Why Blaze Foundry Core Barrels are Better

Core barrels are used for some of the toughest drilling tasks, which typically involves drilling through hard rock and steel-reinforced concrete. If your conventional augers are not getting the job done, foundry core barrels can be used in conjunction with tapered rock augers. The barrel is often equipped with a thin cutting edge to optimize the penetration rate through less contact surface area needing to be cut and taken out.

Blaze Equipment carries a wide line of core barrels that can assist you with a range of drilling applications. With that said, you’ve probably purchased or rented these from other vendors in the past. So why choose ours?

Let us explain the two main benefits you’ll get from our foundry core barrels.

foundry core barrelsBetter Designed

As with most any drilling equipment, the design determines how well the piece works. If you’re using a core barrel with a mediocre design, or a barrel with poor materials, the ensuing results will be very apparent every time you use it. You may be able to get by with lackluster parts during less-intensive drilling applications, but core barrels are typically used to bore through extremely tough surfaces. That’s why it’s imperative to use the very best.

Our core barrels utilize an optimal tooth pattern and angle to ensure easier drilling. In fact, it’s common for our customers to tell us that our core barrels chew right through the same rocky surfaces they were having trouble with previously. Design and quality always matter—don’t overlook them.

Better Value

Our foundry core barrels offer a much better value than what you’re probably used to seeing. In addition to the 1.5-inch thick cutting ring on our core barrels, each one also comes with wear bars to extend the life of the barrel. It’s common for other vendors to charge extra for these features, but not for us.

You not only save money on the added features, but you also get a core barrel with a much longer lifespan, making your money go even further—something that’s always good for the bottom line.
