The Melon-Type Equalizing Housing is a commonly used method of achieving pressure equalization across a set plug. It incorporates a simple equalizing melon that is run "on seat" in the sealed position and allows the SIM Plug and SIMplus to be conveyed in a single run.
Recovery of the Melon-Type Equalizing Housing requires two-runs-to-pull. The Melon-Type Equalizing Prong is run prior to the MATS/GS Pulling Prong to equalize pressure across the plug and allow safe recovery. Jarring down on the Equalizing Prong will move the Melon "off seat" allowing pressure across the plug to equalize.
