Floating Shock Subs for DTH
Floating Cushion Subs (FCS) are utilized in both slanted and vertical drilling operations to reduce vibration and wear of the drill string and drill rig components.
We have several FCS models for mining, construction, water well and oilfield applications.
The Floating Cushion Sub performs two important functions:
The sliding spindle of the cushion sub permits the threads of the mating drill string components to float together or apart during rotation without any axial movement of the rotary drive. This decreases the impact on the rotary drive when the two mating threads are joined and decreases the load on the threads of the mating components.
