How is Dull Grading Useful? Quick and simple way to describe the dull condition inan internationally recognized format A picture is worth a 1,000 words However, no bit photos are in the daily drilling report Identifies issues and improves future bit selection Bit balling Abrasive formation Cutter impact and vibrations Lighter or heavier set drill bit PDC vs Roller Cone

Tip: Inner & Outer: Cutter Wear The wear value (0-8) is the average wear condition, not the maximumamount of wear on one cutter. What is the minimum and maximum cutter wear? The average will be between the minimum and maximum values Is it closer to the minimum or maximum value? Establish the “4” cutter center line, 50% wear condition.Then estimate “2”, 25% wear condition.Does the cutter wear look closer to “1”, “2” or “3”. (See below)4Step 1)Establish the center line, “4”24Step 2)Estimate “2”, 50% fromcenter line to cutter tip1234Step 3)Is the wear closer to “1”,“2” or “3”?

Tip: Inner & Outer: Cutter Wear Cutters with no wear are oftenincorrectly graded 1-1 to indicatethe bit is used. 0-0 is the correct grading Gauge, Gauge Pad & Up Drillcutters are not included in theGaugeOuter Row cutter wear calculation.GaugePadUp Drill

Tip: Inner & Outer: Cutter Wear Secondary row cutters are includedin the Average Cutter Wearcalculation.“0”Double Row Cutter Cutter wear is measured across thediamond table and not the carbidesubstrate. If the diamond is missingand the carbide is intact, the cutter isgraded as an “8”.DL - Delaminated Cutter (Non-IADC)“1”

Tip: Dull Characteristic Box 3 is dedicated for “Cutter” information. If there are no cutter dull characteristic, then indicate “NO”. If there are many notable characteristics on the bit, pickthe one that hindered performance or caused the bit to bepulled out of hole. For example: WT and not HC Only one cutter characteristic code in Box 3 Non-IADC practices: Multiple codes in one box. Ie. BT/HC DL – Cutter Delamination, separation at the diamond-carbidesubstrate interface. SP – Cutter Spalling, thin layers of diamond separated from thecutter face.

Tip: Location of Primary Dull “S” Shoulder – Rounded shoulder profiles are commonly used on PDC bits. “T” Taper – Flat taper profiles are not commonly used on PDC bits. Shoulder & Taper - The combination of a curved shoulder and flat taperprofile is extremely uncommon on PDC bits. Historically used on naturaldiamond and TSP products with long profiles.S: Shoulder – Curved (shown)T: Taper - Straight

Tip: Gauge UndersizeGauge cutters are pre-ground during themanufacturing process. The amount of gaugecutter grind can vary by company and product line.

Tip: Gauge UndersizeThe gauge pad might be tapered orstepped. Thus, measure the largestdiameter, typically the gauge cutters.LargestDiameterStep Gauge1-2mm undersizeLargestDiameter?

Tip: Gauge Undersize “I” In-Gauge is commonly mistaken as “1”, 1/16th. Unofficially, “0” or “IN” are used in place of “I”. Use a “No-Go” gauge ring when dull grading PDC & Roller cones bits. “No-Go” gauge ring: Measures minimum OD tolerance. “Go” gauge ring: Measures maximum OD tolerance. PDC and Roller cone bits use different gauge rings.It is not suggested to use PDC & Roller cone rings interchangeably. PDC Bit tolerance: 0.000” to slightly undersized. Roller Cone Bit tolerance: -0.000” to slightly oversized.PDC & Fix Cutter BitDiameter RangeDiameter Tolerance(mm)Diameter Tolerance(inch)Up to and including 6 ¾” 0.00 / -0.38 0.000 / -0.015 6 ¾” and 9” 0.00 / -0.51 0.000 / -0.020 9” and 13 ¾” 0.00 / -0.76 0.000 / 0.030 13 ¾” and 17 ½” 0.00 / -1.14 0.000 / 0.045 17 ½” 0.00 / -1.60 0.000 / 0.063
