Turbo-Poly Beads Plus

Lubricant Infused Spherical Beads

Product Summary

Turbo-Chem’s Poly Beads Plus are spherical functionalized co-polymer beads that provide instant mechanical stand-off at low pressure, with micro-channels designed to release the infused liquid lubricant at a higher impact pressure. As the beads exit the bit, a fraction of them collapse and deform, releasing the lubricant and immediately impacting points of friction. As the beads travel, more of them will collapse at points of impact around the drill string and BHA releasing further infused lubricants.
