Shear Release Joint

The shear release joint applies a predetermined tension to the coiled tubing string.


The shear release joint allows the parting of the coiled tubing string by applying predetermined tension.

Used primarily in cement stinger operations as a simple, effective emergency release, it incorporates shear screws that can be used in various combinations, allowing a wide range of predetermined shear settings. The released part of the shear release joint can be retrieved using an industry-standard GS-type pulling tool.

When ordering shear release joints, please specify size and thread connection.
