LITE Wireline Drill Rod

Drill-Rod-2When drill size and/or remote site mobilization becomes an issue, Di-Corp offers a lighter weight drill rod alternative in both deep hole and standard wireline thread forms (available through Jentech).

Each stage of the process, from material selection to manufacturing, packaging and handling, is controlled and supported by an experienced team of professionals — you can be confident that every rod that leaves our factory will perform to your expectations.

A variable wall thickness ensures a strong joint while decreasing the overall weight of the drill rod without compromising life. Allows for deep holes with smaller, lower powdered drills and is ideal for demanding projects requiring hole deviation. Mobilization to site is easier and less expensive (fly jobs) with light weight wireline drill rod.

Weight reduction: N = 12% | H = 22% | P = 23%

Di-Corp uses an environmentally friendly thread compound to reduce friction. This allows for the proper makeup of the joint with less torque and reduced galling.

*Depth capacity ratings are based on published industry values. Di-Corp uses comparable materials and manufacturing processes, and is confident the same results will be achieved. It is important to note that the care and handling, in addition to drilling conditions, practices, and equipment will play a significant role in the ultimate depth capacity and performance of any drill rod.

**Di-Corp is testing its rod offering at an independent facility and will publish values as they become available. Pullback is rated on a new, unused drill rod.
