PCD Bearings for Radial Loads

Our PDC radial bearings are designed to carry the radial, or side loads, in down-hole drilling tools. US Synthetic bearings offer a more abrasive resistant bearing with the potential to increase tool life, reliability, and side load carrying capacity than tungsten carbide alternatives.

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.
