Milton Of Drimmie Farm – Blairgowrie

In early 2017 Raeburn Drilling & Geotechnical Ltd were asked to tender for an agricultural private water supply in Balirgowrie, Scotland. With great delight we were awarded the contract and went on to drill a successful 90 meter borehole producing 4,500 litres per hour, which was divined by Doug Bates of Geodivining International.

Following the success of the drilling we installed an energy efficient 3 phase borehole pump mounted in an industrial GRP housing unit (right).

The system now feeds a tank on the hill and the farm never have to worry about water shortage again. We would like to take this oppotunity to thank out clients a Milton Of Drimmie for choosing Raeburn Drilling & Geotechnical Ltd as their trusted drilling contractor.

Domestic House & Cottage Supply, Girvan.

In early 2017 Raeburn Drilling & Geotechnical Ltd were contacted about drilling a private water supply to feed two independant houses in Girvan, South Ayrshire. Following an initial site visit to introduce our client to the waterwell drilling proccess, we then had Doug Bates of Geodivining International in to carry out a survey. After carrying out the drilling works we were able to establish a flow rate which was in excess of 6,000 litres per hour!

Following the drilling works we carried out some test pumping works to confirm the yield measured off of the drilling rig and to obtain some clean water samples – which turned out perfect in the end. We then proceeded to install the pump (left).

Here’s what our client had to say:

“I am delighted with the competence and performance of Raeburn Drilling. Our new borehole system was completed on time, within budget and with minimal disruption. Jim Raeburn never failed to respond immediately to telephone calls at any time and always has the answers. Highly recommended!”.

We are delighted with our clients feedback on our service and the system we have installed.  We would like to wish them all he best for the future and thank them for choosing Raeburn Drilling & Geotechnical Ltd as their trusted drilling contractor.

West Lethans House, Knockhill.

Raeburn Drilling recently installed a private water supply borehole to feed West Lethans House at Knockhill. Prior to approaching Raeburn Drilling our clients had much difficulty with the exisiting supply with no guarantee of quality or quantity.

unknown-1A short time after meeting at the Royal Highland Show we were able to consult Doug Bates of Geodivining International and obtain a geological report and divined location to drill.

This proved to be very successful as a flow rate of around 3,000 litres per hour was accomplished. (The average household will use around 1,500 per day)!

Coming from a returned feedback form, our clients said “the whole team on the job were excellent. It’s nice to work with a company that turns up and deliver on time”.

We thank our clients at West Lethans & wish them all the best with their new supply.

Raeburn Goes Super Sonic!

Unknown

Raeburn Drilling & Geotechnical LTD is excited to announce the purchase of a new Sonic Drilling Rig to add to its industry leading fleet of high performing drilling rigs.

The LS250 Minisonic Rig model has the capability to drill to depths of greater than 60m. It is track mounted and combined without specialised in-house Low Ground Pressure capabilities will allow us to reach any desired drilling locations.

The introduction of our sonic rig to your job will see you, the Client reap, the benefits and enable Raeburn Drilling to complete your job more efficiently and cost effectively.

The sonic rig has the ability to drill through almost any material so greatly reduces the risk of having to re-drill a hole should an obstruction be encountered. It will also complete boreholes at least 3 times quicker than conventional drilling methods.
Sonic drilling not only allows holes to be completed quicker and more efficiently but because of the greatly reduced waste generated (up to 80%) compared to Cable Tool and Rotary the high cost of waste disposal is minimal.

The unique way that the sonic rig works through vibration of the core head allows the sonic rig to drill without air or water for most soft to medium hard formations. The unique calibration of vibration, rotation and downward forces exerted on the formation by the head can be adjusted and fine-tuned by our expert operators depending on the rock lithology and hardness to optimise drilling rate, again reducing cost and increasing efficiency.

Due to the unique drill pipe loading operation on the sonic rig manual handing is greatly reduced making the whole operation safe and efficient.

Next time you think sonic, think Raeburn.
