Everything You Need to Know About our Drill Rods

7 de septiembre de 2021

Posted by Rod McCoremick 
Since our integration with Epiroc, we have been working hard at integrating our product lines and updating our guides and documentation.  We started by updating our most popular guide, Mineral Exploration: Guide to Choosing the Right Core Bit, a few months ago and followed up with the Fundamental Guide to Core Bit Configurations. Now, we are happy to report the new, updated version of our free Guide to Protecting and Handling your Drill Rods is available.

There has never been a time when trying to extend the life of your equipment has been more important, and this guide is full of tips to help you do just that. It describes common problems and solutions, along with useful products that help your drill rods last longer. The new guide has a fresh look, new photos and has incorporated new Fordia Powered by Epiroc drill rods.


We invite you to download the free updated version and while you are doing so, let us tell you about our new drill rod catalogue. This is hot off the presses and full of detailed technical information you need when ordering. It includes information about our phosphate process and the drill rods with RO threads, now available. You’ll be able to refer to this catalogue for drill rod depth capacity charts, drill rod dimensions, technical specifications, and more.  Get your version here

Our goal is to make drillers’ lives easier and improve drilling performance. We hope these guides help achieve that. If you need more information or help when choosing drill rods, or for maintaining drill rods, you should reach out to our technical support team who are always available for guidance.
