The silencer surrounding the feed on the SmartROC drill rig established a new standard for noise reduction when it was first introduced at the Maxpo show in Finland in 2003. Now those levels have been reduced even further.
The optional silence kit has been upgraded for sound dampening and vibration resulting in a further reduction in drilling noise by an additional 2 dB (A) to a total sound power reduction of 12 dB (A).
The kit is also more robust and easier to use. It has an improved aluminium chassis, better lighting and access hatches along its entire length making the feed and drilling components easier to inspect and service.
Epiroc operated under the trademark “Atlas Copco” prior to January 1, 2018.
