Bead Recovery Unit

Bead Recovery Units recover and reuse drilling beads during drilling operations. This recycling process allows for 90% to 98% of the LubriGlideā„¢ beads to be recovered and reintroduced into the drilling fluid, eliminating the need for new product. The Bead Recovery Unit increases drilling efficiency by reducing torque, drag and increasing ROP. These units are equally effective in all mud systems including oil-based, water-based and silicate muds.
