Sometimes I like to write about how a customer may have solved a particular drilling problem. Like a brainstorm, learning about one company’s ideas can inspire others to find different solutions. So today’s blog is about how we helped a customer in the USA come up with a solution to their drilling challenge.
We’ve talked a lot in previous blogs about the importance of choosing the right core bit and the right core bit configuration, so I think it is time we talk about getting the most out of your core bit. There are many variables that can cause a really good core bit to underperform. It can be a change in ground conditions, drilling parameter or simply lack of experience. One of the best ways to determine what is off is to examine the wear profile of your bit crown and change drilling parameters if necessary.
