Wet and Dry Concrete Coring
When circular holes in cement is required, core drilling is the best method to use. Holes in cement are often required for plumbing, cabling, piping, optic fibre, fencing installations and more. For successful concrete coring, a diamond core drill is required. Core drills come in handheld sizes as well as larger industrial tools for bigger concrete coring projects. Some projects are suitable for wet drilling techniques, while others require the application of dry drilling methods.
- Wet concrete coring / drilling: Wet core drilling is definitely preferable, but not always suitable for every application. Wet drilling is commonly used for the drilling of reinforced concrete, foundations, concrete slabs etc. When working with hard or reinforced concrete, wet core bits are thus needed. Wet concrete causes very little disruption to the construction site, as it is noise controlled and efficient. Concrete is drilled hassle-free with the wet drilling technique, making less dust and mess to clean up. It also provides a clean and professional finish, with little to no repair work required after the drilling.
- Dry drilling / coring: Some jobs require the use of a dry drilling / coring technique, where wet drilling is not possible. Dry drilling is commonly used for masonry, where wet drilling may be hazardous or create too much of a mess (like in offices, jobs where electrical cables are present etc.). Dry drilling causes a bit more dust than wet drilling, but it is generally easy to clean in these environments.
