What Are Shifting Tools?

Positioning or shifting tools are used to shift or close the position of flow circulation devices in the wellbore. Most shifting tools are prepared with a specific model of sliding sleeve.

Shifting Tools Are Offered at Western Pressure Controls

It should be run upright to open sleeves and in the inverted position to closed sleeves. For this tool to function effectively, the dimension from the bottom of the collet bump to the bottom of the retractor must be precise when assembled.
