Hardware Simulator

DSC’s Hardware Simulator is a physical laboratory machine that provides a full-scale, real-time horizontal drilling capability. The test sample can accomodate the lower part of a drilling BHA, about 23 meters long and 6 ¾” in diameter with an 8 ¾” drill bit. Building on two oil field triplex pumps, a powerful hydraulic feed device and a rock chamber, realistic well conditions can be achieved.
