Epiroc’s down-the-hole hammers and bits- boost for mining productivity

Global Mining Review,

The COP M-series from Epiroc is built to increase productivity and profitability with less impact on the environment. The 6 in., 7 in. and 8 in. hammers – COP M6, COP M7 and COP M8 – are faster, lighter, more service friendly, longer lasting and more flexible than other hammers in respective class.

Through smart engineering, with very little change of internal components, each hammer has two variants – Low Flow and High Flow – to suit different air packages on the rigs in market and also able to operate on different altitudes and climates.

“The flexibility and durability of the COP M-series is unsurpassed for DTH-hammers. It not only increases productivity but also increases operator safety and have lower impact on the environment. It really is a win-win for all,” said Sanjay Singh, Global Product Manager-DTH at Epiroc.

The patented air cycle of the COP M-series DTH hammer is unique and completely new innovation over all dominant designs in the market for last 20 years. The newer and faster air cycle makes it a shorter, lighter and faster hammer than ever before. In fact, the COP M hammers are 25 percent more compact than before.

A unique air cycle, and an all new bit design translate into great benefits. COP M-series DTH bits feature patented solid shanks, a new sealed air-flow system, special Enduro buttons and an innovative new outside flushing hole design. As a result, the COP M-series bits drill faster, last longer, and offer longer intervals between re-grinds.

Increased durability and reliability not only enables for high productivity, but also increases the operator safety as it means fewer bit changes.

A smaller, lighter and more efficient hammer has less impact on the environment as reduced fuel consumption and extended service life means lower consumption of rock tools, saving on both raw materials and transportations.
