Wireline drill rods offer several benefits for wireline coring operations, such as:
1.Faster core retrieval: Wireline drill rods allow the drillers to retrieve the core samples using a wireline system, without having to pull out the entire drill string. This saves time and money, as well as reduces the risk of damaging the core samples or losing them in the borehole.
2.Longer rod life: Wireline drill rods are manufactured to high standards of quality and precision, using stress relieving heat treatments, precision machining, quality controls and specialty finishing processes. These ensure that the drill rods have even pin and box wear, greater resilience during wedging or deviated drilling, superior drill string life and less fluid loss2
3.More depth capacity: Wireline drill rods have different thread profiles and tubing options that provide more pullback strength, torque capacity and joint integrity than conventional drill rods. These allow the drillers to reach deeper depths with less risk of rod failure or borehole collapse.
Wireline drill rods are a vital component of wireline coring operations, which enable the drillers to extract core samples from the ground efficiently and effectively. Wireline drill rods are designed to provide optimum joint integrity, torque and pullback capacity, and longer drill string life. They also have various thread profiles and tubing options to suit different drilling conditions and applications.
