Multicycle hydraulic underreamer

Rhino integrated borehole enlargement system

Rhino multicycle hydraulic underreamer.

Complete control, unlimited activation cycles

The Rhino™ multicycle hydraulic underreamer is part of the rugged, precision-engineered Rhino integrated borehole enlargement system—a family of hydraulically actuated reamers that save rig time and bring production online faster by underreaming and drilling in a single run.

The Rhino multicycle hydraulic underreamer features an indexing system with a protective oil-filled chamber and functional design redundancy. The underreamer provides complete control of activation, eliminating pumpdown device activation. This eliminates placement of the Rhino multicycle hydraulic reamer below ID-restricted BHA components, such as MWD and LWD tools. Additionally, the reamer’s flow actuation changes the reaming mode in minutes, reducing reamer activation time and enabling an unlimited number of activation cycles during a run.
