Manufacturing innovations in PDC bearing technology continues to deliver performance and reliability in down-hole drilling motors.
4 ¾” PDC Thrust Bearings For Turbo-drills
GTD have optimised the complete manufacturing process of the bearing sets to enhance the material and thermal properties of polycrystalline diamond compact (PDC) cutters. This new PDC bearing manufacturing technology has enabled drilling operators to increase down-hole turbine and motor performance and durability in challenging high pressure and high temperature drilling environments.
Advanced PDC bearings have been one of the most important developments in the increased usage of turbo-drill systems. High quality PDC cutters/inserts along with leading-edge manufacturing techniques provides outstanding resistance to compression loads, minimal frictional losses, under high temperatures.
GTD extensive research and constant innovation continues to help customers drill faster for longer periods of time without turbo-drill maintenance.
