Operational Considerations for Hole Opener

Hole openers are a device used to enlarge the borehole during a well drilling operation. It can be positioned either above the drill bit or above a pilot run inside the existing borehole.

Numerous designs exist, in sizes varying from 8 inches to above 66 inches. Usages range from Vertical Drilling to Horizontal Directional Drilling(HDD) & Back Pulling Drilling

What Are TCI Hole Opener Used For?

Also known as rock reamers, hole openers are used to enlarge the existing hole by cutting into the rock. Applications of hole openers include:

  • Trenchless construction of horizontal directional pipes
  • Vertical directional water well reaming
  • Vertical directional geothermal wells
  • Mining reaming projects

How Do TCI Hole Openers Work?

  • The working principle of hole openers is that when the hole opener rotates, the TCI palm cutter also relies on pressure to rotate, so the TCI palm cutter can form a concentric network crushing trajectory when breaking the rock at the working face, during which the rock is squeezed into thin layers of fragments to fall off.

Why Choose TCI Hole Openers?

Point One

TCI hole openers are ideal for jobs where trenching is not possible, such as pipe installation.

Point Two

TCI Hole Opener can be customized to any size to meet engineering requirements.

Point Three

For vertical directional drilling, the cost of a hole opener is 2-3 times lower than a larger size tricone bit.

Point Four

Good effect of shoring and slag removal, reduce the repeated rock breaking of TCI cutter and improve the reaming speed

Point Five

TCI hole opener is mainly used for reaming hard rock sections, and its effect is better than barrel reamer.

Point Six

For vertical directional drilling, the cost of a hole opener is 2-3 times lower than a larger size tricone bit.
