Shingleback for demanding

• Hostile environments
• Any angle
• Any doglegs
• Anywhere in the string

Reduce downhole torque and vibrations

More Info

The Shingleback stabilizer has been designed to reduce downhole torque and vibrations to ensure the quality of the hole being drilled. The Shingleback stabilizer’s patented design uses premium grade carbides for better wear protection and superior performance.  The large corner radius in blades are thinner, decreasing side wall drag and torque and increasing flow by area – lowering the chances of sticking in the hole. 

Eliminating the bit balling problem

More Info

It was initially built for the domestic Australian market and the unique conditions it presents, where the concept was conceived following a customer’s frustration with bit balling. The design proved to be extremely successful, not only eliminating the bit balling problem, but reducing down hole torque and vibration. Due to its success and versatility, it is now being offered to drilling operations worldwide as a viable alternative to sleeve type stabilizers.

A disposable IB stabilizer

More Info

The ShingleBack is sold outright as a disposable IB stabilizer that can be used on multiple wells. We specifically moved away from the stabilizer rental market to avoid the traditional gray areas associated with redress, and specifically to avoid the continuous re-welding of hard facing that eventually damages premium steel – resulting in DBR charges or worse.
