Greasing drill steel threads systematically helps opening the threads, increase drill rod life and Minimizes rattling time.
Thread Greasing system consists of a rod greasing unit (5 gallon bucket), injector and electric controls. The greaser is activated with a pedal switch located in the cabin. The special Sandvik grease, developed for this purpose, provides protection against corrosion and metal to metal contact, It is sprayed through nozzle to threads when adding next rod to the drill string.
Note: Thread Greasing System is part of the full cycle drilling automatics system. It automatically distributes lubricant when rod is added.
