Boretrak® borehole deviation measurement system
Boretrak® is a cost-effective, rugged borehole deviation surveying system that's compact, lightweight and portable.
Borehole deviation happens. But without a way of measuring it, and taking the actual results of drilling activity into account, mine and quarry owners can spend more than they need to on breakage, transport, fuel and explosives, and they can risk worker safety and the safety of others working or living near blast sites. Those responsible for engineering or geotechnical projects can encounter costly delays if holes are not drilled to plan, and if action is not taken quickly.
Boretrak offers you an easy way to audit drilling activity accurately, in a wide range of applications, including quarry and cast blasting, exploration and foundation drilling, dam pinning, construction, piling and engineering works.

Why borehole deviation happens and why it matters
Borehole deviation isn't a rare occurence. Whether it's the experience of the driller, the quality of the equipment, the angle drilled or the local geology, boreholes frequently deviate from their intended path.
In the past, there was an easy way to measure deviation. Mechanical methods lacked accuracy, and produced little data, which could be mapped against the drilling plan to enable a comparison.
As a result, some mine and quarry managers - even today - will proceed to blast on the basis of the drilling plan, rather than the drilling results. And those responsible for engineering and geotechnical works would proceed on the assumption that holes were straight, encountering costly delays later in the project.
Boretrak's designed to help you complete a range of drilling-related projects more quickly and efficiently, by giving you the data you need to make decisions, quickly, on-site, and without the need to employ surveyors or other costly personnel.
