THOMPSON, CONNECTICUT USA –
Numa, the world’s leading drilling technology provider, will be exhibiting at IFCEE 2018 on March 5-10, 2018 in Orlando, Florida. Numa will be in booth 401 where DTH experts will be on hand to discuss the best methods for drilling rock.
Numa’s exhibit will feature one of the largest ranges of DTH rock drilling hammers and bits available in the industry today. With over 110 DTH products, Numa’s leading drilling technology is capable of drilling vertical, horizontal, and reverse circulation holes from 3½ to 50½ inches (89 – 1283 mm) in diameter in hard rock and unconsolidated formations. Numa will hold demonstrations using a cutaway hammer to show how DTH hammers operate down the hole.
Also exhibited will be Numa’s Super Jaws® Overburden Bits. Super Jaws is one of the best methods for simultaneously drilling and casing holes in unconsolidated ground conditions of overburden, boulders, or bedrock. With its unique wing design, Super Jaws retracts back into the guide body when drilling is complete for extraction of all tooling while leaving the casing in place. There is no reverse rotation required, nor any expensive rings, saving drillers time and money. Super Jaws is capable of drilling hole sizes 5 ½” to 42” (139 – 1067 mm) in diameter.
Super Jaws is available in two versions. One version utilizes a drive shoe welded to the front of the casing. As the bit advances, the casing is advanced at the same rate due to the drive shoulder on the guide body contacting the drive shoe welded to the casing. The Super Jaws ND version allows the use of thick wall casing or thick wall threaded casing. The guide body has no drive shoulder and the casing is advanced via a casing hammer, duplex diverter, or dual rotary.
