Nonexplosive Cutter

Peak Well Systems launched the eCutter, its electronically activated, power-charged, nonexplosive cutter used for severing slicklines and cables downhole. The eCutter is activated by an electronic timer and trigger module, making it ideally suited to deployment in highly deviated and complex-geometry wells. Unlike other cutters, it does not rely on impact or explosives. The eCutter offers the same ability to cut all types of industry wire up to 5/16-in. heavy-duty Dy-form cable. Peak offers activation with a range of preset countdown times. A light-­emitting-diode operability indicator located within the tool provides confirmation of controller functionality and timer commencement on surface. The result is a powerful and clean cut inches away from the top of the tool string. The eCutter can then be retrieved quickly from the well on the recovered upper section of cable to which it is assembled, enabling the subsurface safety valve to be reinstated and making the well safe until fishing operations can be carried out to recover lost tools.
