CEMENT RETAINER
Techwests Cement Retainer is a rugged, compact Cement Retainer
engineered for trouble free running and setting on either tubing or wireline.
The slips, packing elements and other components are positively secured to
ensure high speed running of the retainer.
All Retainers are built to stringent material specifications under exacting quality
control standards so every Retainer provides the best combination of strength
and drillability possible.
The one piece element combined with full 360o metal Back Up Rings provides
a dependable seal under high pressures and temperatures. The one piece full
circle slips set securely in any casing grade.
The Cement Retainers pressure balanced Sleeve Valve, complete with a one
piece molded seal, is simply operated from the surface by lowering the tubing
to open and raising the tubing to close. A unique Shear System prevents the
valve from being accidentally opened at any time during running or setting.
The Tubing String may be tested before you squeeze by picking up the tubing
to close the valve and applying pressure. The simple up and down operation
of the valve allows you to hold the final squeeze pressure on the cement and/
or stage the cement when squeezing low fluid level wells.
PRODUCT 20-139 WIRELINE SET
The Wireline Cement Retainer is designed for fast running and reliable setting
with a Baker E-4 pressure Setting Assembly. This retainer uses a one piece
Upper Slip and a Shear Ring. The use of a Shear Ring instead of a Shear Stud
allows the retainer bore to be filled with grease to prevent solids from settling
inside and preventing proper operation of the valve.
The Wireline Set Cement Retainer uses a Snap Latch Seal Unit to operate.
Refer to the catalogue section on the Snap Latch Seal Unit for detailed
operating instructions.
PRODUCT 20-138 TUBING SET
The Tubing Set Cement Retainer differs from the wireline set version in that
the one piece Top Slip is replaced by a pre-segmented Top Slip and the Shear
Ring is deleted.
A Ramcharger Mechanical Setting Tool is used to run and set the Tubing
Set Cement Retainer, and to operate the valve after setting. Refer to the
catalogue section on the Ramcharger for detailed operating instructions.
NOTE: The Cement Retainer may be converted to a Wireline Set B Bridge
Plug 20-146 or a Tubing Set Bridge Plug 20-147 by removing the
bottom Valve Assembly and replacing it with a 20-146-000-01 Cap.
