PCD Bearings for Thrust Loads

In down-hole drilling tools, large thrust loads can result from drilling and from the hydraulic loading caused by drilling mud flowing through tool components. US Synthetic PCD bearings provide a high-performance alternative to conventional bearings. PCD bearings are virtually impervious to abrasive particles in the drilling mud that often cause ball bearings to wear out more quickly.

Wear and Custom Applications

Polycrystalline diamond is an extremely wear resistant material that can be used to protect drilling tool components from abrasive wear caused by contact between the exterior of the tool and the bore-hole wall.

US Synthetic wear parts made of PCD can be used on internal drilling tool components to protect critical surfaces from erosion caused by high-velocity abrasive fluids. In one case, PCD has been used as a replacement for tungsten carbide components that were subjected to accelerated erosion.
