're drilling into. They also sell drill pipes and drill mud. Drill pipes are added into borehole as the borehole deepens and the mud acts as a lubricant so that drill bits don't get damaged when they heat up as they drill into hard rock.
