Up-jet Float Shoes
With standoff and the Tornado Up-Jet effect, the Up-Jet Tornado washes past ledges and wellbore restriction, enhancing fluid circulation and gives you 360° cement coverage around the casing. The Tornado directs fluid circulation to the area of the wellbore where it is also needed - the narrow side of the casing.
The Tornado has demonstrated excellent results in historically difficult well cementing areas, horizontal wells and wells where differential pressures may be critical. The solid straight blades of the Tornado not only guide the casing into the wellbore (sliding by ledges), but also reduce drag, eliminate scrapping, clogging between blades and provide proper standoff for primary cementing. The cemented centralized float shoe anchors the casing which will in turn minimize casing back-offs.
