Mechanical Liner Running Tool (MLRT)
Vanguard Oil Tools & Services
MLRT – carrying mechanism for all mechanical liner systems. Simple right hand release mechanism. This tool also allows right hand rotation of a liner should it be required when running to planned TD.
The MLRT can be run with Drop Off Liner Systems, Sand Control Systems, Slotted Liner Systems, Screen completions, Sand Barriers and weight set Packers.
The MLRT has 4 basic functions, high torque ability via the “Torque sub” when in it’s profile in the setting sleeve, a drive sub to allow liner rotation should it be called for, a mechanical setting dog assembly which transmits weight to the packer or steel seal if used on a sand control application and high temperature seal (up to 320c) to allow testing to be performed on the “set” packer before retrieving the running tool. Release prior to setting the packer is performed via right hand rotation in a neutral position.
