AVD Drill masts
AVD ™ drill rigs are among the most robust in their class. Their superior design to the industry standard makes them a component that can be trusted for a long time. AVD ™ drill rigs also offer several options that make them easier to use and more reliable.
Fabricated in-house, the welded and machined beams from the AVD drill mast made with thicker steel plates make it the most robust mast in its class. Tested beyond the advertised rating.
Over-designed to minimize the forces distributed in the plates, slides and bolts for a superior lifetime and lower maintenance required.
The design of the AVD drill masts is thought out very simply, thus favoring the training of new drillers.
Critical structural welds are certified by an independent laboratory every time.
Drill mast options
Remote locking mechanism for the mast extension
During the setup and removal of the drill rig, this option allows the driller to operate the locking mechanism from inside the drill, standing on the drill floor while industry standard requires climbing on the roof of the drill and insert a pin manually.
This device is an auxiliary clamp mounted at the bottom of the mast and on a pivot. It could be used to break (undo) casing joints or other.
This system is a fixed jaw mounted at the bottom of the drill mast that allows to hold the casing when needed.
HD Bolted drill head casing and mast table
This new fastening system has the effect of increasing structural robustness of the assembly in order to reduce the maintenance required.
Gortrac™ hydraulic hose carrier system
This hydraulic hose carrier and support system significantly reduces the maintenance required on the hydraulic hoses, increases safety and reduces the risk of leaks.
Integral rod support system.
This integral rod support system eliminates potential pinch points and makes drillers' work easier by increasing ergonomics.
