Why drill with air?

  • Little to no water needed
  • No refilling water when drilling tough ground (300 gallons will typically last all day, even in rock, on large drills)
  • No moving the bore around because of ground conditions. Soft clay to solid rock can be handled with one head
  • Less mess that mud system
  • If the ground or rock is tough, simply go bigger air. UNIHAMMER can handle up to 500 psi for the extreme jobs

How much air?

  • As small as a 400 cfm/200 psi to 1150 cfm/ 500 psi. Ground conditions and length determine your size needs
  • The control unit has a built-in pump that supplies from 1/2 gallon per minute to 3.5 gallons per minute of fluid to aid in cutting removal and cooling the sonde. No need to run the pump on your drill
  • A wireless remote control activates the supply valve at the control unit for your drilling air needs
  • Sonde housing handles both DCI and SubSite sondes, up to 19” and wireline compatible
