QUP Retrievable Bridge Plug

The Retrievable Bridge Plug/Packer was designed for well control when nipples are damaged or non-existent. The Retrievable Bridge Plug/Packer features the same patented ratchet and release mechnaism of the QRTP which, has been used to successfully set and retrieve hundred of plugs.

As the inner mandrel is being drawn up, the steel screws in the slips ramp moves in the slots in the gripper cage until they bottom out. This in turn pulls the ramp away from the elastomer anchorage to the tubing wall. The Retrievable Bridge Plug/Packer can hold pressures of up tp 7500 psi from both directions and still be retreiveable through restrictions.

A standard GS Tool is required to release this tool. The Retrievable Bridge Plug/Packer has been designed with small diameters, so it can be set anywhere in the production tubing with slickline, e-line and/or coil tubing. Due to extreme downhole temperatures, the elastomers may bond to the production tubing. However, the Retrievable Bridge Plug/Packer can still be jarred through the elastomer without being caught in the slips.
