Hercules roller-cone drill bits provide a combination of durability, control, and speed that enhances the efficiency of any operation. Field-proven design philosophies provide stable and reliable directional performance in interbedded and intrusive formations to drill harsh and directional sections faster and more consistently. Each bit is equipped with a premium bearing system and designed with optimized hydraulics for increased cleaning and efficient drilling.
Re-engineered lug design provides:
- Greater stability – Reduces G-forces, improves cutting structure life, and provides higher instantaneous and average rate of penetration
- Efficient cone cleaning and cuttings removal – Ensures the bit engages new rock on every rotation
- Increased durability – More effective seal life and bearing reliability
- Better steerability – Reduced length decreases bit-to-bend, enhancing directional capabilities and lowering stress during rotation
- Hard rock
- Low angle
