Mincon Hole Control ia a unique cost saving fluid formulated to speed up hole collaring, reduce collar slooughing and stabilize the bore hole. Hole control can be used with air-rotary tri-cone, down the hole hammers and all types of top hammer drills (surface and underground). Mincon Hole Control reduces re-drilling of a borehole, due to hole collapse or transference between adjacent bores through cracks and voids in the rock. It aids in eliminating regrinding of cuttings, thus creating bigger chips for sampling purposes and increasing penetration rates. Using Mincon Hole Control leaves a sticky, neatly stacked cuttings pile that is not prone to sloughing prior to loading the hole. It acts as a dust suppressant and reduces wind blown fines. Hole Control allows blast holes to be fully loaded, helping to optimize blasting operations and creating a clean smooth floor. Mincon Hole Control speeds up borehole collaring, thereby increasing production.
The approximate mix ratio to achieve tank mix suitable for most drilling and borehole conditions is approximately 1-2 quart(s) of HOLE CONTROL to 250 US gallons of water (or 1-2 Liter(s) of HOLE CONTROL to 1000 Liters of water). Naturally acidic water sources will require more Hole Control additive to achieve the required viscosity.
