ACT™ Articulating Compensator Tool

Volant’s ACT™ tool is designed for casing drilling or running with top drive equipped rigs to eliminate well center alignment problems. This tool mechanically articulates to align casing or drill pipe with well center, reducing the effects of misaligned connections at the drilling surface. In operation, the ACT is generally connected directly to the tool joint connection on the top drive quill.

  • Helps align casing or drill pipe with well center by removing stabbing uncertainty.
  • Pneumatic spring and viscous damping system provides maximum passive articulation and compensation over the entire load capacity of the tool.
