A tricone drill bit is a mechanical drill bit used to drill into various formations. This drill bit is especially suitable for drilling medium to hard rock formations. Besides diamond, tricone bits are made from various metals, including tungsten carbide. The sintered tungsten carbide tools have better wear resistance and can withstand higher temperatures. They can also improve load capacity and seizure resistance. To find out whether you should purchase a tricone drill bit, you should look at its appearance and serial number on the box.
This roller bit is equipped with a sleeve that protects the cone shell during drilling. It increases the mechanical drilling speed, diameter retention capacity, and drilling quality of the bit. In addition, it can increase ROP and working life. The sleeve is made of durable materials with excellent strength, elasticity, and temperature resistance. These properties make tricone drill bits a superior choice for many drilling applications.
While selecting a tricone drill bit, you must consider its durability and its capacity for different formation types. Soft formations require long projection teeth with high offset cones. These drill bits are durable and need little maintenance, but they do require high-quality wear-resistant hardfacing to control wear. Medium-hard formations require short projection teeth and reduced crest length. Wear-resistant hardfacing provides good breakage resistance and extends the life of a tricone drill bit.
When selecting a drill cone bit, you must consider the type of rock formation you'll be drilling. Hard rock formations require different bits with different types of teeth. Hard rock formations require a tricone drill bit with tungsten carbide insert. Despite the name, a tricone drill bit will provide a deep hole. For the best results, use a tricone bit that matches the rock formation you'll be drilling in.
