Since acquiring the Dual Rotary technology from Barber Industries in 1993, Foremost has continually updated, refined and expanded the DR line with the goal of enhancing its functionality and extending its range of applications. Today, Foremost offers several DR models, each packed with features that deliver heightened safety, productivity, and profitability across a variety of drilling activities.
The optional cyclone sample collecting system slows discharge velocity to allow accurate and continuous sampling of the formation.
All drill cuttings rise to the surface between the drill pipe and casing, and exit through the discharge swivel attached to the top of the casing. The discharge swivel directs cuttings to a safe dumping point or to an optional cyclone collection system.
The independent hydraulic top drive tilts for convenient loading of drill pipe and casing with the operator standing at ground level.
