Rotary Drilling relies upon high rotational speeds and thrust without percussion to achievethe desired effect and outputs. In rotary drilling, the rock is made to fracture by means of a combination of “pull down” pressure on the bit and rotational power “torque”. Weight is applied to gouge, chip and grind the rock. Tricone rotary bits are sometimes a good alternative to a DTH hammer.
