Flagship Drill Changes The Game In The Pilbara

Today Enerflow Mining Services, a progressive and innovative company specialising in fabrication, maintenance, labour hire and specialist services to the mining industry in WA celebrates the latest achievement, the commissioning and hire of the flagship SKF Infinity Drill.  After delivery of the original rig to the Wangara premises back on the 01/03/2018 working under the leadership of the Mechanical and Drill Director Gareth Moody the SKF Infinity transformed into a reliable performer that has been quickly snapped up by one of the biggest producers in the Pilbara.

The transformation took 68 days and nearly 3000-man hours and has seen testing, certification of registered components, a rebuilt carousel, upgraded to 7 inch rods, rebuilt feed cylinder, refurbed cab and controls, refurb of rotatory head and motor, rebuilt deck and gangplank, extensive lineboring to mast pivot weldments and modified deck mounts with bushes, rebuilt mast lock system, upgraded mast raise cylinder keepers, rebuilt raise cylinders, hydraulic motor overhauls, upgraded sealed electrical connections throughout, air system valving changes and repairs and a full host of safety features including state of the art visual and lighting instruments. Weighing in at over 80t the full support of the Enerflow team was required to coordinate the transformation and now the 2000km trip ahead of schedule into the centre of the Iron Ore heart of WA.

On speaking with the Drill Director Gareth, he had this to say:

“The SKF Infinity is capable of a 12m single pass hole which provides some of the fastest drilling times seen in the Pilbara returning the client not only exceptional return on investment, but the ongoing prevision of the service kits and labour further cements Enerflow as an emerging and leading provider to the industry.”

“The open nature of the drill provides the onsite service team easy access and reduced downtime which will result in more drill meters, more processing, more returns and most importantly more jobs for West Australians”

The SKF Infinity as pictured with the iconic Enerflow green back spider has some impressive statistics chalked up already. 20,000L of fluids, driven by a 900hp diesel motor, producing 80t of drill head pressure and capable of drilling rotary and hammer drilling with 4 onboard drill rods. This drill is safe to say, the biggest diversification of the Enerflow business and cements the name within the Pilbara as the company that delivers innovation, quality and safety.
