The Retainer Mechanical Setting Tool is designed to run and set the Polar Cement Retainers on tubing. In addition to the setting function the Retainer Mechanical Setting Tool will operate the retainer sleeve valve once the retainer is set.
Run the Retainer Mechanical Setting Tool/Retainer combination assembly at a moderate rate of speed while preventing right-hand rotation transmitting to the setting tool. It is recommended tubing be rotated left every 10 stands until positive resistance is felt.
When the desired setting depth has been reached, pull the assembly two feet above the desired setting point. Rotate the tubing to the right sufficiently to transmit 10 turns to the setting assembly.
Lower the setting assembly downward to the desired setting point. Pull recommended tension above string weight, setting the slips and create a pack off, as recommended in the setting chart.
Slack off equivalent amount of weight onto assembly and again apply recommended tension. The retainer is now set and pressure testing may be performed. The setting tool may be released from the cement retainer by pulling 500 lbs. tension over string weight and rotate tubing 10 turns right. The setting tool may be relatched to the cement retainer by slacking off 1,000 lbs. string weight and snapped out by applying 5,000 lbs. tension. The snap out forces will decrease after repeated usage and will stabilize at 2,508 lbs.
The tension sleeve valve is opened with downward motion (compression) and closed with upward motion (tension). Two inches of travel from closed to open position.
- Simple operation
- Dependable seals
