The effects of increased hydraulic horsepower at the bit are similar to their effect on roller cone bits. However manufacturers will often recommend a minimum flowrate in an attempt to ensure that the bit face is kept clean and cutter temperature is kept to a minimum. This requirement for flowrate may adversely affect optimisation of HHP.
