Slide Drilling Automation

The Smart Slide system is an auto reciprocation and tool face alignment tool for top drives. It has become one of the most important activities in directional drilling operations. Many operators are needing to drill further horizontal sections to increase productivity in their wells. The Smart Slide system provides a precise and  automatic way of doing this operation by reciprocating and steering the drill pipe to reduce down hole friction. This allows the operators to reach the desired depths to maximize the return on their investment.

Bump Function

Bump is used while the Smart Slide is in operation to change the neutral point.

Zero Function

Each time the operator wants to stop sliding the top drive will always be commanded to go back to its neutral or zero position before coming to a complete stop.

Zero Point Function

The ZERO POINT Slide or ZP slide is used to slide without oscillation. In this function, the ZP Slide button is enabled and the quill position will be locked in place. Just select a bump forward or reverse to adjust the angle. It’s possible to move the quill to any position by using the bump buttons.

The Smart Slide allows the operator to set specific modes for slide control and allows the software to control the operation. This provides consistent performance and eliminates human error.
