jet cutter tool

GR Jet Cutters can cut a broad range of downhole tubulars by using a circumferential charge that sends out a 360° radial explosive jet. They are ideal for cutting coiled tubing, tubing and casing during salvage operations, and they can also be used for pipe recovery in applications where chemical cutters are ineffective. Jet Cutters can even cut through corroded, scaled and plastic-coated pipe, and can operate in higher temperatures than chemical cutters can. Jet Cutters sometimes leave a flare at the severance point, which must then be smoothed off with a mill before the cut tubing or casing can be recovered.
