Lone Star Drills introduces new high-torque motor for big rigadmin
Lone Star Drills, a division of Little Beaver Inc. and producer of environment friendly and moveable drilling gear, introduces high-torque Rineer rotary vane hydraulic motors for its LS400T+. The highly effective water properly and geothermal drill is Lone Star’s largest rig and effectively drills as deep as 400 toes by way of arduous rock and volcanic formations. The brand new hydraulic motor reduces rotary service time from days to lower than an hour.
“The Rineer motor and Tremendous Swivel mixture is an all-around enchancment in comparison with the drill’s earlier high drive swivel and hydraulic motor. It is simpler to work on, gives better torque, and is priced proper, making it economical to maintain a backup swivel readily available for emergencies,” stated Joe Haynes, Little Beaver president. “With the earlier rotary, servicing a leak typically took the drill out of use for 2 to 3 days whereas the swivel was within the store. Now the drill might be up and operating in about half-hour with a backup swivel and operators can substitute seals on the leaking swivel at their leisure.”
Lone Star provides the LS400T+ with two totally different Rineer motors, each offering better torque than the drill’s earlier hydraulic motor. The MV037 operates at a most pace of 125 rpm and is good for mud rotary drilling. The motor generates as much as 1,030 foot-pounds of torque at 3,000 psi. The bigger MV057 operates at a most pace of 60 rpm and is good for DTH hammer drilling. It provides as a lot as 2,200 foot-pounds of torque at 3,000 psi.
The LS400T+ delivers 15,000 kilos of pullback pressure — thrice greater than Lone Star Drills’ subsequent largest mannequin — and 9,000 kilos of push-down pressure. And at a weight of seven,700 kilos, the drill requires much less anchoring than lighter trailer-mounted rigs. It additionally accommodates 10-foot drill pipe, which permits crews to rapidly attain goal depth.
The rugged water properly drill is trailer mounted and towable by small truck or UTV. The trailer options surge brakes, three hand jacks for leveling and might be fitted with both a pintle ring or ball hitch. It additionally consists of an built-in pipe rack to conveniently transport drill pipe between areas.
