Ball Drop Frac Plug

The ProDrill Original Series Composite Frac Plug is designed to be used for temporary zone isolation during stage fracs in horizontal and vertical wells. The composites used in construction allow for short drill time and ease of operation. ProDrill Original Series composites can be run with any wireline setting tool or tubing run hydraulic setting tools. Cast iron slips are hardened to wicker depth only and set in up to P110 Grade casing. Pump down rubbers are available for all sizes. The Composite Frac Plug is sealed off by dropping and pressuring against a Phenolic Frac Ball.

Caged Ball Frac Plug

Caged Ball Frac Plug

The Express series caged ball frac utilizes a simple Ball / Cage Adapter that houses a ¾” Brass Ball in the upper ID of the plug. When zonal pressure is greater from below the plug, the ball cage allows the lower and upper zones to comingle. When zonal pressure is greater from above, the ball seats thus isolating the zones.

  • Available in 4 ½” and 5 ½”
  • Sets securely in up to P110 Grade casing.
  • Compact and easy running
  • 8,000 K / 275 Deg

Ball Drop Frac Plug Configuration

Express Series Drop Ball Frac Plug

After the Ball Drop Frac Plug is set, the Inner Diameter remains open thus allowing wireline operators to continue work above. A ball is then dropped from the surface and pumped down until it seats on the tool. Once the ball is seated, the operator can pressure up against the Frac Plug.

The Shear Sleeve Adapter used to set the plugs is designed so that the user can, if needed, run the Drop Ball “in place” inside the Adapter. This gives the user to choice to utilize the plug as a Flow Back Plug without having to drop the ball from the surface.
