Compass Stepper Pulser

 

The Compass Positive Stepper Pulser generates a sequence of pressure increment pulses in the circulating system, enabling the transmission of MWD data recorded downhole to surface.

 

The tool is fully retrievable and replaceable, which saves rig time by eliminating pipe trips for directional equipment.

 

The Compass Pulser Module consists of 3 main sections: pulser driver, oil fill, and helix end. The pulser allows mud flow to be restricted, creating a pressure differential by way of a main orifice poppet/orifice assembly. The movement of the main poppet in and out of the orifice creates an increase in pressure. The two factors that greatly affect poppet movement are the operation of the electrical section of the module and the fluid pressure on the compensation membrane.

 

The Compass pulser is designed to “drop-in” place of the solenoid pulser and therefore operates similar to the design. The Compass pulser uses a stepper motor as the driver to actuate the servo poppet in the creation of the mud pulse.  A stepper motor is designed to rotate in “steps” as energy is pulsed to it during operation.  A small capacitor stores energy to be sent to the motor in measured sequences and amounts.  These energy transmissions allow the motor to rotate precisely.  The energy transmissions are controlled by a small processor to ensure the exact timing and amount of rotation.  This control allows the mechanism to rotate the shaft connected to the servo poppet an exact amount to allow the servo poppet to open at a precise measure and allow flow through the servo orifice.  The stepper motor is then reversed with the same precise actuation to close and complete the pulse sequence.

Pulsers

 

Solenoid Pulser

The Solenoid Pulser generates a sequence of pressure increment pulses in the circulating system, enabling the transmission of MWD data recorded downhole to surface.

 

The tool is fully retrievable and replaceable, saving rig time by eliminating pipe trips for directional equipment.

 

The solenoid pulser design consists of an oil-filled pulser section and an electronic driver section.  The driver section contains a large multi-capacitor bank that stores energy from the battery packs and is controlled by the timing/switching circuitry to generate time pulses.  This section is connected to the oil-filled section containing a double solenoid attached via spring loaded shafts to the servo poppet. A pulse is generated when a pulse signal sent by the directional module to the pulser driver.

 

The method associated with the reproducible pulses occurs when a pulser is manipulated in an upward and downward direction.

 

The valve is urged toward a closed position by drilling fluid pumped through the drill string. A larger force is required to open the valve than to hold it open. Current supplied to the solenoid to open the valve is thereafter reduced to a value sufficient to hold the valve open. The solenoid is de-energized to close the valve, completing the generation of the mud pulse.
