  5. Stroked Out Position-The Heave Compensator aboard D/V Glomar challenger is shown in a partially stoked out position. The lower lifting block and piston rod supports the full weight of th drill string and the upper cylinder portion is linked to the traveling block. The system is designed to improve core and extend bit life by eliminating the movement and bottom pounding of the drill string due to vessel heave. This is accomplished by maintaining a constand hydraulic supporting under the piston as the compensating cylinder heaves with the vessel. Maximum working load is 600,000 pounds and maximum heave compensated 15 feet. Load variation at 400,000 pounds (plus or minus) 2,500 pounds.

  10. Initial Drill for Re-Entry - This 14 7/8 inch four roller cone tungsten carbide insert roller bit is used to drill the initial hole after the re-entry cone has been landed on the ocean bottom. It is used to run the 16-inch casing which is hung below the cone. Then comes the 11 3/4-inch casing necessary to prevent deep penetration holes from filling up with debris. A similar 10-inches in diameter is used to drill the remainder of the hole.
