FracXion Unity fully composite frac streamlines multistage hydraulic fracturing operations while delivering unmatched reliability.
The ReacXion Eco-RX Dissolvable Frac Plug provides the performance of Steelhaus’ standard ReacXion Complete plugs with increased reliability while remaining cost effective.
It’s unique design allows maximum fluid velocity past the element minimizing swabbing of the elastomer. This feature allows faster run times without compromising pressure or temperature integrity during setting. Conveyed via regular pump down operations, the plug can be set with conventional Baker style or similiar setting tools. Ball in place or ball drop can be determined on location allowing for flexibility on frac programs. The EcoRX proprietary coating allows the plug to be set in position hours prior to stimulation.
Load Transfer Technology
To achieve these results, the design combines expandable liner hanger and conventional pump down plug technologies. The design utilizes casing as a supporting member, transferring the load from the ball to the ball seat, through the slips and onto the casing. Pressure exerted on the ball during stimulation completes the setting operation while continuing to reinforce the integrity of the tool’s seal, forming a tighter seal as pressure is increased.
The tool contains less than one quarter the material of standard pump down plugs providing faster dissolution while decreasing wait times for full production. The load transfer technology allows the minimalistic design to be feasible. After use, the plug will dissolve in standard chloride solution or even very low-salinity fresh water, depending on plug material.
Represents thousands of testing hours
We have tested over 2000 material coupons and almost 50 coatings to gain a comprehensive understanding of how dissolvable materials perform in the wellbore environment. We have used these learnings to optimize the design and materials of each ReacXion plug to ensure dissolution at the desired time. This has resulted in proprietary materials and coatings tailored for Bimodal dissolution (delayed) in low salinity and high salinity production environments.
