Abstract: A turbine matrix sleeve in accordance with the invention includes an inner cylindrical structure made up of a first material. The inner cylindrical structure may include multiple blades and multiple channels running between the blades along an outside diameter thereof. The inner cylindrical structure further includes threads, such as right-hand or left-hand threads, on an outer surface thereof. An outer layer, made up of a second material different from the first material, is integrally bonded to the threads. This outer layer may be optionally embedded with hardened inserts or buttons, such as PDC inserts, diamond inserts, TSP inserts, or the like. The threaded surface on the inner cylindrical structure significantly improves the bond between the outer layer and the inner cylindrical structure and creates a mechanical lock therebetween. A turbine matrix sleeve in accordance with the invention includes an inner cylindrical structure made up of a first material. The inner cylindrical structure may include multiple blades and multiple channels running between the blades along an outside diameter thereof. The inner ...more ...less

Abstract: A method of thermally treating a preform element, of the kind having a facing table of polycrystalline diamond bonded to a substrate of cemented tungsten carbide, comprises the steps of: (a) heating the element to a soaking temperature of 550-625° C., and preferably about 600° C., (b) maintaining the element at that temperature for at least one hour, and (c) cooling the element to ambient temperature. The resulting preform element has a substrate with a cobalt binder including a substrate interface zone with at least 30 percent by volume of the cobalt binder a hexagonal close packed crystal structure. This reduces the risk of cracking or delamination of the element in use.
