Shock Sub

A Shock Sub is a drilling tool used to supress destructive vibrations in more expensive pieces of drilling equipment. Western Drilling Tools supplies several styles and sizes of shock subs and cushion subs.

A Shock Sub works by using a free moving mass that moves in the opposite direction of the shock load. The shock sub free moving mass is then dampened by a series of rubber cushions. A Shock Sub is commonly used in series with a Down Hole Hammer during precision drilling. WDT shock subs come in sizes ranging from 4” to 12” with any NC or API thread.
