Electro-pulse method of rock fracturing and drilling wells

Article preview

Traditional methods of destroying and processing rocks and artificial materials, based on mechanical destruction, have practically approached the limit of their technical capabilities. The inevitable disadvantage of the most common mechanical methods of fracture, as a consequence of using intense pressure on the rock, are high specific energy costs, low durability and high wear of the fracturing tool.
