Atlas Copco Diamondback Drill Has Modular Components

July 23, 2015

With 40,000 pounds of pullback and 30,000 pounds of pulldown, the Diamondback multipurpose drill rig can be configured to meet user needs. Built with a modular design, the rig’s bolt-on components eliminate the need for special kits, makeshift fabrications, or the acquisition of a second rig, Atlas Copco says.

The rig is mounted on a 600-horsepower Peterbilt truck, and drilling operations are powered by a a PTO. An optional deck engine module accommodates the use of a separate engine for drilling. The drill can be used at angles from 90 degrees vertical to 45 degrees inclined.

End-users can specify air and mud package, rod carousel or box, automated rod handling systems (or none), rotary head type, spindle size, 34- or 38-foot tubular tower, and carrier-mounted or tower-mounted table. Two tables are available, offering either a 24-inch opening or 17-inch opening.

The driller’s console pivots for visibility of any operation taking place, even with the head slid to the right side for running casing, the company says.
