Jet Nozzle Assembly – Series 65 (Stainless Steel Type 316)
“Our stainless steel assembles have proven to reduce damage caused by rust and corrosion, reducing maintenance and costly tool repairs”.
The series 65 jet nozzle assembly comprises of a four part assembly, comprising of a weld on socket, tungsten carbide jet nozzle, threaded nozzle retaining jacket and O-ring. This assembly is ideal when building in-hole tools where high presser fluid is used to aid in the cutting (hole opening) by flushing the cutting surface, thus extending the life of the cutters and aiding in the cutting of formations .
Properly placed jet nozzles are proven to increase the rate of penetration (ROP). Increased ROP, reduces time and cost of the hole-opening operation thus reducing the overall operating cost to the contractor.
High pressure flow, exiting the nozzles adjacent the cutting face, washes cuttings away from the cutting surface helping increase the rate of penetration (ROP) and the life of the cutters. By efficiently removing the cuttings away from the leading edge of the cutter insurers that cuttings are not being re-cut or act as an abrasives which will shorten the life of any cutter.
The socket weldment can be ordered in two materials, Steel Alloy as well as 316 Stainless Steel.
Welding Stainless Steel to Mild Steel
“Use 309L (including ER309LSi) when joining mild steel or low alloy steel to stainless steels, for joining dissimilar stainless steels such as 409 to itself or to 304L stainless, as well as for joining 309 base metal. CG-12 is the cast equivalent of 309. Some 308L applications may be substituted with 309L filler metal, but 316L or 316 applications generally require molybdenum and 309L contains no molybdenum.”
BRITISH STAINLESS-STEEL ASSOCIATION
“316L (including ER316LSi) filler metal should be used with 316L and 316 base metals. … Use 309L (including ER309LSi) when joining mild steel or low alloy steel to stainless steels, for joining dissimilar stainless steels such as 409 to itself or to 304L stainless, as well as for joining 309 base metal.”
Hobart Filler Metals
“Welding differing materials, such as stainless steel and carbon steel, can be a more economical choice and it can improve durability of the completed components”
