A: For more than 30 years Laversab’s Oilfield Systems division has been focused on building the best computers, displays and smart-terminals for hazardous rig-floor locations. We have computers certified for operation in Class 1 Divisions 1 and 2 and Zones 1 and 2 locations. A few years ago we introduced an MWD Surface System, our Model 4100, which has become incredibly popular due to its highly accurate mud-pulse decoding capability. The performance and reliability of our products have allowed us to garner the loyalty of many happy customers including several major oilfield service companies.
Q: Are you introducing any new products at the show?
A: Our popular Model 2800 Series Rig-Floor Computer is now offered in various sizes with displays ranging from 10 inches to 19 inches and with multiple CPU options including an i7 CPU. A special version has been designed specifically for DC-operation on trucks and work-over rigs. Our Model 3200 Driller’s Display Unit is now available with Chinese and Russian certifications for Zone-1. We are also introducing the brand new Model 2500 Class 1 Div 2 Rigfloor Tablet. We believe that all these new and existing products will be almost irresistible to potential users, especially when coupled with what we call ‘The Laversab Advantage.’
Q: What exactly do you mean by “The Laversab Advantage?”
A: Actually, there are three advantages. First, we continually test our products in our own environmental and HALT/HASS chambers to find ways of improving reliability. Long-term reliability of the product is most critical to our customers and our rigorous in-house environmental testing helps us get closer to achieving this.
Second, we are willing to customize our products to meet the customers’ specific requirements. What makes it quite unique is that we often do it at no extra charge!
Third — the most important advantage — we provide outstanding service and support to our customers unlike anything they have experienced before. Short delivery times, quick turn-around of repairs, availability of loaner units, cost-effective upgrades to older models; these are just a few examples. With Laversab offices located in the Houston area, Calgary, Germany and Taiwan, we are relatively close to our customers’ field locations and always ready to fulfill their needs.
To have the peace of mind that Laversab will provide a reliable, customized product and back it up with superb service, that’s ‘The Laversab Advantage.’
