SDC375 Sonic Drilling Rig

The Sonic SDC375, like all Dando rigs, is designed to be robust and reliable and also boasts a small footprint which allows it to operate in areas of limited space as well as fit within a standard shipping container for easy transportation.

Sonic drilling boasts many advantages over conventional drilling including being faster, requiring less drilling fluid, continuous high quality coring and greatly reduced hole deviation.
