INROCK® is proud to introduce the latest in High Tech Guidance Tracking. The ABIA is a sophisticated tool that is embedded directly into INROCK’s XTM 8″ and 6 ¾” Mud Motors. The absolute inclination is measured at the bit and transmitted via EM transmission to the ParaTrack 2 probe located in the drill collar behind the motor. The inclination is then monitored by the RivCross software. Comparing ABIA inclination with the inclination of the ParaTrack 2 probe, the Guidance Engineer can monitor any deviation or deflection issues. The fractured formation can cause deflections in drilling, with the ABIA the deflection is seen and corrected before trouble strikes.
The ABIA is integrated into the bit box of INROCK’s XTM Mud Motor putting the sensor directly behind the bit. Embedding ABIA into the motor bit box maintaining optimum bit to bend ratios.
