Our RS++ Reaming Shells are reinforced with both natural and synthetic diamonds to allow optimal reaming of the bore hole while maintaining precise gage control. The double plus sign in the name represents the two main features of this exclusive product: the SupraSpherical diamonds and the embedded wear indicator.
The RS++ features a reinforced diamond ring surface using natural diamonds and a unique ‘SupraSpherical’ technology of refractory metals imbedded pellets in its matrix. It provides dynamic protection of the surface. All RS++ reaming shells are leading-edge reinforced with large thermally stable polycrystalline (TSP) diamond pins for better wear pattern control and to maximize diamond volume in high-wear zones.
The RS++ also features a patent pending Wear Indicator bar to identify how much life is remaining. This helps to maintain better control of the borehole outside diameter. The Wear Indicator gradually wears away over time, and when it disappears, that is the indication that the reaming shell needs to be replaced.
