Stabilizer Blocks

Rhino system stabilizer

Cutter blocks.

The Rhino system stabilizer uses three abrasion-resistant stabilizer blocks. When run above the reamer, the stabilizer provides concentric, stable points of contact in the enlarged hole section, increasing lateral support. Tungsten carbide hardfacing and diamond-enhanced inserts are available to provide additional wear resistance.

The stabilizer can be used with the Rhino XS reamer to reduce drillstring vibration in borehole enlargement operations.

The stabilizer reduces drillstring vibration, which is increasingly important as well profiles and individual components in modern drillstrings become more complex. Vibration affects the life of downhole tools and surface equipment, slows drilling, and results in irregular boreholes.
