LF™160 Drill Rig and FL262 FREEDOM™ Loader combine to make an ideal solution for sophisticated surface drilling
The LF™160 Drill Rig, which incorporates proven technology from Boart Longyear's most popular surface coring drill rigs, combined with the FL262 FREEDOM™ Loader, creates an ideal solution for surface drilling exploration projects requiring the highest safety standards, without compromising on productivity.
Roller Latch™ Head Assemblies provide added strength and safety for consistent, extended performance
The Quick Descent™ Roller Latch™ head assembly and the Roller Latch Quick Pump-In underground head assembly provide reduced wear and increased positioning strength. Roller Latch technology eliminates the low strength, play and jamming associated with traditional swing-out latch mechanisms.
Top Hammer EL Threaded Rods, designed for excellent wear resistance
The EL (extended life) thread offers superior performance by enhancing energy transmission and distributing stress more evenly throughout the entire drill string. The innovative EL thread design offers longer rod life, easier uncoupling, excellent wear resistance, faster penetration, and straighter hole drilling.
Coring Rods and Casing expand drilling capacity while lowering costs
With market-leading strength and the innovative lightweight V-Wall™ body option, Boart Longyear's drill rods help expand capacity while lowering costs in all ground conditions and drilling applications. RQ™ rods feature a combination of proprietary heat treatment processes and innovative engineering to provide the ultimate in performance and longevity.
RC Rods, Subs and Components maximize drilling economy and minimize downtime
For reverse circulation (RC) drilling, Boart Longyear offers a full range of drill rod threads that are compatible with other systems and designed to be easily replaced in the field, minimizing costly downtime. Boart Longyear RC subs feature precision-cut threads that ensure long life and compatibility. Components include swivels, auto blow-down units, deflector boxes and knock-on systems.
Parts and Service Solutions that minimize down-time
Critical to the success of any drilling operation, Boart Longyear provides genuine spare parts, repair, and rebuild services for major components to extend the life and improve the efficiency and reliability of existing equipment.
Boart Longyear's new Nitro-Clamp utilizes the patented technology used with our Nitro Chuck™ and is available for up to PWT casing capacity. The Nitro-Clamp uses spring-closing jaws versus the wedge foot clamp and offers higher weight-holding capacity, full torque to break joints and eliminates the use of hand tools. The revolutionary Nitro-Clamp removes the risk of losing rods down the hole by holding full torque and rod string weight.
