Epiroc introduced the COP M-series down-the-hole hammers to the U.S. market. The company reported the range has bits designed with a unique solid shank that enhances durability and energy transfer for penetration rate.
Featuring a lighter and more compact design, the hammers are safer and easier to handle, Epiroc reported. With the simple change of an internal component, they can quickly be optimized for different air compressor pressures and volumes. That creates flexibility for mining companies running rigs with different air packages and allows the most efficient use of airflow at different altitudes, the company reported.
The hammers are available in three sizes: 6 in., 7 in. and 8 in.
