> Powered Swivel Joint

Responding to real-time surface commands, the Powered Swivel Joint (PSJ) rotates guns or tools to a precise relative bearing. A simple user interface allows users to set an offset should the gun string not be aligned with the PSJ, and to confirm when the gun is properly aligned.

A high resolution encoder together with a low-side detector is used to monitor the relative bearing of the tool. Everything is fully shock-mounted and tested to withstand perforating shock.

The tool can also be supplied in a minimal format allowing clients to install their own control system, or as a complete tool which is fully compatible with the full range of Guardian Ballistics Delivery System tools.

Product Features
  • Orientate to any position within the wellbore relative to the low side of the hole
  • Ability to input offset for gun orientation separate from tool orientation
  • High Torque motor allows for rotation of long heavy guns or tool strings
  • Combinable with Guardian Instrument Dynamics Controller or non-rotating centraliser
Product Applications
  • Align gun to plane of least principle stress for enhanced frac performance
  • Orientate gun away from control lines or fibre optic cable
  • Orientate gun to optimal position for limited entry perforating
