LPR friction-welded drill rods 67 – 140 mm
LPR rods are friction welded, specially hardened and made of the highest steel quality. The advantage of friction welding is that different steel qualities can be chosen for the mid-body and the ends, combining a high quality alloy steel for the ends, increasing the strength in the threads where it is required, with a light and thin material in between. LPR rods have a special surface hardening on the ends, giving good wear resistance and swift and easy joining. The rods have 4 spanner flats on each pin and box end. Thread protectors are available as an optional extra. The rods can be used both for DTH hammer and for rotary drilling.
