The Vulcan configuration is an option that can be selected with most core bits and features a higher crown and higher diamond impregnation. For example, a HERO 7 with a Vulcan 20mm configuration will improve the bit life so bit replacement will be reduced.
Vulcan 16 mm
The Vulcan 16 mm is an ideal choice for deep hole drilling. Its higher diamond impregnation allows drillers to replace the core bit less often. Patented bridge design reinforces the diamond segments. The Vulcan 16 mm may be ordered in all matrices offered by Fordia.
Vulcan 20 mm
Featuring the patented bridge design, the Vulcan 20 mm is the perfect choice for deep holes when 16 mm is not enough. The Vulcan 20 mm is available for selected matrices offered by Fordia.
Vulcan 26 mm
With 26 mm of diamond impregnation, Fordia’s Vulcan 26 mm is a specialized configuration that improves productivity. The Vulcan 26mm benefits from two patented design features, the bridges reinforcing the diamond segments as well as the vertical pins that restrict circulation of drilling fluids.
This feature empowers cooling of the crown to optimize the matrix performance. The Vulcan 26 mm is available for selected matrices offered by Fordia.
