The Secoroc PARD hammer has been developed to increase rotary drilling productivity. This low impact hammer has a special short stroke lightweight piston.
A synergy combination is formed between the tuned hammer and the rotary forces which results in the Secoroc PARD system creating a higher level of energy than a DTH hammer or rotary power alone. And that means a lot more holes per shift.
• Light weight pistons – A lightweight piston with a unique alloy allows shorter strokes, which gives the PARD hammer it’s unique ability to operate at lower tool pressure, from 50–110 psi. This low pressure produces a higher frequency and lower impact force, resulting in higher rates of penetration.
• Parallel air flow – Unique parallel air flow system feeds the hammer to generate percussion and allows adequate air flow to cool the bit, while maintaining optimal pressure for bottom hole cleaning.
• Low pressure – Our patented low pressure system was designed to operate within standard rotary drilling pressures, ranging from 50–110 psi. This lower pressure permits our hammer to achieve greater penetration with existing blasthole drills. This is a significant benefit that can help reduce additional investments needed from recruiting contract support or capital investment.
