Drag bits are used in soft formations such as clay, sand, and in some cases very soft rock. They can not be used in hard rock formations or coarse gravel.
Industry uses for drag bits include: waterwell, mining, geothermal, environmental, and exploration drilling. When it is possible, drag bits can be used to drill pilot holes as they produce cuttings that are easy to log. The two styles of drag bits we offer are Step and Chevron type. Both types can be offered in either a 3-way or a 4-way.
