Multi-Purpose Exploration Drilling Platform DP648-RC/c

High performance multipurpose (Reverse Circulation / Diamond Core) exploration drill rig model DP648-RC/c on platform.

Multipurpose (Reverse Circulation / Diamond Core) exploration drill rigs - drilling platform DP648-RC/c

The main advantages of DP648-RCc drilling platform are its pullback capacity of 42000 lbs (19 050 kg); hydraulic power of 160 HP; rotary drives with variable/reversible hydraulic motor and automatic constant rotation power control; and a unique pipe handling system. These features give DP648-RCc rig enough power to drill in any type of mixed hard formations. The drilling angle is 0-100 degree from horizontal, which is suitable according to most drilling requirements.


If choosing both the RC and the Core drilling packages, there’s no significant time loss when switching from one drilling technique to another:

  1. Down-The-Hole to Reverse Circulation and vice versa –switches immediately, thanks to the 3 way valve;
  2. DTH/RC to Auger/Rotary and vice versa – about 10 min;
  3. DTH/RC/Auger/Rotary to Coring and vice versa – about 2 hours.

Please note that below specifications can be adapted to your needs on request, for example, the must structure designed and can be build for drill pipe of 3 m (10'), 4.5 m (15') or 6 m (20').

DP series rigs are designed with the end user in mind. You will be able to benefit from its unique features optimized for high performance, efficiency and reliability in any operational environment. The platform configuration may feature a skid, shack, platform, outlander or any other suitable platform mount. The offered drilling platform is ready to be U-bolted to any vehicle chassis, including 6, 8 or 12 wheels trucks, tractors, outlanders, or can be custom fitted to specific truck chassis, as specified by the customer.

Working temperatures: All our standard equipments are meant to operate CONSTANTLY at any temperature varying between - 45 to + 50 degrees Celsius (-49 F to 122F).
