Effective control of drilling water in underground mining and tunnelling

Designed to provide a safer, drier working environment, the Drill Water Capture System collects and separates spent drill water from the fines.  Captured water is delivered directly to the pump while the fine pieces of coal and rock are discharged to the ground.

Registered Design. Patent Pending.
