Dual Breakout Rod Clamp System is a patented rod handling system that allows for the safe and efficient breakout and makeup of drill rods. The system uses two hydraulically operated clamps to grip the drill rod, providing a secure and stable platform for breakout or makeup. The clamps can be independently controlled, allowing for precise alignment of the drill rod.
Rod Clamp System
Dual Breakout Rod Clamp System has a number of advantages over traditional rod handling methods.
