Bulroc UK Ltd has been involved in the design and manufacture of Percussive Down Hole Rock Drilling equipment for almost 40 years. The first Bulroc Down hole Hammer was introduced in 1976 and with its success, other sizes and models were gradually developed so that within the space of a few years, Bulroc were producing a range of valved and valveless hammers for drilling hole sizes ranging from 60mm through to 250mm diameter.
As Down Hole Hammer development continued, so did a range of complementary products including Shock Absorbers, Drill Tubes and Fishing Tools etc. Early in 1984, the company made a significant investment in plant and equipment necessary for the design and manufacture of a range of Button Bits to suit not only Bulroc Hammers but also all other makes of popular DTH Hammers.
At around this time, Bulroc developed the world’s first Reverse Circulation or Centre Sampling Hammer for the Mineral Exploration industry, a system that has now become widely accepted, particularly for gold exploration.
Continuing developments resulted in the introduction of the Hyper range of Hammers, replacing the original valveless design. Larger sizes of HYPER Hammers were developed along with a comprehensive range of Continuous Casing Systems for all types of Overburden Drilling applications so that currently, Bulroc produce DTH equipment capable of drilling holes up to 1100mm diameter.
Bulroc products are produced in a modern factory located in the heart of England some 250 Km north of London and employs the latest computer technology in its design and manufacturing facilities.
Bulroc UK Ltd has a policy of continuous product development aimed at improving the existing product range whilst at the same time, introducing new products to increase and extend the already wide applications for Down Hole Percussive Rock Drilling.
