Guides the Way

Field-proven on tens of thousands of projects, the ParaTrack Steering Tool is the foundation of Vector Magnetics’ ParaTrack System of tools for the Horizontal Directional Driller. The ParaTrack Steering Tool is multi-functional in its role. State of the art magnetic and gravity sensors in a lightweight yet rugged housing provides reliable survey information on its own. When the project requires the added precision of guidance, the Tool acts as a receiver for multiple magnetic tracking sources including AC Surface Wires, and the Beacon Tracker System. When magnetic interference renders these sources less than ideal, the ParaTrack Gyro Module keeps the project on track.

Optional add-ons are available including the At Bit Inclination Assembly providing inclination measurements directly at the bit for the first time in the HDD market and the Pressure Module allowing the monitoring of annular and pipe pressures while drilling, preventing costly frac outs.

The value of the ParaTrack Steering Tool lies in its flexibility. No other company provides a system that can be so precisely tailored to your project’s unique needs, maximizing efficiency and minimizing cost. Designed and built by the scientists and engineers at Vector Magnetics. Field proven reliable. Support you can count on.
