Split Lay-Down Sub (SLDS)
ALS Split Lay-Down Sub [SLDS] assemblies allow for quick and efficient handling of long coring runs. Their design eliminates inner barrel rotation during lay-down operations which leads to improved core quality over traditional lay-down subs. The associated handling equipment also ensures safe lay-down operations and decreases rig down time.
Features and Benefits
- Allows the core to be split without rotation of the Inner Barrel
- Fully stabilizes the Inner Barrel Assembly which reduces torque and improves core quality
- Saves rigtime while recovering the core on surface
- Compatible with the Thin Sleeve System (TSS)
