MONTREALFordia officially launched its new driller-friendly VisionR survey tools during Quebec Exploration 2008. The company says its VisionR system offers simplicity and accuracy at a competitive price.

 

The new tools enable drillers themselves to keep track of their drill holes and to visualize their exact path. Three probes—SingleShot, MultiShot and AtWil—are available all of which offer field-tested, precise results at all times, according to Fordia.

 

Furthermore, VisionR is equipped with Fordia’s new SecuR-Connect© technology, a design that allows a secure and speedy connection between the topsub and aluminum spacer bars, saving the survey tool from being dropped down the hole. As this system is also on all adaptors, the only threaded parts on the system are the connections between top/bottom sub to the pressure barrel, ensuring great safety and minimum loss of time.

 

The VisionR system is explained in detail at www.Fordia.com in the Survey Systems link under the Products heading.
