Model "K-1" Cement Retainer
Product No.: BI 400-21
Product No.: BI 400-23
This drillable Cement Retainer continues to be the best tool available for single-interval squeeze, batch, or block squeeze cementing.
The Model K-1 Cement Retainer is constructed of components subject to stringent material specifications and quality control procedures. It provides the optimum strength and drillability combination. The model K-1 Cement Retainer’s two way valve is controlled from the surface: no springs to cock or stick. Just pick up to close; set down to open. Maximum clearance for fast running plus improved drillability and pressure ratings make it the right choice.
Tubing or electric line set: Can be set by mechanical methods on tubing or drill pipe, or run and set on electric line. Faster, safer run-in. Run - in speed is up to the operator. Locked construction design and larger clearance make this possible.
Tests tubing: Tubing can be tested before squeezing by picking up to close the valve and applying pressure.
Holds final squeeze pressure: The automatic closing of the valve when picking up, or removal of stinger, ensures holding the squeeze under final pressure as cement is circulated out
Isolates squeeze from hydrostatic pressure: Keeping hydrostatic pressure off the zone just squeezed is important, especially for cementing low-fluid-level wells in batchsqueeze operations. This unique valve guarantees an effective seal.
Fast drill out: New material specifications developed especially for the K-1 Cement Retainers result in faster drill out.
