Smith Bits engineers put more than a century of drilling expertise and experience into every Xplorer premium performance roller cone drill bit. We start by designing each bit using the proprietary IDEAS integrated dynamic design and analysis platform to ensure optimal drilling dynamics. As a result, Xplorer bits provide a range of options to help achieve your drilling objectives, no matter the depth or formation. Premium cutting structures, materials, and hydraulic options customize your application-specific bits for maximizing performance and durability in any environment.
Strategic hard-metal tooth placement and self-sharpening wear help to increase ROP over extended run lengths. Additionally, full hard-metal coverage over the entire tooth maximizes durability for improved bit life and run distance.
Offering two precisely configured seals with excellent material properties, Xplorer Gemini‚Ñ¢ dynamic twin-seal technology for drill bits exhibit consistent performance over long run intervals. The dual-seal system ensures high reliability for extended time periods, even with high rpm, heavy weight on bit (WOB), high mud weight, and severe dogleg.
