Common types of air rotary drilling

Texan Water - Air rotary drilling - drilling a water well
Direct air flow rotary

Direct air flow rotary has compressed air injected though the center of the drill pipe. This air rotary method goes out the drill bit and brings the cuttings up the bore hole to the surface. If you are drilling a water well with this method, it is because you have medium hard types of rock like limestone. 

Direct air rotary down hole hammer

Direct air rotary down hole hammer is a similar process as direct air flow rotary, but it has a DTH (down hole hammer) attached to the bit. Additionally, we use air rotary drilling for hard rocks like granite.
