The Plug / Junk Catcher is designed to remove larger pieces of well debris from the well effluent during operations such as frac flowback, sand consolidation testing and completion clean-up after perforating or drilling out a bridge plug.
It is positioned upstream of the wellhead sand separator or choke manifold to avoid damage and plugging of the downstream process.
The Hunting Plug Catcher consists of a horizontal mounted manifold with a catcher chamber with an internal perforated pipe to collect debris and a by pass line to allow the screen to be isolated, de-pressurised and the debris to be collected and measured as required. The perforating pipe is available in several sizes depending on the type of well debris to be removed.
The drain feature allows debris such as frac balls to be removed without removing the perforated pipe.
Hunting plug catchers are available in a range of sizes, working pressures and configurations and can be customized to the clients’ requirements including dual catcher line designs to allow continuous debris removal and various sizes of perforated pipes.
