• Choke Manifold: 1500S Local Control Panel

    The MPowerD™ choke manifold setpoint controller provides primary finite control for balanced/underbalanced fluid return rates and wellhead pressure during managed pressure drilling (MPD) operations. Our setpoint system has been designed for use in common MPD applications and is most suitable for land drilling operations.



    Our easy-to-install system offers simple operation and maintenance within a small footprint, which provides a cost-effective option for your MPD applications and lower overall ownership costs.


    PLC Controller 

    • Monitors several inputs simultaneously and continuously without fatigue 
    • Automatically adjusts the choke as needed to maintain optimal annular pressure
    • Improves the system’s ability to accurately maintain a target pressure down to 3 SPM

    8-in. HMI 

    • Monitors key drilling parameters in any condition
    • Allows inputs in any weather condition
    • Provides intuitive interaction with the system
    • Offers legibility in full sunlight and screen sensitivity for use while wearing gloves

    Fully autonomous operation 

    • Does not require constant interaction 
    • Continuously calculates and updates pressure requirement based on pump and pressure inputs
    • User sets drilling and pressure parameters and only changes them when the drilling program changes
    • User can monitor system health and functionality through local audible and remote visual alarms

    Automatic or manual control modes

    • Auto-mode–pressure management while drilling
    • Manual mode–control the choke by hand and allows system bypass for servicing

    Integrated data logger 

    • Allows user to capture data for analytics
    • On-board data storage with easy-to-access data port
    • Storage capacity for long-term drilling campaigns
    Ruggedized housing design 
    • 316 stainless steel enclosure
    • Reliable hydraulic circuits with redundant pumps
    • Unique circuit design with integrated hydraulic manifold eliminates most leak points
    • 115 VAC or 240 VAC capable
