What Are SFA Drilling Rigs?

Sectional flight auger, or SFA piling, is a popular drilling technique used all across the globe for urban construction. SFA drilling rigs use hollow drilling shafts that can be connected with each other in a series connection, allowing the engineers to drill to any depth, even with restricted headroom, such as basements.

Drilling Depth of SFA rigs ranges from a few metres to over one hundred metres.

Drilling Speed of these rigs can reach up to a maximum of 2.7 km/h.

Power Sources for these drilling rigs are electric and hydraulic systems and diesel engines.

Transportation is generally carried out through trailers. Some rigs are mounted on crawler tracks or trucks.

Safety Features of SFA drilling rigs include emergency shut-off switches, fall protection, and safety guardrails.

Drill Bits of various types can be used, depending on the project, including PDC and tricone drill bits.

Hoisting Systems are also installed on these rigs to lift and lower drill collars, pipes, and other components.

Alpha Piling is among the top SFA rig hire contractors in London, offering cutting-edge piling rigs for various domestic and commercial applications. You can contact us to discuss your piling project with our experts.
