VACS K2 System
Reduce NPT and HSE risk while increasing efficiency
The Sharp Razor vectored annular cleaning system (VACS) K2 captures debris located at the well bottom, or that was generated during well operations. Built on field-proven VACS technology that has gained a solid reputation over more than a decade, this new modular desi
gn offers enhanced performance and ease of handling, saving time and lowering risk, particularly in deepwater applications.
As fluid flows through the jet nozzles, the VACS K2 jet engine design produces increased suction pressure at the base of the tool, pulling in any fine or big debris or junk from the well into the tool basket. The VACS K2 engine has been optimized to provide increased reliability and performance during a variety of operations, including post perforating and sump packer cleaning, packer plug or bridge plug retrieval, and junk retrieval for openhole or cased hole.
Other improvements in the K2 version of the VACS system include significant changes to the rig handling procedures. Each module can be manipulated by standard rig elevators, removing the need for on-site assembly or any specialized equipment. These simplified handling processes eliminate many potential operational and health, safety, and environmental (HSE) risks, and the modular design also reduces nonproductive time (NPT) by eliminating special rigging requirements. Modules can easily be added for increased debris recovery.
The new VACS K2 system is ideal for deepwater applications where minimizing NPT and improving operational reliability is essential to profitability. This system has been field-tested and validated, with results clearly indicating the tool’s increased performance and efficiency. Incorporating Sharp Razor VACS technology, including the modular VACS K2 system, into your operations ensures that you receive the most reliable and cost-efficient solution for
