    THE TWISTER - TRADITIONAL

    SOFT - MEDIUM FORMATIONS

    The Twister's breakthrough design has democratized the mining industry. As an economic alternative to PDC bits, the Twister produces 90% of the results for only a third of the price. Designed to be run with traditional jet type fluid flow, in a work-over application, drilling cement, cast iron bridge plugs and retaining rings. The XG Twister features five jet type ports for high pressure fluid flow to break up and clean the bottom of the hole.

     

    All of these features lead to increased bit life and shorter drill out runs.
