- Provides consistent burn times for reliable setting and shearing
- Maximizes the complete burn and provides reliable initiation with embedded secondary ignitors
- Utilizes standardized size in both #10 and #20 E-4 setting tools
- Setting frac plugs in plug-and-perf operations
Our TrueStage™ power charge uses next-generation technology to facilitate a simplified solution for reliable initiations with easy clean-up, and is compatible in multiple sizes.
Set plugs reliably
TrueStage power charges include a secondary, embedded ignitor that eliminates misfires and ensures reliable initiation. The main load compound generates enough gas force to fully set plugs and shear tools, reducing your need for wireline intervention. In addition, centralizers placed on the housing ensure consistent alignment and placement in your well.
Deliver dependable initiations
The proprietary compound cures into a solid which remains fully stable and stays hard, even at temperatures up to 400°F (204°C), delivering dependable initiations and avoiding issues associated with high temperature seepage. The uniform, high-energy formulation generates accurate, consistent burn rates for reliable set and shear times, eliminating potential errors from wireline companies such as premature pull-out or costly nonproductive time (NPT) spent looking for a burn event that has already happened.
Ensure universal deployment
With a standardized charge tube size, TrueStage power charges are capable of universal deployment in both #10 and #20 E-4™ setting tools as well as the 3 5/8-in. compact setting tool. This feature reduces your inventory and clean-up requirements. The combustible tube burns neatly, reducing downtime, and increasing crew efficiency associated with cleaning. The single-sized tube also mitigates field errors to help further reduce your NPT.
