tricone bits

We have in stock over three hundred different references and more than 5000 tricone bits with steel or TCI teeth. Our tricone bits are versatile and handle changing ground conditions.

what about our Re-Tip Steel Tooth or TCI Tricone Drill Bits?

Our Re-tip tricone bits are gently used bits that usually come from the oil fields.

They are refurbished for use in non-oilfield rotary applications, such as water wells, HDD, and construction type drilling.

These bits offer significant cost savings over new bits.

We offer a wide range of premium, oil field quality re-tip steel tooth bits in different sizes.

Our Re-tip bits are available for use in soft, medium, and hard formations.

Conventional drill rods are available in mid-weight steel and or aluminum providing you with ergonomic flexibility which will improve your handling capabilities under the most strenuous of conditions. Rod threads for mineral exploration applications are typically WJ type threads, and are used with conventional style core barrels.

What is the difference between sealed bearing bits and non-sealed bearing bits in Tricones?

The bearings are what make the cones on a Tricone spin.

There are four common types of bearings:
– standard open roller bearings
– air-cooled roller bearings
– sealed roller bearings
– sealed journal (friction) bearings.

Let’s take a look into these different types of bearings, and try to explain the differences.

Sealed Roller Bearings have some of the features of the non-sealed open bearings, but longer lifetime because the bearings are sealed with an O’ Ring Seal.

A lubrication and compensator system prevents leakage into the bearing system and stops the possibility of debris blocking the bearing as well as leakage of grease.

Standard open roller bearings are bearings without a seal.

This means that the bearings are open to outside debris, which can enter through the cone.

The advantage of an open bearing bit is that they are usually cheaper. They are ideal for drilling shallow holes, in the hundreds of feet. If drilling deeper holes with an open bearing bit you will probably have to pull it out every couple hundred feet to clean out the debris in the cones to free them up.

What are Leave in the Hole bits used for ?

Leave in the Hole bits are used for foundations, pilings, and anchor type systems where the bit is left in the hole and not retrieved.

BestDrillingBits.com offers New Leave in the Hole Bits.

These bits have been specifically made for leave in the hole applications. They are unthreaded, which makes them less expensive and easier to weld to.

These ARE NOT RE-RUN or REBUILT bits !!!
