A down-the-hole drill, usually called DTH, is basically a jackhammer screwed on the bottom of a drill string. The DTH hammer is one of the fastest ways to drill hard rock. Driving by compressed air, the DTH hammer transforms the inner energy into the kinetic energy of the piston, and the impact energy is transmitted to the bit in the form of stress wave for rock breaking. Meanwhile, the rotational torque rotates the DTH bit to cut rock into small cuttings and dust. 

We offers a wide range of DTH hammers suitable for a variety of drilling operations. The DTH hammer are usually classified into three types as below: 

Low Air Pressure DTH hammer: CIR90/CIR110/CIR150 hammer 

Middle Air Pressure DTH hammer: BR1/BR2/BR3 hammer 

High Air Pressure DTH hammer 

Size: from 3.5 inch to 12 inch

1. What is a DTH hammer?

A DTH (Down-The-Hole) hammer is a pneumatically operated drilling tool used primarily in hard rock drilling. It sits directly behind the drill bit and uses compressed air to drive a piston, which strikes the drill bit, creating an impact force.

2. What is a DTH bit?

The DTH bit is the cutting tool attached to the end of the DTH hammer. It's designed with carbide buttons to penetrate tough rock formations effectively.

3. How does a DTH hammer and bit work?

During drilling, the DTH hammer and bit are lowered into the borehole. The hammer strikes the bit directly, breaking the rock, while compressed air flushes out rock cuttings and drives the hammer.

4. What are the advantages of using a DTH hammer and bit?

They are extremely efficient in hard rock formations, offering better energy transfer and deeper penetration compared to top hammer drills. This makes them ideal for mining, quarrying, and deep well drilling.

5. Can DTH hammers and bits be used for all types of rock?

They are particularly effective in very hard rock formations. However, their efficiency might vary in softer rock or different geological conditions.

6. What sizes do DTH hammers and bits come in?

They are available in a range of sizes, catering to various borehole diameters and depths, which allows for flexibility in different drilling projects.

7. In what applications are DTH hammers and bits commonly used?

They are widely used in mining, quarrying, water well drilling, geothermal drilling, and for creating blast holes in construction and mining operations.

8. How durable are DTH hammers and bits?

Both the hammer and the bit are designed to withstand the harsh conditions of deep rock drilling, ensuring durability and reliability in tough environments.

9. Do DTH hammers require special maintenance?

Regular maintenance, including inspection, cleaning, and lubrication, is crucial to ensure the longevity and efficiency of DTH hammers and bits.

10. Can the DTH bits be replaced independently of the hammer?

Yes, DTH bits can be replaced independently as they wear out. It's important to choose the correct bit size and type for the specific hammer and drilling conditions.

11. Are there different types of DTH bits for various drilling needs?

Yes, DTH bits come in various designs with different numbers of air passages, button shapes, and face designs to match specific rock conditions and drilling requirements. 

12. How does the choice of DTH hammer and bit impact the overall drilling cost?

The efficiency and durability of DTH hammers and bits can significantly affect drilling speed and the frequency of replacements, thereby impacting the overall cost of drilling operations.
