WINC (Wireless Inclination) is an unmanned survey tool that is both retrievable and reseatable. Approximately 12 feet in length, WINC has a inclination accuracy of ±0.10 up to 22.5°. It is supplied in a pre-loaded short drill collar in 4.75″, 6.5″, 8.0″, 9.0″, 9.5″. Extreme LCM tolerance of over 40 lbs/barrel it is a leader in the market.
It features integrated rubber fin centralizer and has an operating temperature of 0°-150°C or 32°-302°F, vibration random of 20 g RMS, 15-500 Hz, and shock 1000 g, 0.5 ms, half-sine. Rated to 20,000 psi, the Vertex WINC tool has an operating battery life expectancy of 1,000 hours per 40 days of use.
WINC+ (Wireless Inclination with Azimuth) has the ability to provide inclination, azimuth and toolface, so you can keep your hole straight and on target, avoiding costly doglegging and potential hole conditions as a result of not circulating while surveying.
The WINC+ tool is capable of surveying at any point by simply stopping the pumps and starting them. A survey is reported back to surface while you are drilling ahead, there is no need to wait for the survey to be pumped up; it’s done! WINC+ can get you back on target without having to slow down ROP and waiting for gravity to get your hole back to vertical.
