1. The concept and application of surface tophammer drill rigs

Surface hydraulic tophammer drill rigs referred to as surface tophammer drill rigs are assembled with hydraulic drifters on top drill rods for surface drilling by impact and rotation. The surface tophammer drill rigs are mainly used in hard and medium hard rock for drilling holes of common diameters of 28 to 127mm, which biggest diameter is up to 152mm. The surface tophammer drill rigs are not best choice for holes of 127 to 152mm, but DTH drill rigs are first choice instead.

The surface tophammer drill rigs could be used for production in small and medium surface mines, for auxiliary operations of slope treatment, secondary breakup and toe elimination in large surface mines, and for drilling operations in quarry, railways, highways, hydropower, non-metallic mines, construction, stone excavation, etc.

3. Overseas surface hydraulic tophammer drill rigs

The latest technical development of overseas hydraulic tophammer surface drill rigs is to introduce computer intelligent control in operations. The drill rigs can automatically adjust the impact pressure, rotation pressure and feeding pressure according to rock conditions such as hardness, cracks, cavities, etc. The so-called automatic drilling control system for rock induction is applied to avoid stuck, improve the service life and efficiency of the drilling tools, and constantly care working environment, safety, environmental protection and comfort.

The main overseas models of drill rigs include the following:

1) DP1500i heavy-duty drill rig from Sandvik,

2) DX800 and DG800 medium drill rig from Sandvik,

3) DC125R small drill rig from Sandvik,
