Reverse circulation drilling hammers and bits

We offer a full range of reverse circulation down the hole hammers and bits, to suit all depths and ground conditions.

Due to its high-quality sample results, and speed of operation for shallower holes, reverse circulation drilling is becoming increasingly popular around the globe. In fact, it's the most widely accepted chip sampling method. This is largely due to our innovative designs, and we're continuing to develop the capabilities of this valuable sampling method. Partner with Sandvik for your reverse circulation down hole hammer drilling.
