A standard size Tubing Anchor Catcher, being closer to the ID of the casing, restricts both the flow of gas and the flow of fluid trying to get by the TAC. In effect it works as a choke. The smaller diameter of the Tech TAC Slimline™
TAC increases flow-by capacity which provides greater area for improved flow from the well, essentially allowing the well to "breathe" easier and operate more efficiently. The reduced diameter also allows the anchor to be set in or below the perforations, anchoring the entire tubing string. With the tapered flow deflectors on the top and bottom of the tool, solids are directed out and around the anchor instead of accumulating on top of it. Not only does the Slimline™ design significantly reduce the chances of the TAC getting stuck in a well, it also allows the anchor to be cutover in dramatically less time compared to a standard TAC. Due to the smaller diameter, only the slip proctectors and slips need to be cut over. The rest of the tool fits inside a mill shoe or cutover tool.
Our technology can greatly extend the life of the tubing, decrease your maintenance costs, and improve your bottom line!
