Kelly bars are a critical component for any drilling task involving a Kelly configuration. And because of the massive amount of stress, wear, and tear they go through, using a lower-quality Kelly bar or neglecting maintenance can lead to on-site breakdowns that end up causing costly delays for your project — and that’s on top of all the hassle.
As with any drill component, quality and build are the two most important aspects to ensuring superior performance and longevity. If you’re looking for better Kelly bars that can withstand more usage while also offering a higher level of performance, Custom-made Kelly bars from Blaze Equipment are the answer.
Let’s talk about the three main benefits you’ll get from each Blaze Kelly bar.
1. Quality Control
Quality of materials and the expertise in the build itself are both paramount in building a Kelly bar that can service your job sites for years to come. Unlike many foreign-made stock Kelly bars from big manufacturers, Blaze Kelly bars are custom-made right here in Texas by our experienced fabricators.
Each Kelly bar made by our team can be configured to your exact specifications and needs. By sourcing your Kelly bars from a local fabricator, you can be sure you’re getting bars made from the most durable materials and with attention to every last detail. This instantly transfers into a better quality of work at every job site.
2. Improved Performance
Blaze Kelly bars feature an optimal build design intended to get the maximum amount of performance with each use, transferring the maximum torque over the full extended length. Furthermore, our bars utilize 6 rows of locks instead of 3, which means you’re getting twice the wear surface, less stress, and double the life from each bar.
This automatically makes your drilling more efficient while also extending the bar’s lifespan — both of which lead to less overhead expenses and faster project times. The improved performance offered by our Kelly bars will also result in less wear on all of your Kelly drilling equipment.
