Mechanical Catch & Hydraulic Release

The Taylor Made Hydraulic Pulling Tool is used to latch & retrieve plugs, chokes, safety valves, and other downhole devices that have standard Internal fishing necks.  The tool is deployed in the engage mode and will not actuate to the release mode until pumping has ceased and pressure equalized at the tool.  Applying approximately 200 lbs slack off weight and increasing pump pressure sufficient enough to create approximately 500 PSI pressure drop will cause the tool to release.  The pulling tool will remain in the released position until pumping has ceased and the pressure at the tool allowed to equalize.   Once equalized, the tool will return to the engage position.  In addition, the tool design incorporates an emergency release feature that will mechanically lock the tool in the release position after excessive downward jarring has been applied.  The pulling tool may be pinned in the automatic release position and will actuate to the release position any time pump pressure is applied and requires no application of weight for actuation.
