Tricone Drill Bits are designed for the most severe rotary blast-hole applications (from soft to extremely hard rocks) and cost-effective for a wide range of drilling operations. Their carbide shapes and cutting face arrangements are optimized for high wear resistance and improved rock fragmentation, and the aggressive, long-lasting cutting structure delivers a superior rate of penetration.
Tricone Drill Bits are subjected to new improved heat treatment technologies and advanced air-cooled bearing design which yields longer bit life and results in lower overall drilling costs. Manufacturers design the drilling bits to prevent cuttings and unbroken rock ridges from inflicting severe wear on the cone. The result is an improved working life. Also, the gauge row design improves resistance to diameter shrinkage.
Tricone Drill Bits has a lower cost of drilling in head-to-head tests conducted in copper, iron ore, and coal mines.
