DTH hammer is recognized as Down-the-Hole hammer. DTH hammer bits are screws attached to DTH hammers, which are used to drill holes through several rocks and associated materials. These bits are basically a small jackhammer screwed to the bottom of a drill string. The bits are made of numerous grades of tungsten carbide and are strong enough to break various kinds of rocks. The bits are available in various sizes from 2” to 36”, with all shanks, multiple head or face design and with numerous tungsten carbide styles to suit a huge variety of drilling conditions. The rate of penetration and bit life are the most vital criteria in selecting the right bit for particular application.
