The VIKING family includes matrices that cover an extremely wide range of ground conditions. The core bits perform extremely well in formations that vary between hard and soft, consolidated and broken, abrasive and non-abrasive. This makes them the perfect choice for frequently changing conditions as well as a safe choice for new projects where the geology may not be known. Most of matrices within this family are available with higher crown configurations, which provides long bit life. All matrices are manufactured with the highest quality diamonds and alloys using extremely well controlled manufacturing process to ensure sustained quality.
The SHRED is a tough core bit that is ideal for use in extremely broken and/or abrasive ground. It is a very popular choice for applications where triple tube core barrels are necessary due to core recovery challenges.
This popular matrix has an excellent ability to cut hard rock well while withstanding the very tough conditions that occur when ground is broken and abrasive. To provide suitability for a variety of drilling projects, this matrix is available with any crown configuration.
With a similar matrix composition to the AZURE, the KUBY is a popular choice for harder formations. Available in all crown configurations, it is suitable for a wide variety of drilling projects.
The LAVA is an excellent core bit for hard to very hard formations where efficient cutting is a challenge. It features a soft matrix with fine diamonds. This is the matrix where a higher crown makes perfect sense if the ground formation is competent and not too abrasive.
With its specialized matrix, the FERRO works well with medium to hard ground but this core bit excels when used in iron ore formations that are abrasive and broken. It provides exceptional life span in this challenging application.
KRAKEN is the last fighter standing. When facing impossibly tough conditions such as extremely hard ground, this matrix delivers.
