Engineered with application specific technology the COMPASS bits provide excellent steerability and high rates of penetration even in limited WOB applications. The bearing provides reliable performance in deep hole, long reach sections where increased temperatures and motor RPM’s are commonly encountered.

Features / Benefits

Advanced Cutting Structure and Gauge
Highly responsive cutting structures designed for increased drilling speed and steering response. Dense shirttail protection in the gauge of the slimhole bits provides superior durability in directional applications. Custom gauge row designs are available to optimize the bit for specific drilling applications.

Patented Conical Seal Gland
Constructed to resist cuttings intrusion, the unique geometry of the seal gland provides benefits during high angle directional drilling.

High Temperature and Lubricity Grease
Advanced synthetic grease allows for improved lubrication and greater reliability in high speed motor applications.

Advanced Bearing Metallurgy
COMPASS bits are equipped with a sliver plated journal bearing bushing, silver plated thrust washer, pilot pin and bearing hard metal alloy for increased durability and reliability.
