Rockmore's ROK 550T hammer
Rockmore International has launched the latest addition to its T Series DTH hammer line– the ROK 550T.
Like all T Series hammers, the ROK 550T utilises drill bits with industry-standard shank connections, without an imbedded plastic Blow Tube/Foot Valve. The new ROK 550T takes advantage of Rockmore’s patented SonicFlow technology, which optimises airflow by simplifying and streamlining the air paths to minimise back flow and turbulence, thus delivering more energy to the piston. Field testing of the SonicFlow design was determined to result in faster penetration rates and greater overall DTH hammer efficiency.
The ROK 550T is a five inch class hammer model which uses the industry standard QL5/QL50 bit shank. The hammer is suitable for blast-hole applications in the mining and construction sectors and for deep hole drilling in the water-well and geothermal sectors.
