Boart Longyear’s triple offering


Drilling products and services provider Boart Longyear has launched a new bit, rig and app.

The 10UMX bit, the latest addition to the patented Ultramatrix (UMX) family of diamond coring bits, is a high-performance bit with the freest-cutting matrix available, enabling the bit to penetrate the hardest rock formations in extreme conditions.

UMX bits are engineered to outperform existing bit technology in a wide range of drilling conditions and ground formations. UMX bits use advanced metallurgical formulas to provide increased penetration capabilities, turning easily from one ground formation to another. The optimised life of the UMX bits translates to less tripping and increased productivity.

UMX bits also utilise the company’s Stage waterway design. The geometry of these windows sustains the integrity of the bit through its entire life, allowing for a variety of crown heights, including the original 25mm, and providing maximum bit life. The Twin-Taper design improves surface flushing, forcing debris through the windows while keeping the bit face clear and reinforcing the inner diameter.

The Razorcut protrusions on the bit’s face contain diamonds that enable the bit to begin cutting right out of the box. The arrangement of these protrusions also improves the tracking and balance in the hole when drilling begins. The LS600 sonic rig delivers more accurate core sampling, less than 1% hole deviation, reduced waste, and faster penetration than conventional methods.

The technology incorporates sonic frequencies that match the resonant energy of the ground, allowing the core barrel to advance easily in unconsolidated and difficult overburden formations. During drilling, boreholes are cased continuously by first allowing the core barrel to advance into the substrate, followed by the outer casing.
This protective measure allows for the accurate measurement of continuous in-situ (undisturbed) core samples, even in varying ground conditions. The LS600 is ideal for mining applications such as tailings and heap-leach pad exploration.
Drillers can gather accurate core samples twice as fast with Sonic technology and reduce waste by up to 80%, because no fluid, air or mud is needed. The LS600 can reach a drilling depth of up to 182m.

The Sonic head of the drill produces frequencies of up to 150Hz through a robust oscillator assembly. An innovative air spring system protects the rig from the extreme vibrations and redirects the energy down the drill string to the bit face.
Boart’s new app allows users to view and send brochures, scan quick response codes, access the latest news and contact Boart Longyear. The free app is available through the iTunes App Store for download and is compatible with iPod Touches, iPhones and iPads.
