WEEK EXPO 2016

September 2017 \\ PRODUCT TRIALS \\ TOP HAMMER DRILL BITS

 

Before jumping straight into the project we needed to ensure we could offer our client a suitable bit design that really

could tackle the ground formations faced. In actual production drillers really can’t afford unwanted down time and

increased operating costs so, through an in-depth consultation period; members of the Ibbotson Drilling team were able

to ascertain key characteristics about our client’s drilling pattern and scale of operation.

 

The drilling conditions on our client’s site are extremely challenging with broken and fragmented rock layers. Our T51

bit has been specifically designed with a large drop centre face to ensure hole alignment and prevent deviation during

the drilling process.The blast-hole pattern is a 2m x 2m area to depths ranging from 15–21m in certain places. Analysis

has been and will continue to be monitored on penetration rates and product longevity, in order to keep our client

at optimum productivity and ahead of the competition. Studies of the air flushing rates, rock chipping sizes and wear

resistance tests have allowed both us and the drilling team to gain advanced understanding of amnd impliment some

best practices.

 

During our testing phase our T51 bits achieved an average rate of penetration (ROP) of 1.30 m/min in abrasive rock;

competitive to that of the leading premium branded bits.

 

We are also pleased to have been able to offer our client a consignment stocking facility of the T51 bits on site. This

prevents any lead-time or transportation delays and will ensure our customer “Keeps On Drilling!” Having stock

and technical expertise within touching distance of a clients project is at the core of our business strategy and we

continuously implement knowledge and experience gained to improve our clients skills and further their projects.

If this just wasn’t enough we have also reduced our client’s yearly drill bit costs by 17% resulting in a financial saving of

over £19,000.
