Increase productivity and reduce environmental impact

"The Sandvik CMS will save us thousands of gallons of fuel every year"

Sandvik Compressor Management System (CMS) conservation and productivity

The patented Sandvik Compressor Management System (CMS) tackles the two primary issues facing mines today:

  • Increasing productivity
  • Reducing environmental impact

The Sandvik CMS provides a solution to the inherent inefficiencies of rotary blast hole drills that have a direct connection between the engine and compressor.

How does it work?

The system works by isolating the compressor and eliminating the need to maintain pressure when the machine is not drilling. This reduces the load on the engine saving a significant amount of fuel and reducing wear and tear on the engine.

There are many advantages to the Sandvik CMS during the whole drilling process, including:

  • during start-up and shut-down (including being ideal for start-up in cold weather)
  • its easy operation
  • fuel reduction of up to 35%
  • a reduced financial and environmental impact
  • its automatic adjusting for efficiency
  • the aftermarket service we offer on your machine
