Ball Launching System

Ball Launching System

Ball Launcher For Sliding Sleeve Completions

With full remote operation, operators gain reduced cost and increased frac time productivity.

  • The system—consisting of ball launcher, remote control panel and launch valve assembly—offers quick assembly.

    Ball Features:
    Balls are easily and sequentially loaded into an atmospheric launcher (ideal for dissolvable ball applications) Balls remain physically visible until deployment into the launch valve assembly, offering prevention of incorrect launch sequence.
