Soilmec SR-30s

 
 
 

We have three nearly new Soilmec SR-30s in our fleet. The SR-30 is much like the SR-80, only smaller. It has a modern computer system that shows and records all drilling parameters. And it is fully sound-proofed, making it ideal for working in urban areas. The SR-30 is the largest drilling rig (88,000 pounds) that can be moved in a single load, which makes mobilization more cost effective.

The SR-30's biggest asset is its ability to complete a wide variety of jobs, and the fact it is ideal for constricted job sites where a powerful drill is necessary.

This machine specializes in:

  • Large diameter piles, up to 72" and 148' deep
  • Continuous flight auger piles, up to 30" diameter
  • Installing casing via a casing spinner (using the rotary head)

The SR-30 has been specially designed for suiting the following applications:

  • Cased bore piles with casing driven directly through rotary head
  • Deep uncased bored piles stabilized by drilling fluid or dry hole
  • CFA (Continuous Flight Auger) piles by means of long auger string
  • it can be converted into DW diaphragm wall base machine to work with a guided grab (GK-5)
  • MP Micropiling kit available

The SR-30 is equipped with the DRILLING MATE SYSTEM (DMS) on a 12" touch screen for monitoring and control of the operating parameters.

The standard DMS equipment is composed of:

  • PLC controller for all electrically actuated functions
  • Fault checking and reporting
  • Monitor unit designed to display
  • Engine informations and diagnostic capability
  • Pump pressures
  • Mast verticality
  • Drilling depth
  • Rotary speed and pressure
  • Crowd pressure
  • Graphs drilling trends
