Solid Stellite components are often used in severe down-hole mud flow applications, particularly in MWD/LWD and mud motor tools. Extending the life of your down-hole systems reduces the requirement for wear-related trips, allowing you to maximize well economics. Components may be manufactured with high-wear materials only in those areas where high-wear occurs, reducing component cost. Full in-house machining delivers complete components, to your print, ready for use when they arrive on your dock.
