Percussion Assisted Rotary Drilling

Secoroc PARD System
– a boost for rotary drilling
Atlas Copco has been in the mining and con-
struction market for many years and is commit-
ted to innovative, productive, market leading
solutions such as QL technology for DTH
hammers. Thanks to that we now present
our latest innovation for Rotary drilling - the
Secoroc PARD System - designed to boost
rotary drilling performance.

Combining the best of DTH and Rotary

drilling technology
Targeted at mines seeking step-change technology that
yields lower operating costs, the Secoroc PARD System
opens new potential for rotary drillers. We’ve developed
lightweight, fast cycling, low impact DTH hammers
with specially adapted tricone drill bits and added it onto
standard rotary drill rigs and drill strings. The result?
A combination of percussive power and rotational force
that increases ROP up to 50%.

The most cost efficient

holes in the market
Thanks to our DTH expertise, we
can fine tune the Secoroc PARD ham-
mer with the aid of a unique parallel air-
flow system. By operating as low as
50-110 psi, drilling costs are reduced and kept down
to a minimum, by drilling more holes per shift than ever
before. That means better productivity, not to mention
lower total drilling costs!

Easy to install and operate

We’ve also thought about the operator. Installing the
Secoroc PARD System is easy and requires nothing
to be changed on the existing drilling operation. This
simple installation merely means adding an oiler and
a starter drill pipe. Once the correct starter drill pipe,
hammer and bit are in place, just tune the airflow and
you’re underway. And we’ve also found that Secoroc
PARD System makes collaring a lot smoother!

Specially designed for

Let's take a look at the technology behind the
Secoroc PARD System:
High energy output hammer
The Secoroc PARD hammer has been developed to
increase rotary drilling productivity. This low impact
hammer has a special short stroke lightweight piston.
A synergy combination is formed between this tuned
hammer and the rotary forces which results in the
Secoroc PARD system creating a higher level of energy
than a DTH hammer or rotary power alone. And that
means a lot more holes per shift.
Available in two models
The Secoroc PARD system is de-
signed for drilling medium to hard
rock blastholes from 9 7/8” to 12
¼” (25cm-31cm) in diameter.
They are available in two models:
Secoroc PARD 10 and Secoroc

penetration and long service life.
That’s why we designed Secoroc
PARD tricone bits to retain the
same service life as standard tricone
bits while increasing ROP by up to
50%. We’ve achieved this by adapt-
ing Secoroc PARD tricone drill bits
to withstand additional stresses and
strains. All this adds up to greater
productivity and lower cost per foot

Unique airflow system

The Secoroc PARD system has a
unique parallel airflow system that
directs the air down two paths. One
path goes into the hammer and
facilitates the percussion action.
The other path channels the air, via
the properly installed bit nozzles,
through the Secoroc PARD tricone
drill bits and cleans out the hole.
This facilitates efficient cuttings
removal, excellent hammer cool-
ing and optimal efficiency. And the
Secoroc PARD system operates at
the same pressure as conventional
compressors, being 50–110 psi.

depth. He also commented that using the Secoroc PARD
System was definitely faster than using a standard rotary
drill bit. He also felt that the hammer was smoother to
collar the hole since it suppressed some of the vibrations
experienced with a standard rotary bit during the first 10
ft of the hole. Compared to conventional rotary drilling,
the Secoroc PARD System is drilling 100 ft/hr or 30%

Cerro Verde Mine, South America

The Secoroc PARD 10 System was tested at Cerro Verde
Mine starting in a hard rock formation of around 200 to
250 MPa and a RQD of 75–90%.
The bit life in this area is generally 900 to 1200 meters,
with a ROP of 16 to 20 m/hr.
At this particular place in the mine, it was taking 60
minutes to drill each hole to a depth of 16.5m. With the
Secoroc PARD system, the time was reduced to less than
30 minutes.
The penetration rate had been 20 m/hr, while with
the Secoroc PARD System, 40 meters per hour was
acheived – no less than twice the ROP!.
