Tubing Mounted Junk Basket
Need to protect your reservoir or pump from fallen junk or debris?
Flowell’s tubing mounted junk basket is an integral part of the completion tubing string that is used as a means of catching dropped debris between the casing and tubing annulus such as broken cable bands, bolts and other items that maybe accidentally dropped into a well.
During installation the Lower Sub bottom connection is made up to the tubing string. The basket is passed through the next tubing joint that is to be made up. Using a tugger line or sand line, the basket is lifted up the tubing joint using the holes provided on the basket top guide. The tubing joint is then made up to the Lower Sub. The basket is then lowered down the tubing joint and landed on the lower sub. The flange on the basket is made up to the lower sub, and the cables and service lines secured using the cable clips. The assembly is then lowered into the well and the remainder of the tubing is made up as normal.
