The harsh environment where drill heads are used is the ideal environment for Barden bearings, which are utilised on the drill shafts within the head. Extremes of vibration, temperature and corrosive conditions are all found in the oil and gas exploration industry. Barden tackles these concerns with hybrid bearings - steel rings with ceramic balls which allow a longer equipment life, increased reliability and faster speeds. Bearings are manufactured from Cronidur 30®, an advanced material offering increased corrosion resistance and a greater fatigue life.
