Tool strings are vital in the safety, maintenance, and success of wireline worksites. These tools are used to set, service, and pull downhole equipment. Western Pressure Controls offers a wide variety of tool string equipment incredibly useful to the industry.
Here is a comprehensive list of what we offer:
Centralizer: This tool is used to hold the tool string in the middle of the hole. Specifications are available upon request.
Chisel: This tool is used to break up cement, scale, hydrates, rubber, and other debris that may be in the way of the wellbore.
Broaches: Used to remove burrs and bumps in the tubing caused by perforations, rust, bent or crimped tubing, this tool is offered in pineapple and profile styles.
Knuckle Jars: This tool provides flexibility and light jarring in the wireline.
Knuckle Joint: No, this is not part of the human anatomy. Knuckle joints help provide angular movement between segments of the tool string.
Line Cutters—Cam Cutter: This tool is assembled around the line at the well surface and rides down the well on the line. It cuts the line once it reaches the stopped tooling.
Quick Connect: Without the use of threads, quick connects are fast and efficient to connect tools together.
Rope Socket: Available in wedge and sleeve, button and spool, slip and clamp styles, rope sockets are used to securely tie the wireline to the tool string.
Roller Stem: Use this tool in place of high density weight bars to improve horizontal movement.
Stem/Sinker Bar: This tool has two purposes: to deliver weight impact during tool operation, and to overcome well pressure in running tools down the wellbore.
Swab Bore: Available in slot style or ball check style, this tool is used to retrieve fluid from the wellbore.
The swedging tool is used to expand collapses or bends in tubing back to optimal operating size.
Swivel Joint: This tool allows the tool string to rotate without rotating the line or threaded connections.
Tube Jar: The tube jar has the same use as a spang jar, but is used when the spang jar is impractical. Shock absorbers are used to avoid a jarring motion when the tool string is pulled or lands abruptly on a surface.
Tubing Brush: This tool scrapes at the tubing wall or profile to remove unwanted dust and debris.
Tubing End Locator: As its name entails, this tool is used to locate the bottom of the tubing, and to take samples from the well.
Wax Knife Without Wires: Similar to the tubing brush, this tool is used to scrape at the tubing wall and remove unwanted debris and build up. It is available in three sizes: 0.750″, 1.000″, and 2.375″.
