Candrill water powered rockdrills are simple, robust, reliable and cost-effective. They are suitable for operation as jack leg drills, for roof bolting and for rig-mounted drilling operation. The drills operate at high drilling rates and with independent rotation and hammer operation are excellent for use in fractured rock. Low mass, excellent handling and ergonomic design increase operator productivity and safety. Low noise levels (105dba) and low vibration levels greatly reduce the risk of occupational heath hazards.
Micro-hydro-powered mining is the application of water-powered mining equipment on a small scale. Typical applications include stoping, high-speed development work, mining of pillars and remnant areas, new working areas or areas,. Localized water pumps are coupled to water drills to form production units of 1 to 4 working drills. The pumps are supplied with mine service water, approximately 65% of the drill exhaust water can be re-circulated to the pumps. Water jet cleaning guns, rock loaders and other hydro-powered equipment can be powered by the same power pack.
