The wellGuard hydraulic hold-open tool offers a hydraulic operated option for use on wells with pneumatic actuators operating the master valve.
Traditionally during well intervention on these wells, a fusible cap has to be installed on the pneumatic actuator rod to prevent undesirable closure should the ESD system be operated whilst wire/cable is across the master valve.
However in an emergency situation the master valve cannot be closed unless the fusible cap is removed or, in the worst cases, the heat of a fire melts the low melting point alloy.
WellGuard offers a hydraulic operated option to replace the fusible cap and ensure safety of the wellsite.
