Reaming / Stabilizing

The products in this group are used to:

  • Ream drill holes to industry standard gauge sizes,
  • Stabilize rotating drill string components to control the angular deviation of the drill hole.

Reaming tools and stabilizing tools are distinguished by the type of hard material that has been embedded in the tool’s matrix-body ring. Reaming tools are typically set with synthetic diamond (a cutting material) as opposed to stabilizing tools that are typically set with tungsten-carbide (a non-cutting material).

The specific products in this group include:

  • For Reaming: Reaming shells and back-end reamers,
  • For Stabilizing: Adapter couplings, locking couplings and in-line drill rod stabilizers.
