Drill Equipments are basically machines used for creating shafts or holes in the ground and these rigs are huge machines used for drilling water wells, natural gas extraction wells or oil wells. They sample physical groundwater properties, sub surface mineral deposits, test rock and are also used for installing sib-surface fabrications like wells, underground utilities, tunnels or instrumentation. They can also be mobile equipments placed on marine based structures like oil platforms, trucks, permanent land based structures, trailers or tracks.
These heavy and massive equipments are best known for penetrating surface of earth’s crust. There are lots of different kinds of drill equipments launched by several manufacturers such as portable and small drills used in environmental investigations, mineral exploration drilling and water wells. There are some huge drills that have the capability of drilling thousands of meters of earth’s crust.
Drill Equipments are used in various projects like oil and natural gas for identifying geologic reservoirs and also creating homes that allow extraction of natural gas and oil from reservoirs. In early oil exploration, the drilling rigs were semi permanent in nature, while the derricks were manufactured on the site and left in place. In those times, there were lots of drilling equipments available for extensive prices and were custom built. Some of the most common were light duty drill equipment that was similar to mobile crane used for drilling water wells. The large equipments were used for drilling holes in quarries. There was some compact drilling equipment as well used for drilling or boring piles.
There are lots of different designs and types of Drill Equipments with several drilling rigs that have the ability of combining or switching different drilling technologies when required. Some of the most famous equipments are Centrifuge, solids control, chain tongs, Degasser, Desander, drawworks, drill bit, drill pipe, elevators, mud motor, mud pump, mud tanks, rotary table and shale shaker.
