What are the uses for a hurricane mill?
Hurricane mills are recommended when:
- Direct circulating and/or
- Smaller cuttings are desired
Hurricane mills are available in two different types for the following applications:
The primary difference between the two are:
- Cutter placement
- Cutter shape
Hurricane mills designed to drill out cement have chisel shaped carbide inserts, while hurricane mills designed to mill out metal and plugs have dome-shaped carbide inserts.

When would I use the pdc mill?
The pdc mill was specially designed to mill out hard build up on casing such as barium scale that can accumulate on casing and, over time, reduce the well flow.
It is also used to drill out very hard cement.
What is the aardvark used for?
The aardvark mill was originally designed to drill out old Halliburton frac plugs that have a metal retainer ring and there are many of these plugs still in the hole. The metal retainer ring presented a special drilling problem that produced too much outside wear on conventional drill bits. So, the basic design of the chomp was used and modified to drill out the center of the plug first and the outside last thereby reducing wear and stress on the center of the bit.
The aardvark mill can also be used for drilling cemented pipe or casing.
Why would I need a concave mill rather than a convex?
The standard design is convex but concave is available if needed.
Concave design is available for special drilling needs if there is any time the outside needs to be drilled first.
The concave design forces cuttings to the center for recutting into smaller pieces. The concave design will also help the mill to stay centered and mill straighter with less damage to casing.
Your bear claw and chomp mills can be manufactured in either a concave or convex shape. Do your hurricanes also come that way?
Yes, but we do not keep them in stock and are special order only.
