Enhanced Hydrodynamic Design
Simple yet innovative solution that enhances drilling performance, prevents downhole failures and makes tripping easier.
Minimized distance between bit and stabilizer blades
Dome-Shaped Low Friction Blades
Reduce torque, drag & BHA vibration dampening
The Stabilizer Reinvented
The Fixedblade® Bitbox Stabilizer directional drilling tool was designed to address the known shortcomings of drill bit stabilisation. Utilising the Fixedblade hydrodynamic design, created using industry standard computational fluid dynamic modelling. It enables enhanced fluid displacement and near bit stabilization without compromising steerability or torque levels
The Fixedblade® Bitbox was designed to replace the need for static motor sleeve stabilization which improves weight transfer and tool face control when slide drilling. Also suitable for BHA’s with point-the-bit RSS, allowing using short-gauge bits without compromising directional performance and hole quality.
The Bitbox stabilizer is placed directly above the bit and has three points of contact with the wellbore. It is equally suited for use on either mud motor or RSS applications. It improves bit stability, minimizing whirl and spiralling. On steerable motors the rotating bit box stab replaces the static bearing-housing motor sleeve, reducing friction and improving weight transfer when slide drilling that minimizes the risk of hanging up, motor stalling and subsequent loss of tool face.
When running with point-the-bit RSS, it allows using regular drill bits with short gauge without compromising hole quality. Similar to other stabilizers from EDP, it has low friction dome-shaped blades. It also has superior hydrodynamic properties providing resistance to balling up and packing off.
