• Reduce job costs with simple cleanout fluids and smaller coiled tubing
  • Select from various tool designs depending on operational requirement
  • Maximize reliability and efficiency with easy-to-apply field procedures

  • Removal of loose fill material such as formation fines, proppants, perforating and milling debris
  • Removal of compacted solids or scale, requiring high-pressure jetting
  • Deployment in large-diameter, highly deviated, or horizontal wellbores



Whether you’re looking to remove hard compacted solids or loose fill material from your wellbore, the Tornado™ coiled-tubing (CT) cleanout system from Baker Hughes offers a solution. Offering unparalleled power and flexibility, the Tornado CT cleanout system helps boost your production by effectively removing a wide variety of solids from any wellbore geometry and trajectory.


Versatile deployment, consistent performance

The patented system can be easily run in conjunction with a range of bottomhole assemblies, including standard wash nozzles, motors and mills, or rotary jetting tools. This ensures an optimized well cleanout, regardless of the type of solids present.

Maximize your cleanout capability by combining the Tornado CT cleanout system’s field-proven operating methods with a suite of proprietary, high-performance downhole tools. Options include tools that offer full forward-facing washing capability while penetrating fill material. Switch to high-rate, uphole sweeping mode during your engineered wiper-trip procedure.

Simulate the progress of solids accumulation along the completion to the wellhead with the Baker Hughes CIRCA™ modeling software. The software integrates a unique solids transport simulator, which is built on results of nearly 10,000 flow-loop tests and correlated with thousands of successful wellbore cleanout jobs worldwide. With the CIRCA modeling software as part of your planning strategy, you get an optimized cleanout solution that includes required flow rates, circulation time, tool configuration, penetration, and wiper-trip speeds.  

By incorporating CIRCA modeling software and our powerful suite of downhole tools, you’re assured successful cleanouts that reduce future cleanout frequency and recover lost production.
