Straightline Adapts Armadrillco Technology, Upgrades HDD Tooling Platform

Following its recent acquisition of Armadrillco, Straightline HDD has further solidified its position as a leader in hard-condition tooling. By announcing the adaptation of the Armadrillco transmitter housing to the RockEye Hammer System, Straightline has taken a significant step in diffusing the patented Armadrillco technology throughout Straightline HDD tooling platforms.

The Armadrillco side-load housing technology gives users easy access to electronics, larger capacity fluid/air passages and improved durability. The housing’s patented Arma-Loc system is a field-proven design that gives users quick access to electronics by removing a single pin. Free from threads, the Arma-Loc system virtually eliminates problems associated with damaged or over-torqued bolts, as well as vibration-induced lid failure.

Working in tandem with the Arma-Loc lid security system, a patented urethane and O-ring system is designed to seal and protect the sonde cavity from fluid/debris infiltration. The system also forms a cushioned platform that shields valuable electronics from punishing vibration and heat produced by a hammer working in harsh rock environments.

Large internal passages, up to 1-inch diameter, represent a significant improvement in air/fluid flow. The larger passages are capable of delivering air volume up to 1,200 CFM and fluid volume of 300+ gallons per minute.

Hutchinson, KS-based Straightline specializes in the design, development and manufacture of the industry’s most extensive range of HDD equipment and products – both in-stock and custom-built – with experience in every ground condition possible across North America, Australia, Europe and Asia.
