SBSH-160/200-40D Diesel Drilling Rig Conference held
Technical and scientific conference “Drilling equipment of “Mining Machinery Holding Company – Rudgormash” for open mining” was held at JSC “Rudgormash” at the end of October. Taking part were leading specialists of 30 mining enterprises from Russia, CIS and abroad. Consumers of the produced equipment and regional subdivisions were broadly represented.
The participants got acquainted with the main production facilities, with real interest they listened to reports regarding new drilling equipment and its modernization. The latest development of “Rudgormash” is diesel drilling rig SBSH -160/200-40D with most sophisticated technical decisions applied. This drilling rig received approval from specialists of JSC “Pavlovskgranit” quarry (Pavlovsk town). Reports of representatives of spare parts supply companies (“Bosh Rexrot” mobile hydraulics, JSC Scientific Research Institute “Kompressormash” spiral compressors, “Stromag” joint mufts) caused specialists’ sharp interest.
Any new production causes both interest and mistrust of consumers. That is why during the SBSH-160/200-40D presentation a trip to JSC “Pavlovskgranit” was arranged, where participants got acquainted with the process of drilling blast holes in the quarry.
From personal talk with JSC “Pavlovskgranit” specialists, working with the drilling rig, participants of the conference learned that the drilling rig works in good order with stated productivity. The specialists also learned that apart from the electric diesel rig the diesel drilling rig is mobile which helps avoid holdups and loss of time occurring due to power network connection and reconnection.
