Casing Shoes

The term “Casing Shoes” represents a group of products that also include rod shoes and casing bits. These products are used when a new drill hole is being established in order to insert a casing tube through the overburden layer. The inserted casing tube subsequently serves as a clear conduit between the surface and the bedrock.

The products in this group are offered with either diamond impregnated cutting media for general applications or with tungsten-carbide cutting media for very soft or granular conditions.

The specific products in this group include:

  • CASING SHOES: Designed for use with industry standard DCDMA and metric casing tubes,
  • ROD SHOES: Designed for use where common wireline drill rods are used in place of industry standard casing tubes,
  • CASING BITS: Tools with thick-kerf crowns that are intended for use in the most difficult conditions. These products are available only as the diamond impregnated type and are supplied with any of the standard Dimatec core bit matrices. They are designed to connect to either DCDMA casing tubes or common wireline drill rods.

“325 meters with our bits very good in medium hard rock. Thank you!”

– Ontario, Canada

“The successful trial results of the bit prove this bit to be a serious alternative to our current bit of choice at our mine.”

– Australia

“I have a result from a new client in northern Ontario. Their last bits went 60 or 80 meters and with Dimatec bits 212 meter! Good production thank you.”

– North America

“We received the bits yesterday! We are quite pleased with all aspects of this order including the 4-day lead time. Thank you for the expedited service!”

“The meters drilled were above ‘the norm’ and we were well within and even under budget lets say…”

– Canada

“We had a good wear on the crown, the meters achieved are also worth commenting on being consistently all right around the 300’ mark. We’re happy and the reaming shells are also performing well.”

– North America
