The Shear Ram is used in an emergency situation when you are required to cut and seal the wireline. The Shear Ram will offer a temporary barrier, until such times as the well can be securely contained. The Shear Ram can be used for well servicing in various applications such as slickline, braided line or e-line.
Always inspect the Wireline Valve for damage before and after using it. Where possible position the Wireline Valve with the cylinders aligned within 45° of the wireline towards the drum.
