The fluid circulation across the bit face must be designed to remove the cuttings efficiently and also to cool the bit face. These requirements may be satisfied by increasing the fluid flowrate and/or the design of the water courses that run across the face of the bit. This increased fluid flow may however cause excessive erosion of the face and premature bit failure. More than three jets are generally used on a PDC bit.
