Improved performance in medium-strength, interbedded formations
The strength of the StrataBlade bit is the unique geometry of Strata concave diamond elements. A tapered ridge with a thicker diamond table significantly resists impact damage. And the distinctive concave feature decreases the effective cutter back-rake angle to cut deeper into rock. Combined, these characteristics increase cutting efficiency, delivering up to 35% higher instantaneous ROP with the same input energy. For deep lateral wells where weight transfer to the bit is a challenge, the StrataBlade bit enables better torque response at the bit for superior steerability and conformance to directional trajectories.
