This totally replaces the need to drop balls, darts, electronic tags or anything down the drillpipe or tubing to activate a downhole tool such as a circulating sub, reamer, packer or anything that previously required a ball or some such device to activate.
The AVS is a DEAP activated Multi-position, Multi-cycle circulating valve. It can be run anywhere in the drillstring or BHA, even below an MWD as there are no balls or darts to drop to activate. It has 3 positions; Thru-bore, Splitflow for Hole Cleaning While Drilling and Full Bypass for LCM dump or rapid wellbore clean up.
IDT have taken a revolutionary step forward with the development of DEAP, the Downhole Electronic Activation platform that totally eliminates the need to drop balls, darts, RFID tags or anything down the drillpipe to activate a drilling or completion tool.
DEAP is fully integrated into the AVS multi-position, multi-cycle electronic circulating valve. This gives the AVS the ability to operate in the most complex wells regardless of depth or inclination. Activation takes minutes not hours!
