Scrap Tricone drill bits still have value. Sturgeon Drilling Tools buys these bits and re purposes them in other industries or recycles them correctly. Even totally scrap TCI bits are worth more than scrap steel so don't just throw them away in your metal bin.
What's Important: Sturgeon Drilling Tools doesn't Acid Leach the carbide from bits. This process is common practice but creates toxic waste and just isn't a process we can support. We use heat and mechanical force to separate the carbide from the steel right here in North America.
What we buy: Used TCI tri cone bits (Oil and Gas, Mining, HDD) Used Raise Bore Mining Cutters Used HDD Hole enlargement reamers and Pilot bits
