Revolutionising the way in which the rotating parts of rotary drilling rigs are guarded, SAFER G uses state of the art sensor technologies to detect persons encroaching within pre-defined safe-guarded zone/s. Once a detection is made, the system generates a signal to switch off rotation to prevent any potential entanglement.
A considerable amount of time in the research and development phase of SAFER G was spent getting the balance right between being able to sense physical persons, whilst maintaining the ability to discount things like muds, liquids and dust particles kicked up in the act of drilling.
SAFER G is a revolutionary way to guard the rotating-drill string, ensure driller safety and improve on-site productivity. It's quicker, smarter and it speeds up adding barrels, casing or rods to your drill-string by removing the need to open and close a physical guard. This leaves you far more time to do the things that really earn your company money - drilling boreholes and taking samples!
