For Extension Rod and M/F steel process, the below two different types of heat treatment are used to strengthen high speed and powerful percussive drill string components to maximize their performance and reliability. Longer steel larger in diameter, conventional extension steel, Hexagonal and round cross sections are available.
- Carburization is a process used to harden the entire rod surface both internally and externally to strengthen and extend the life of the rod.
- High Frequency Induction is a process where only the thread ends of the rod are hardened to lengthen thread life.
