Since 2009, HERO brand of core bits have been diamond drillers’ most popular choice of bit, offering the best penetration/lifespan ratio in the industry. The entire line of HERO core bit is manufactured using only the highest grade diamonds, which are coated with titanium in order to preserve their cutting abilities. What’s more, HERO line of core bits is manufactured using a unitary furnacing process that ensures the consistency required to meet Fordia’s exceptional quality standards.
With its six matrices, the HERO line allows drillers to achieve excellent drilling performance in ground with rock hardness ranging from 3.5 to 8 on Mohs scale, and is also suitable for softer, abrasive ground. Each of the core bits is available in a Vulcan configuration for deep hole drilling. For hard, abrasive ground, make sure to choose the HERO Abrasive line of core bits for the same excellent penetration/lifespan ratio.
HERO 3 matrix is specially designed to provide an excellent penetration/lifespan ratio in soft and abrasive ground such as sandstone, shale and limestone.
HERO 5 provides optimum performance in soft to medium hard ground, while also offering good performance in hard ground. Choose the HERO 5 for ground consisting of diorite, abrasive coarse-grained granite, basalt or dolomite.
HERO 7 matrix is one of the most popular in the industry. It cuts through quartz and all types of granite or equivalent hardness rocks without any problem, and is well adapted to softer and abrasive ground.
HERO 9 facilitates drilling in hard to very hard ground, such as granite or syenite. It offers great lifespan even under the most demanding drilling conditions.
HERO 11 matrix is specially designed to conquer hard to extremely hard ground, such as basalt, felsic or volcanic rock that is often found in South America or Australia.
The HERO 13 is a new matrix developed for drilling in the hardest ground, such as calcite, quartzite and taconite. This bit will stay sharp without the need for heavy bit pressure or water flow reduction. It is a freer cutting core bit and as part of the HERO line of products, it provides the same excellent penetration/lifespan ratio.
