What is an Active Centralizer System?

Universal HDD's drilling rigs are equipped with an Active Centralizer System for proper alignment of drill pipe during a bore. The Active Centralizer is located at the front of the breakout-system. It can be adjusted vertically to help centralize drill pipe, thus ensuing proper alignment, reduces friction and improved string control. Built out of heavy-duty components, it includes rubber rod wipe to help keep your drill pipes and your rig clean.

Active Centralizer Benefits:

  • Reduces wear on drill rods
  • Reduces friction and improve steering control
  • Heavy-duty components for high reliability
  • Easy and simple to service
  • Cleans drill rods from mud
