Atlas Copco’s Hydraulic-Powered Core Drills Drive Through Tough Applications

Sat September 30, 2006 - National Edition
CEG



Designed for precise and efficient diamond core drilling, Atlas Copco hydraulic-powered core drills are ideal for difficult and demanding applications.

The drills are developed for free-hand use, but they also can be mounted on standard rigs. While primarily intended for drilling in rock, concrete and brickwork, the core drills can be converted with a drill chuck mounting for use in wood and steel applications. The drills also can be used underwater, making them suitable for wet diamond core drilling jobs.

Four models are available, the LCD 5, LCD 10, LCD 15 and LCD 24, all of which weigh 18 lbs. (8 kg).

The LCD 5 provides the widest drill diameter range of 3 to 8 in. (7.6 to 20 cm), with a rotation speed of 600 rpm. The LCD 24 drills the narrowest diameter of .5 to 1.2 in. (1.3 to 3 cm) at 2,400 rpm.

Oil flow of 5.3 gpm (20 Lpm) is required to operate each core drill.

Equipped with non-kickback operation, the drills provide added safety for working in confined areas such as close to walls and inside concrete sewer lines.

A wide range of hydraulic power packs is available to efficiently power the line of core drills. These units feature a power-on-demand system that automatically decreases the pack’s engine speed when the tool is disengaged, reducing fuel consumption and extending the life of the power pack.

Equipped with wheels and handles, a power pack can be easily moved around a job site to increase the drill’s flexibility. The drills and power packs are small enough to transport by pickup truck and store on a shelf when not in use.

All four drills come with standard 6.6-ft. (2 m) lightweight tail hoses with flat-face, quick-release couplings for easy connection to the power pack hose or to an extension hose. A water hose with on/off valves also comes standard.

An optional oil flow divider and extension hoses are available for running the drills off hydraulic-powered carriers.
