Century Products, Inc. hole openers

August 2009 Vol. 236 No. 8

Century Products, Inc. offers custom-built hole openers ranging in size from 24-60 inches.

The company has expanded its arsenal of replaceable arm and cone assemblies to include its most recent design of 26-inch tungsten carbide inserts (TCI) cones, manufactured with the largest carbides made to date. Along with large diameter, which significantly reduces the number of cone revolutions per hole opener revolution, the extremely large tungsten carbide inserts allow more weight to be distributed per insert, increasing the rate of penetration. This offers the HDD industry extended run times before a hole opener reaches its point of failure. 262-820-3600, todd@centuryproducts.net, jeff@centuryproducts.net, www.centuryproducts.net.
