Simply defined, PARD is the next viable choice to drilling faster and more efficiently. Other benefits include straighter drill holes, easier hole collaring and increased productivity. This is achieved through increased penetration rates which lower the total cost of drilling (TCD)
Atlas Copco has been in the mining and construction market for many years and is committed to innovative, productive, market leading solutions such as the QL technology for DTH hammers. Thanks to that we now present our latest innovation for rotary drilling – the Secoroc PARD system – designed to boost rotary drilling performance.
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.
Secoroc PARD tricone bits are designed to retain the same service life as standard tricone bits while increasing ROP. This has been achieved by redesigning the PARD tricone bits to withstand additional stresses and strains. All this adds up to greater productivity and lower cost per foot drilled.
