Slurry Drilling

Unstable shaft walls caused by loose soil, gravel and wet sand often collapse before they can be filled. Worse still, they can shift while being poured, compromising the strength of the foundation.

Addressing this situation requires a delicate balancing act of maintaining proper hydrostatic head pressure while filling the drilled shaft with an appropriate slurry mixture. This procedure keeps the walls
intact while the shaft is drilled and the concrete poured.

Like everything we do, successful slurry drilling requires people equal to the task. Our professional engineering staff, with the necessary expertise in physics, chemistry and geology, has tailored slurry systems
for hundreds of projects. Drilling Service Company is the area’s most-experienced slurry drilling contractor.
