One of our most appreciated tools is not a core bit or a head assembly. It’s something every driller uses, fits in a pocket and is absolutely free. What is it? It’s our technical handbook and the good news is that we’ve just updated it to include even more valuable information.
The new Fordia Powered by Epiroc Technical Handbook is now available. We have merged the information from two sources: the Fordia technical handbook and the Epiroc version and we now have more complete and detailed information all in one booklet. We’ve included information about a wide range of products from both Epiroc and Fordia, including diamond tools, exploration tooling, and drill rigs. Of course, we discuss safety on the drill stie as well.
Everything a diamond driller could ever need to know is in this booklet: sizes of core diameters, drill rod diameters, weights, lengths, and other dimensions. Not sure about the water flow to the bit? Check the technical handbook and find out about the ideal amount of water along with all the other drilling parameters. Is the wear pattern on your bit causing you concern? Check out the illustrations in the booklet and find out what you may be doing wrong.
Well-organized drillers have lists of what they should bring to a drill site and the technical handbook should be on your list. It’s jam-packed with everything you may need to know while drilling on a site. Ask your Fordia representative for the latest copy or you can get one here.
