DTH Hammer

Selecting the Right Hammer

The optimum range of hole size for blast hole drilling with DTH is 90 mm to 254 mm (3 ½”–10″). Smaller blast holes are generally drilled using tophammer, and larger holes generally use rotary machines.

In other applications, like foundation drilling, DTH hammers can be used with single bit in hole sizes up to . 750 mm (30″). With multiple hammer units CD (Cluster drills) drill holes up to 70″ or 1778 mm.

As a rule of thumb, the smallest hole diameter a DTH hammer can drill is its nominal size. A 4 inch hammer will drill a 4 inch (102 mm) hole. The limiting factor is the outside diameter of the hammer, because, as hole diameter reduces, airflow is restricted. Maximum hole size for production drilling is the nominal hammer size plus 1 inch, so for a 4 inch hammer the maximum hole size is 5 inch (127–130 mm).

Choosing the right hammer is largely determined by hole size and type of rock formation. Ideally, the size of the hammer should match the required hole dimension as closely as possible, leaving just enough space for cuttings to evacuate the hole.

DTH Bits

Selecting the Right Bit

Black Diamond has a comprehensive range of DTH drill bits to match all conceivable applications. Each bit is made from quality alloy steel, and has been precision machined to produce a perfect body, heat treated to the required hardness, given surface compression for fatigue resistance, and fitted with precision buttons manufactured in-house. These are deigned for specific applications for all rock types, hardness's and condition. Bit life and rate of penetration are the most important criteria in selecting the right bit for a particular application.

Breakout Bench

Breakout Bench

The threaded connections of the driver chuck and top sub may become very tightly tensioned during drilling. It is convenient to break the hammer threads on the rig, but if the threads cannot be loosened or tend to get stuck, a breakout bench is the solution.

This handy but powerful breakout bench can easily be placed in a workshop or container and it breaks DTH hammers between 3" adn 10". Select the right breakout bench depending on voltage and power source.
