Engineering Experience Behind Drilling Equipment for Water Well Enhances Well Drill Production
When drilling equipment for water well – both well drill and water well drilling tools - are designed, built, and supported as one, the end result is a complimentary system making the driller’s job efficient and the owner's profits escalate.
"It takes both a well drill and water well drilling tools to make a hole. We can offer a better system and react to driller feedback on both sides of the system. Our engineers research the need for a specific tool or well drill feature, then through ongoing testing and development — by our team and yours — we continually make improvements," Mike Carlin, tools engineering manager, said. "When you purchase products from DRILLMAX® you aren’t just buying water well drilling tools or a well drill. You’re investing in continued innovation, enabling stronger, easier, more versatile tools and drill rigs for the future."
Our engineers leveraged their own well drill experience along with years of developing tooling systems for the environmental and geotechnical market to design water well drilling tools suited to make your well drill efficient and safe.

Higher-grade material for the mid-body strengthens drill pipes for increased durability. Engineers also added a stress-relief groove where pin end meets body of drill pipes for additional durabilty. The radius spreads the load on the drill pipes to increase fatigue life of pipe. Higher hardness tool joints also facilitate longer wear life. Several drill pipes are lighter weight than legacy versions for less weight and wear on the rig.
Utilizing 20-foot drill pipe with a standard hoist plug results in the pipe leaning and binding threads, requiring the operator to manage the winch tension. The spring assisted swivel hoist plug supports the weight of a drill rod, providing the correct winch line tension when threading tool joints, ultimately leading to a faster, easier, safer job. Vent holes in the spring assisted swivel hoist plug allow the drill string to drain fluid down hole as rods are removed versus spraying out of the tool joint when unthreading, which results in a tidier job site.

It takes the effort out of what the driller and helper have to do, making job easier and better. Anytime you buy a tool that makes life a little easier, it’s a good value. Just makes work not so much work.
