VECTOR-MAX™ hydraulic-set liner hanger assembly for cemented liners
The Vector-MAX is a premium 4.5-in. x 7.0-in.high-load liner hanger/packer for horizontal, vertical, or deviated wells. Hanger design protects slips from damage, and running tool design prevents unplanned release. The robust torque-clutch ring enables rotation during installation.
Fully compatible with the Multistage Unlimited® frac-isolation system
Robust torque-ring clutch enables liner rotation, push, and pull to get the liner to bottom.
Only the running tool is pressurized when setting the hanger; prevents surge forces on the liner and formation and saves time and displacement fluid.
Unique design prevents premature release of running tool
Hanger cone design keeps slips fully recessed and protected from damage during deployment
Six hydraulically actuated hanger slips with three pads each to distribute load evently
Primary tool release is hydraulic plus right-hand rotation. Contingency release is mechanical plus right hand rotation.
