Xplorer Tag From InfoChip and Xerafy Approved for Drill Pipes
InfoChip and Xerafy have announced that an independent study of the Xplorer tag—a rugged ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID tag designed to be embedded in drill pipe and survive extreme downhole conditions—shows no detrimental impact to asset integrity when embedded in a drill pipe.
InfoChip, which is the exclusive distributor of the Xplorer tag, announced that a finite element analysis (FEA) of the tag concludes that there is no detrimental impact to asset integrity when the tag is embedded in the tool joint of a drill pipe. T.H. Hill, the company that conducted the study, determined that "the pins of the connections had a lesser fatigue life than the RFID tag holes," according to InfoChip.
