Sandvik releases enhanced version of its powerful compact underground coring drill Sandvik DE151

Lower ore grades and smaller discoveries call for equipment to reach deeper and more complicated ore bodies. Sandvik responds to this need by releasing Sandvik DE151, one of the most powerful and compact underground exploration core drills on the market today. 

Mr. George Tophinke, Sandvik Mining’s Global Exploration Equipment Manager, is extremely pleased with the results obtained through the trials. Rigorous field testing took place at a customer site in an underground mine and lasted over thousands of meters. Its close relationships with customers have enabled Sandvik to develop and take the DE150 model to the next step in productivity and design. The focus was on enhancing the machine’s rod holder, rotation unit and feed frame in order to achieve even greater operability and productivity compared to the previous DE150.

Sandvik DE151 shares many of the field proven components already used in the DE100 series of core drills. Mr. Tophinke comments that: “The components used in this series of drills have been shown to deliver exceptional performance across a wide range of demanding exploration applications. The use of shared components allows us to have a very high availability of spare parts and consumables in stock, enabling us to rapidly respond to our customers’ needs out in the field”. 

The rig’s modular design and a feed and pull force of 15 tonnes (33 000 lbf) makes it a truly powerful exploration drill rig, with a unique combination of size and capability, suited for both underground and surface applications.

Key specifications

• Pull and feed force of 15 tonnes (33 000 lbf)
• Maximum torque of 2000 Nm (1475 lbf ft)
• H-head rotation unit with hollow spindle ID 103 mm (4 in)
• 1700 mm (5 ft 7 in) feed stroke
• 2000 m (6560 ft) wireline hoist capacity
• Pilot-operated hydraulic system with central control of all drilling functions from the control panel
• Powered by a 110 kW (150 hp) electric motor or a 168 kW (228 hp) diesel engine
