Down-The-Hole ( DTH ) Bits Summary 

Down-the-hole (DTH) bits are used with Down-the-hole hammers for drilling holes through a wide range of rock types. In conjunction with DTH hammers, drill hammer bits are designed with a splined drive for rotating the bit in the ground. Drill bits are available in different sizes and different styles so they can drill a wide range of hole sizes.

Our variety of Down the Hole drill bits are manufactured using the following high quality materials to provide you with a fine balance between penetration capability and bit life.   

(1) Skirt body alloy steel use imported TIMKEN, USA 

(2) Cemented carbide grade T6 from Element Six Group working for Boart Longyear. 

We offer a comprehensive range of standard and made to order drill bits on an extensive selection of shanks with a wide variety of head designs to suit every project.

Bit Face Shape Selection:

1. Drop Center Bit

For high penetration rates in soft to medium hard and fissure rock formations Low to medium air pressures. Maximum hole deviation control.

2. Concave Face

The all around application bit face specifically for medium hard and homogeneous rock formations. Good hole deviation control and good flushing capacity.

3. Convex Face

A classic design for soft to medium hard rock formation which is not so abrasive. This design have very excellent penetration rate but poor in hole deviation if rocks are hard.

For high penetration rates in soft to medium-hard with low to medium air pressures. It is the most resistance to steel wash, and  may reduce the load and wear on the gauge buttons, but poor hole deviation control.

4. Flat Face Bit

This is an universal design, especially for hard and abrasive rock formation. So typically, flat face with hemispherical buttons design is the most popular choice.

This kind of face shape is suitable for hard to very hard and abrasive rock formations in application with high air pressure. Good penetration rates an resistance to steel wash.

5. DGR face

A special design for hard or very hard rock conditions, double gauge row buttons provide very excellent ware-resistance and very longer life time. It is usually used for some bigger diameter DTH bits.

Carbide Button Shape Selection:

1. Semi-Ballistic Button

2. Ballistic Button

3. Spherical Button

4. Two-step Button

Besides, we are manufacturing the DTH bits with various shanks so they can be compatible with different DTH hammers
