25-255 RC10 Cement Retainer

Product Overview


The RC10 is a high performance cast iron cement retainer designed for cement squeeze applications at differential pressures of up to 10,000 psi (69 mpa). The RC10 is designed for wire line setting using an E4 or equivalent setting tool and the appropriate adapter. Alternatively the retainer may be set on tubing using a hydraulic setting tool and the appropriate adapter or with a mechanical setting tool (requires mechanical top slip).

A pressure balanced sleeve system inside the retainer utilizes a static seal which ensures reliability even after multiple open/close cycles at high pressure. A simple conversion allows the RC10 to be converted from a cement retainer into  a bridge plug .

The RC10 is manufactured from cast components which are easily milled/drilled should removal of the plug become necessary. As standard the RC10 is supplied with Nitrile packing elements for temperatures of up to 300 F.  Alternate elastomers are available upon request to accommodate higher temperatures. Case hardened slips ensure the plug sets securely in all tubing grades. Accessories include mechanical setting tools and various stinger options.
