Rhino XS2 Reamer Enables Talisman to Circulate for More Than 25 h After Deactivation and Drills to TD

Ball drop option offers flexibility to deactivate reamer in varying hole conditions, extending circulating time and minimizing tool erosion

The reamer’s ability to activate (left) and deactivate (right) via ball drop allowed Talisman to circulate for longer time without block deployment.
