As rock bit design becomes increasingly sophisticated, the ability to maximize the bit's hydraulic efficiency is critical to obtaining peak performance.

Multiple choices of nozzle length, nozzle diameter distribution and fluid jet trajectories on a hydraulically efficient body provide flexibility in flow regimes.
