Atlas Copco Secoroc now offers HDD operators the same Polycrystalline Diamond Compact (PDC) bits that deep-hole oil and gas drillers have found successful. The Secoroc Dirt Digger Premium line of bits is durable, offers high rates of penetration and can be easily repaired when required. Dirt Digger HDD bits are manufactured from 4140 steel and Atlas Copco’s proprietary hard-facing formula. Dirt Digger steel body bits offer greater design flexibility and reparability than matrix body bits, and have been proven in applications worldwide. Atlas Copco has been working with PDC bits since their early development and says they are happy to deliver that same drill bit technology to the HDD market.
