Vectraset™ Hydraulic Liner Hanger Assembly

No Hidden Weaknesses

The Vectraset hanger 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.


Key features

  • 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 to prevent surge forces on the liner and formation and save time and displacement fluid.
  • Unique design prevents premature release of running tool.
  • Eighteen hydraulically-actuated hanger slips distribute load evenly.
  • Hanger cone design keeps slips fully recessed and protected from damage during deployment
  • Primary tool release is hydraulic plus right-hand rotation. Contingency release is mechanical plus right-hand rotation.
  • One-piece, high-strength mandrel; no hidden connections.
  • Mechanically-set, expanding-metal, liner-top packer seal with bonded elastomeric cover that will not swab off
  • Packer seal, hanger cylinder, and tieback seal stem rated to 15,000 psi (103.4 mPa) at 350° F (177° C).
  • Standard 4.5-in. (101.6 mm) XT-39 connections on running tool
  • Large bypass flow area around slips
  • 20-ft (6.1 m) tieback extension is standard. Other lengths are available on request.
