The tool is designed for top-hole drilling as well as directional work in hole sizes down to 12 ¼” due to its high bending capacity. The 9 ½” tool is internally characterized by its massive helix section that provides for safe transformation of impact loads when mitigating vibrations and stick-slip from large diameter reamers and hole-opener wings from floating rigs and drillships.
The 9 ½” tool can be configured for very high continuous torsion and compression load. The inner diameter is 2,83” and presents no restrictions to drop-balls. The pressure loss through the tool is minimal (less than 30 psi at 1200 GPM or 2 bar at 4500lpm).
