This year the engineering and mining industry is still during the downturn, many drilling equipment underemployment, in addition, the Chinese Spring Festival is approaching, a lot of crawler rock drill is also close to downtime, storage in downtime of drilling rig is easy to overlook the problem of everyone, in fact, storage for crawler drilling equipment and drill tools is very important when you start to use it .
How to make the drill rod storage?
Short term storage.Following the below step.
OK,this is a good question,it’s also a secret of benefit.Some boss ask me,why other company annual benefit is higher than ours,we work in the same mining site,use the same pneumatic crawler drilling rig？The reason is obviously now,you can save a lot if you store and maintenance for drill rods and DTH hammer with correct way.
Many drillers records the drill tools consume,eg,how long the DTH hammer can work.Now the global mining market is still slowly,the price of drilling hole per meter is going down continuously.So I suggest that all the boss pay more attention for storage and maintenance of drill tools.You can have a try to see if the life of drill rod and DTH hammer is longer than before if you follow our suggestion step.Definitely will save A LOT of your money.
I remember a Australian driller told me,the drill machine is more reliable than human.You treat it well,then it treat you better.Look,our crawler rock drill is just like 1 year old,but we use it for 3 years now.
