Overview

Overview

Get reliable wellbore isolation and remote actuation with the Vault™ hydraulic barrier valve from Baker Hughes. Built for your most demanding lower completion applications, the innovative isolation ball valve allows for multiple remote openings throughout the life of your well.

 

Get assured isolation in your most extreme environments

The Vault hydraulic barrier valve is engineered to provide a robust, gas-tight seal while withstanding harsh wellbore environments—including high debris and high-pressure/high-temperature (HP/HT) conditions. The valve’s fully non-elastomeric design and metal-to-metal ball and seat interface help ensure reliable isolation without the risk of leaks due to degradation of elastomer components.

The Vault hydraulic barrier valve has been thoroughly tested and qualified to ISO14310 V0 compliance to offer a complete V0 barrier envelope if combined with the SC-XP™ packer. The valve has also consistently demonstrated zero gas leakage and a bubble-tight seal in tests up to 10,000psi differential, 15,000psi collapse, and 400°F ratings. The erosion-resistant, debris-tolerant construction helps ensure a quality seal for as long you need to isolate the well.

The valve is the industry’s first resettable hydraulic module, which can be opened remotely by applying differential pressure to its J-slot mechanism. The valve can be remotely opened and closed multiple times for the life of the well.

And for your applications that do not require remote actuation, the Vault™ mechanical valve offers the same functionality as the hydraulic valve, but is fully mechanically actuated.
