Schramm Australia’s patented Drill Rod Retention System designed to prevent accidental Rod Falls whilst loading and unloading Rods from Rod Loaders. The patented clamping mechanism is controlled by a PLC enabling the system to be intrinsically safe by preventing early or accidental release. Infield testing has shown that Drill Rod tripping time is not affected by the introduction of the Rod Retainers thus increasing safety and not decreasing production.
