Model "SLXA" Sliding Sleeve

 Model SLXA Sliding Sleeve Diag1

The ESS-ELL Model SLXA Sliding Sleeve is a downhole device, normally screwed into the production tubing, that allows communication between the tubing and the easing.

The closing sleeve has replaceable upper and lower seals which are easy and inexpensive to replace. They can be of various elastomer types.

The upper sub has a selective "SLX’ Landing Nipple profile machined into it to serve as a receptacle for other flow control devices such as blanking plugs and separation tools.

The ESS-ELL Model EB Shifting Tool is used to shift the SLXA Sliding Sleeve open and closed. The sleeve is designed so that normal wireline activities will not open or close the sleeve inadvertently. Upward jarring opens the sleeve and downward jarring closes it.

Model "EL" Sliding Sleeve

 Model EL Sliding Sleeve (open and closed)

The ESS-ELL Model EL Sliding Sleeve is a downhole device, normally screwed into the production tubing, that allows communication between the tubing and the casing.

The closing sleeve includes bonded upper seals to ensure integrity of the seals for extended periods of time while downhole. They can also be of various elastomer types.

The upper sub has a selective "EF” landing nipple profile machined into it to allow for the proper shifting of the sleeve and to serve as a receptacle for other flow control devices, such as blanking plugs and separation tools.

The ESS-ELL Model ED-2 Shifting Tool is used to shift the EL Sliding Sleeve open and closed. The sleeve is designed so that normal wireline activities will not open or close the sleeve inadvertently. Upward jarring opens the sleeve and downward jarring closes the sleeve.

ASSEMBLY:

  1. The Inner Sleeve is always assembled from the lower end of the Housing.
  2. Replace the 0-rings on both the Upper and Lower Sub.
  3. Replace the two Seats on the upper end of the inner Sleeve.
  4. Apply Jet Lube AP-1 Grease (or equivalent) to the l.O. of the Housing, the entire surface of the Inner Sleeve, and the I.D. of the Upper and Lower Sub Ends.
  5. Apply Lubon 404 Thread Sealant/lubricant to the stub acme» threads on the Upper and Lower Sub Ends.
  6. Install the Upper Sub onto the Housing.
  7. Insert the inner Sleeve into the Housing. Make sure it is shifted until it hits the stopping point of the Upper Sub.
  8. Install the Lower Sub onto the Housing.
  9. Shift the Inner Sleeve down the fully closed position.
  10. Pressure test to 6,000 psi maximum.

Model "SLX" Landing Nipple

 Model SLX Landing Nipple

The ESS-ELL Model "SLX" Landing Nipple is a Full Bore Landing Nipple that allows for the location of many Flow Control Devices, such as Blanking Plugs, Bottom Hole Chokes, etc.

The "SLX" has a locking groove which serves to allow for the internal locking of the flow control devices. The honed seal area provides a polished seal surface to pack off any flow control device. The unique locking groove profile allows for full selectivity in running flow control devices into the "SLX". Many "SLX" Landing NippIes can be run in the production tubing without any loss in operational flexibility.

There is a wide range of materials from which the "SLX" can be machined. The standard material is alloy steel which meets NACE MR 01-75 (1988 Editorial Revision) specifications for H2S service (hardness is 18-22 Rc).
