Top Drive Soft Torque Technology
Electronic stepless torque adjustment system is designed to improve the efficiency of directional drilling, drilling of wells with a complex structure, to perform other specific tasks due to the smooth control of the top drive rotation by a predetermined number of turns or degrees.
The system allows to:
- eliminate torsional vibrations of the drilling tool and stick slip issues;
- to increase torque and reduce its sudden changes during drilling;
- to cause vibration by changing multiple forward and reverse rotation for reciprocating a drilling tool.
- improves the performance of the Top Drive, optimizing torque;
- increases the speed of penetration;
- slow down the wear of drilling equipment;
- reduces the tripping;
- improves the drilling quality and reduces the costs.
At the request of customers, the system comes with a new Top Drive, or can be implemented in existing equipment.
