Rod Clamps

MPP’s line of single and double-acting rod “foot” clamps. The clamps are used primarily on diamond core and rotary drills to hold the drill string while making and breaking connections and preventing the rods from dropping down the hole. MPP rod clamps can be adapted to most rigs. The LW single-acting clamp is used on our MP1000 man-portable and Compact UG diamond drills. The LW clamp features a Christensen style single-acting design (spring close / hydraulic open) ideal for rigs with synchronized chuck and clamp. The MP500 double-acting clamp is used on our MP500 man-portable drill. The MP500 clamp has a double-acting cylinder design ideal for any rig that needs a simple, lightweight, easy to adapt clamp.
