Drilling Performance and Strength Adapted from Information by Keystone Drill Services, Inc. Built to the highest standards, the Epiroc TH60 has a long history for robust and reliable per- formance. This tophead drive PTO (power take-off) drill rig has a strong, mid weight design ideal for water well, dewatering, geothermal, uranium drilling, and many more deep-hole applications. This rig offers many features, including: Strong derrick - The lattice-design derrick offers an excellent strength-to-weight ratio. Once it has been lifted into the upright posi- tion by the two hydraulic cylinders operated from the drill operator’s console, it is bolted in place at the bottom of the tower. Derrick locking pins are optional as well. Tough mainframe - Without a rigid base, a rig is prone to flex during drilling, which can lead to premature frame failure, deviation down-the-hole, and additional vibration on the drill platform. This is why the TH60 mainframe was designed to be one of the toughest drills in its class on the market today. Intelligent air regulation - The Electronic Air Regulation System (E.A.R.S.) comes standard with the TH60, allowing the operator to remain in control of both the flow and pressure. This intelligent system monitors air requirements and auto- matically adjusts the air inlet valve to match the demand. Advantages of this sys- tem include variable air flow to control the hole and develop the well, as well as variable pressure for better down-the-hole hammer control. Fuel consumption is also reduced as a result of controlled flow and pressure when maximum flow / pressure is not required. As an added benefit, the sealed actuation unit prevents freezing in cold climates. Furthermore, E.A.R.S. replaces the need for air regula- tion air lines, eliminating freeze up issues. Keystone Drill Services, Inc. is pleased to offer the TH60 as it is now an Epiroc water well drill distributor with new drill rigs, used drill rigs, parts, and service. The company’s three locations in Pennsylvania and Ohio serve the following states: Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, West Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and all counties west of I-87 in New York. 37 WorldWide Drilling Resource ® JANUARY 2021 WTR February 11 - 13, 2021 Aquarius Casino Resort - Laughlin, NV Located on the Colorado River For more information visit us online: E-mail: info@ (480) 609-3993 WHYATTEND??? • It’s a great opportunity to visit with manufacturers & suppliers, drilling contractors & pump installers, technical & consulting firms, state groundwater officials, etc. • Attend the seminars • Visit the exhibits • Earn CEU’s • Participate in the Buck Lively Scholarship Auction & Raffle No membership is required to attend – Everyone is welcome!
