REFLEX GYRO SPRINT-IQ™
The REFLEX GYRO SPRINT-IQ™ is an advanced downhole navigation device, which is used to survey boreholes. Downhole survey data collected can be seamlessly transferred to IMDEXHUB-IQ™ to be accessed anywhere and at any time, making real-time decisions a reality.
The device has proven to have operating speeds up to 150 metres per minute and is three times faster and two times more accurate than traditional gyros. This advanced speed and accuracy significantly increases productivity for clients.
The driller operable REFLEX GYRO SPRINT-IQ™ is designed to be easy-to-use with minimal training. This eliminates the need for third-party service providers on site. The device is also designed for all magnetic and non-magnetic ground conditions and can be used in north seeking, multi-shot or continuous modes.
The REFLEX GYRO SPRINT-IQ™ represents another step-change in our long history of innovation for the minerals industry. We introduced the first digital survey tool in the late 1990s to replace analogue tools, then developed digital magnetic-based tools including the REFLEX EZ-TRAC™.
Protecting Our Future
As a leading global Mining-Tech company, we take all appropriate measures to protect our intellectual property (IP).
