No. 456,772 Claims priority, application France, June 4, 1964, 976,992; Mar. 2, 1965, 7,649 11 Claims. (Cl. 175-393) ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE A rotatable drilling tool having fluid blades of the full body or ring type with a central input conduit for the passage of drilling fluid under pressure, a head having areas provided with cutting elements and areas without cutting elements alternating with said cutting areas, vents for distributing the drilling fluid opening on to the areas and each being connected to the central conduit; the vents being constituted by elements whose resistance to abrasion is greater than that of the matrix of the tool.

 

The present invention relates to improvements in rotatable drilling tools having fluid blades, as well as a method of manufacturing a drilling tool of this type.

 

The invention relates more particularly to rotatable drilling tools having fluid blades of the full body or ring type, comprising a central input conduit or channel for the passage of a drilling fluid under pressure, a head having areas provided with cutting elements, such as diamonds, cutting edges made of tungsten carbide, or even individual cutting blades, and areas without cutting elements, these areas alternating, and the areas without cutting elements being generally located in a rearward position with respect to the areas having the cutting elements, vents for distributing the drilling fluid arranged in the head perpendicularly to said areas, and opening out on to said area provided with cutting elements and/or on the areas without cutting elements, and each connected to the central conduit or channel of the tool.

 

It is known that the efliciency of such a tool, ie its speed of advance, which is a function of the rotation speed of the tool and of its bearing pressure on the ground, in addition depends on the efficiency of the jet of the drilling fluid which itself depends upon the speed of the drilling fluid at the output of the vent, upon the distance between the lower extremity of the vent and the cutting face, and upon the abrasive properties and the density of the drilling fluid.

 

In drilling tools of the above mentioned type, the vents do not stand up to the abrasive elfects of the drilling fluid for a suflicient time, so that it is not possible to maintain the jet of fluid at a speed corresponding to its maximum efliciency. Moreover, when the vents are situated in the areas having no cutting elements, which areas are generally rearward of the cutting areas so as to allow the drilling fluid to evacuate the swarf and cuttings, the distance between the lower extremity of the vents and the cutting face is sufliciently large so that the efficiency of the jet is further diminished.

 

The present invention obviates or minimizes all the above mentioned disadvantages and has for a particular object the production of a drilling tool of the above mentioned type, the vents of which have a resistance which is suflicient to allow the use of a speed for the vents, maximum density and abrasiveuess of the drilling fluid, compatible with the drilling installation, as well as to permit the arrangement of the vents at a minimum distance from the cutting face, which distance must .be kept for a period which is at least as long as the life of the cutting elements of the areas themselves.

 

To this end, according to the invention, the vents of the rotatable drilling tool having fluid blades are constituted by elements, the resistance to abrasion of which is greater than that of the matrix of the tool and substantially equal to that of the cutting elements.

 

The elements constituting the vents are preferably embedded in the matrix and extend to the interior of the fluid input conduit or channel, so as to form at least one part of said conduit or channel in its narrow area, and so as to protect the matrix up to an area of the conduit or channel where the speed of the drilling fluid is sufliciently low.

 

The lower end of each of the vents may protrude beyond the surface of the areas without cutting elements, in which areas said vents are arranged, and are located at a distance from the cutting face which is substantially equal to the distance between the corresponding latitudinal line of the areas provided with cutting elements and the cutting face, i.e. at a distance which is substantially equal to the height of the arrangement of the actual cutting elements themselves.

From Westward plastics group to Brissco: Delivering More than Materials

Westward Group to Brissco Plastics

Plastic has been around for many decades now. It would hard to imagine life today without plastic and all its various practical uses and applications. It is almost as ubiquitous as the water we drink and the air we breathe. We wear it, sit on it, play with it, sing with it, ride with it, fly with it, work with it and live with it every minute of our lives. Thanks to plastic manufacturers, we have a material that is cheap to manufacture and easy to mould into whatever shape and use we can come up with.

 

One manufacturer of plastics that has been around for quite a while is Brissco Plastics. Since it was established in 1948, Brissco has remained a family-owned business and has been fortunate to having a very dependable workforce. Many of Brissco’s production staff have been with the company for more than 25 years and possess a vast wealth of knowledge and experience. As an independent company, it has the flexibility (just like plastic!) to cater to the needs of its customers and appreciate that the 'extra attention to detail' is where it can make a big difference.

 

Brissco Plastics is a division of Brissco (Equipment) Ltd, formed in 2011 by the acquisition of Westward Plastics, which had been in business since 1984 and specialising in the supply and fabrication of industrial, display and engineering plastic materials throughout the United Kingdom.

 

Brissco has developed strong partnerships with many suppliers, enabling it to offer a range of quality brand leading products such as Perspex, Plexiglas and Altuglas Acrylics, Makrolon and Marlon Polycarbonates, Vivak and Apet Polyester, Foamalux and Westfoam Foam PVC's, Alliance Aluminium Composite, Swish, Floplast, Exitex and Living Space Upvc Building Materials.

 

To augment its range of branded leading materials, it offers offer its customers customized plastic fabrication service, using the latest CNC processing equipment, together with traditional fabrication skills which allow it to provide repeatable accuracy and quality in the manufacture of fabricated products for industrial and commercial use, fully supported by its team of technically-experienced staff.

 

With in-house facilities which include screen-printing, print-finishing, plastic fabrication as well as the distribution of, both, building plastics and semi-finished plastic (in sheet, rod and tube form), Brissco continues to provide its customers more than just materials.

 

Indeed, we seem to take it for granted; but plastics mean a modern, comfortable and convenient life for us all.
