INCREASES PRODUCTIVITY WHILE PROTECTING EQUIPMENT
UTEX Smoothdrill® and updated design, King Cobra®, shock absorbers are produced for installation in rotary blasthole drill rigs used in open-pit mining operations. The shock absorber is threaded inline between the top motor drive and the drill string below, which continues down to the tricone bit at the surface.

A proven product, that extends drilling equipment life, equates to lower dollar/foot cost over time. While most shock absorbers on the market are similarly effective in protecting the drill from axial (vertical) vibration in the Z axis, UTEX shock absorbers have demonstrated exceptional isolation in the torsional (X & Y) axes as well thanks to our engineered rubber compound. This sums to increased protection for the drill machinery.

GENERAL BENEFITS INCLUDE:
Long-life damping rubber element (pictured on the right)
Positive stops for making and breaking thread
Assists in torque control
Keeps bit in constant contact with the formation
Extended drill rig, tricone, and drive motor life
Vertical vibrations reduced by 70%
