Jet Nozzle Assembly – Series 65 (316 Stainless Steel)
Our stainless-steel components have proven to improve durability, reducing damage caused by rust and corrosion to the body and nozzle retaining threads significantly reducing maintenance and costly tool repairs”. More importantly nozzle sizes can be quickly changed out in the field, without costly delays and/or down time, allowing the operator to get back on bottom, focusing on production.
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.
High pressure flow, exiting the nozzles adjacent the cutting face, washes cuttings away from the cutting surface thus helping to increase the ROP, while improving the life of the cutters. Efficiently dislodging and moving 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 of fixed mechanical cutters.
The socket weldment can be ordered in two materials, C1045 Alloy Steel and 316 Stainless Steel.
Failsafe Nozzle Tool
A redesign of the Smith slotted extraction tool has virtually eliminated the problems associated with the design, i.e stripping of the tool and/or retainer slots.
Our retainer design uses a standard 1/2″ (S65) or 3/8″ (S45) socket/breaker bar for removing retainers and nozzles. This improved design eliminating the downtime resulting from damaged tools and/or nozzle slots.
