New Drill Rigs for Underground and Surface Exploration
The drill unit features a stiff and torsion resistant steel profile feed boom and a direct coupled feed cylinder with a feed length of 1,700 mm and maximum feed speed of 0.63 m/s. The feed boom is mounted on a frame with the tilt cylinder and mechanical supports. The mounting frame has been specifically designed for quick and easy set-up when fan drilling, with a full range of adjustment from vertical down to vertical up. The Sandvik DE150 is also available in steel for environments requiring explosion proof drill units.
Sandvik’s DE150 torque control enables optimal balancing of torque and rotation speed. The control panel is a pilot-operated hydraulic system which gives the operator central control of all drilling operations including flush pumps, wireline hoist and boom tilt. The system also controls hydraulic system pressure, feeding force, hold back pressure, water pressure and water flow.
