Rock Drill Bits
Atlas Copco™ Tophammer Drilling Bits
Atlas Copco tophammer bits have been specially designed for hard to very hard and abrasive rock formations. Atlas Copco bits have shown not only a considerable increase in penetration rate but also a substantially longer service life – up to 30%. Let RDS help you in choosing the right bit for your application.
Atlas Copco™ DTH (down-the-hole) Drilling Bits
A hammer is only as good as the bit it uses – and no bit is better than Secoroc DTH bits. The economics of drilling often comes down to balancing penetration against bit life. Secoroc bits improve drilling economy regardless of what hammer is used or whether optimized penetration rate or bit life is preferred. RDS can help you match the right face design and button shape to your drilling application.
Atlas Copco™ Rotary Drilling Bits
Atlas Copco Secoroc presents the latest in rotary drilling equipment – Focus rotary drill bits. This new range, suited for blast hole, water well, HDD and exploration drilling applications, is designed to withstand the ever-increasing forces and rotational speeds of today’s rotary drill rigs while offering market-leading performance. State-of-the-art engineering has resulted in new designs and insert shapes that facilitate excellent penetration rates in both soft rock and hard abrasive rock.
PDC drilling bits
PDC Dirt Digger Bits are cost effective PDC drill bits ideally suited for mining, construction, fiber optic, water well, geo thermal and shallow oil & gas drilling. PDC bit advantages over a traditional roller cone bit include longer bit life, smoother drilling operations and increased peneration rates.
Atlas Copco™ Overburden/Foundation Drilling Bits
As much as 90% of the land surface of the earth is covered with loose, unconsolidated material such as soil, clay, silt, sand, gravel and boulders, which varies in depth from a few centimeters to hundreds of meters. Drilling through this so-called overburden is often problematic, due to the tendency of the earth to cave in behind the drill bit. This makes it difficult to retrieve the drill string after the hole has been drilled. In practice, the bore hole is often lost before a casing tube can be inserted to support it. Other problems are caused by cavities or porous ground, which interfere with the circulation of the flushing medium and prevent the drill cuttings from being flushed out of the hole. In places where overburden strata are mixed, or when their drill ability is unknown, it is difficult for the driller to decide what tools to use in order to get the best overall results without risking the loss of equipment in the hole.
