XASH 186

Air Compressor

The best method to drill an open hole in consolidated rock is to use as Down-the- Hole Hammer striking a hard tungsten tipped button bit. DTH hammers are powered by compressed air that pick and drive the heavy steel piston onto the drill bit to percussively break and pulverise the very hardest rock – the discharging air passes through the drill bit and lifts the rock debris to surface.
