The new VR90s advanced diagnostic tool is built on the same Visuray Downhole X-Ray Platform as the larger VR90 tool. It features a number of significant technology developments, allowing the VR90s service to meet a greater number of customer needs.
The new tool, which has a higher temperature rating at 125 deg C, offers enhanced measurement capability with a fully integrated positioning device. This permits millimetric scanning of zones of interest of up to 50 cm with a zoom function, allowing closer inspection of in-well debris, damage, or details to thoroughly evaluate well component integrity. A wider field of view also allows for more complete imaging of target objects. Lastly, its slimmer outer diameter of 3 3/8 in allows passage through apertures as small as 3 1/2 in internal diameter.

With field-testing commencing in the second half of 2017, the VR90s tool is expected to bring new value to well diagnostic imaging, while positioning the Visuray family for further enhancements that will enable Visuray Downhole X-Ray Platform technology to penetrate even more hostile well environments.
