Shaw Core Drill

Shaw Core Drill logoChaltrek is proud to be the Canadian Distributor for the Shaw Portable Core Drill. It will allow the collection of fresh rock core samples at depths well below the weathered zone of most rock outcrops and is portable, self-contained, easy to use and fast drilling.

The Shaw Tool Company now offers three diameters of core drilling and sampling equipment: 25 mm O.D., 41 mm O.D., and 51 mm O.D.

Drilling System Comparative Advantages
    25 mm O.D.
  • less costly
  • penetrates faster
  • uses less water and fuel
  • best portability
  • easier to lift long drill strings
  • best for soil sampling
    41 mm O.D.
  • larger rock cores (37 mm)
  • less core breakage
  • best for dynamite
  • best for rock anchoring
  • best for cold demolition (expanding cement in rock or concrete)
  • least jamming
    51 mm O.D.
  • best for installation of standard monitoring wells
  • largest core for split samples
    Applications
  • mineral exploration
  • concrete and rock cold demolition
  • fence post in rock installation
  • boring for landscape utilities
  • anchor bolt and rebar installation
  • geotechnical sampling
  • blasting
  • domestic well installation
