The eccentric reamer drill is an overburden drilling system designed for conditions where a cased hole is required. Collapsing holes tend to make overburden drilling expensive, with lost drilling equipment and down time.
The eccentric designed bit rotates outward and drills a larger diameter hole than the casing, avoiding cave-ins, wash-outs, and other problems common in normal drilling operations in soft and gravel-type strata or loose rock. Since 90% of the world's overburden drilling is in loose strata, potential utilization is enormous. After reaching the designated depth, the reamer-bit is retracted by reversing the direction of the rotation and by applying tension on the reamer-bit, which has a taper and will retract into the casing for easy removal of the entire drill-string. This leaves the casing in place for other applications or for removal at a later date. The method is designed for use with flush joint threaded pipe or welded-type casing and provides a bit size for a wide variety of different casing wall thicknesses.
ODEX ECCENTRIC CASING SYSTEM In the projects of drilling,drillers often meet with problems due to the loose land formation.These may cause troubles such as difficulty in drilling down,collapse of holes,damage of drilling tools,etc.To solve the problems,the best way is to use (ODEX)Overburden Drilling System which can prevent holes and drilling tools from damage,and support the holes by casing tubes.

Tungsten carbide from European is also available.
Eccentric Reamer System Step-by-step 1. When drilling starts, the reamer swings out and reams the pilot-hole wide enough for the casing tube to slide down behind the drill bit assembly. 2. When the required depth is reached, rotation is reversed carefully, whereupon the reamer swings in , allowing the drill bit assembly to be pulled up through the casing. 3. Casing tubes that are to be left in the drill hole should be sealed at the bottom of the hole by means of cement grout or some other sealing agent. 4. Drilling continues to the desired depth in the bedrock using a conventional drill string.
