The launch of Sandvik’s new RH 460 series delivers on reliability, productivity and efficiency – the driving force behind this new series of DTH hammers.The RH 460 design concept takes set standards to a new level, providing higher impact energy and drill performance while maximising productivity in almost all ground conditions. The range is designed to focus on reliability and endurance to ensure peak performance at all times. The new series is designed to reduce costs in drilling and have the ability to perform its required functions under stated conditions for a specified period of time. Design, test and evaluate
The new design promises to prolong hammer life and increase drilling penetration rates.Through enhanced air cycle the RH 460 will reduce fuel costs. The power level increases productivity through better lubrication capabilities, improvements in resistance against galling and developments in the piston bearing design. Put quite simply, piston and hammer life will be dramatically increased. The new RH 460 family will be launched with the release of the 4”, 5” and 6” hammers. All versions are designed to utilise bits with generic shank types.
