BlueFire’s team is customizing its highly engineered drilling equipment for very deep, high pressure environments and dense, hard rock formations,” said chairman and CEO of BlueFire Equipment Corporation, William A Blackwell said. We are casting these tungsten carbide PDC bits using our company’s advanced manufacturing techniques and made-to-order design specifications. The result is an improved product with the same cost and time saving attributes as our previous designs.”

BlueFire bits employ large cutter face volumes for rapid drilling of shales, sandstones, limestones and sticky clays. Company findings indicate a decrease of more than 30% in temperature on the cutting surfaces, drastically reducing cutter wear and extending the life of the bit.
