Operator,
Offshore Brunei

86 tons of swarf recovered in 12 days with zero NPT

“The magnets worked very well and the ease of cleaning was definitely a plus. We had zero downtime due to mud pump expendables and have had no reports of any metal shavings in MWD/LWD directional tools. I believe this can be attributed to the effectiveness and ease of cleaning of the magnet assembly”
