Mincon Group PLC, a manufacturer of Hard Rock Drilling products for use in the Mining, Construction, Water Well, Geothermal and Oil & Gas Industries announces the launch of the newest addition to its Standard DTH Range of tools, The Mincon MQ Range.
Designed and tested over the past 12 months, the Mincon MQ Range of Standard DTH hammers run industry standard drill bits without the need for a foot valve. Mincon Engineers upon advice from Mincon Field Technical Specialists and End Users saw a need in the market for a range of high performance DTH hammers that could run readily available industry standard shanks, while eliminating the weakest part of any DTH bit design, the Foot Valve.
In addition to eliminating the foot valve engineers were better able to optimize energy use giving performance increases over the comparable Mincon hammer that runs a foot valve. This optimized air flow and extremely efficient exhausting also allows the MQ range to drill more efficiently when water is encountered in the bore hole.
The Mincon MQ range of DTH hammers currently consists of the following tools:
|Model||Shank Type||Minimum Bit Size||Outside Diameter|
|Mincon MQ40||TD40||4.330″ (110mm)||3.82″ (97mm)|
|Mincon MQ50||QL50||5.000″ (127mm)||4.53″ (115mm)|
|Mincon MQ55||QL50||5.375″ (136mm)||4.88″ (124mm)|
|Mincon MQ60||QL60||6.000″ (152mm)||5.5″ (140mm)|
|Mincon MQ65||QL60||6.250″ (159mm)||5.75″ (146mm)|
|Mincon MQ68||QL60||6.500″ (165mm)||5.75″ (146mm)|
