Mud Monitor
- Tracerco Mud Monitor

General Info

The TracercoTM mud monitor can be used to confirm radioactive source integrity during logging whilst drilling (LWD) and protect personnel from radiation exposure.

During drilling operations a radioactive source is often used to log reservoir properties. Incidents have occurred where the radioactive source has been damaged by the drill bit, resulting in contamination of the drilling mud and the mud tank. This can lead to potential radiation exposure for workers.

TracercoTM mud monitors can be used by a number of drilling companies to ensure safe working conditions are maintained. It is intrinsically safe and has been tested and certified for use in potentially explosive atmospheres, zones 0, 1 and 2.

The instrument is easily clamped to the outside of the mud circulation system via the powerful magnet provided. A sensitive detector links with the directional drilling control system. The instrument continuously monitors background radiation levels. If an increase in radiation is detected, the system gives a clear signal to alert personnel of downhole radioactive source leakage.

Learn the benefits of the TracercoTM mud monitor:

  • Provides an analogue output proportional to radiation intensity
  • Continuously monitors detector condition and provides an alarm in the event of failure
  • Unaffected by hostile processes
  • Easy to install
  • Highly reliable
  • Fast response
  • Radiation monitoring via a standalone alarm unit, or integrated into a DCS or SCADA system
  • Intrinsically safe (has been tested and certified for use in potentially explosive atmospheres, zones 0, 1 and 2)
