10. Rod & casing handling devices


Fraste FRH clamp is a simple and safe hydraulic device intended for the manipulation and add or withdraw of drilling rods and casings during drilling works with equipment intended for micropiles, bolts, anchors, geothermal energy, water wells etc.

Designed to be used as an implement on midi excavators with a weight range of 5 to 12 tons, they can jointly handle rods and casing. Equipped with 360º rotating swivel and hydraulic swing cylinder +/- 45º commanded by proportional distributors make the positioning between threads precise and

The installation is simple, normally taking the pressure of the aux line and operating all the movements through the joystick of the excavator itself.

For customers who do not have or prefer the option of renting the excavator it is possible to opt for a radio remote control, thus avoiding having to use control elements of the excavator itself.

The new safety regulations for drilling machines establish the use of a protection
guard that covers all those moving parts (rotation, feed and jaws) during drilling. The use of clamps favors speed and safety during the work of adding rods and avoiding possible accidents and casualties of personnel on site.
