Description: Novatek water rockdrills are used for drilling of blastholes and roofbolt holes. Drilling rates are much higher than pneumatic drills and ability in fractured rock is excellent due to the independent rotation system. Energy usage is typically 80% less than pneumatic drills. • Available to suit a range of operating pressures. • Lightweight and ergonomic; able to be operated by a single person. • Use as a jackdrill (with a thrustleg) or on a drill feed. May be remote operated for feed use. • Able to use 22 mm drillsteel (up to 1.5 m length) or 25 mm drillsteels. • Able to recirculate up to 75% of exhaust water (with additional hose). • In production use since 1991.
