The hydraulic wire-cutting actuator is used primarily during wireline operations. This actuator operates as a conventional actuator to open or close a gate valve during normal production periods; it also becomes a primary safety device during wireline operations by ensuring the well can still be shut-in in the event of an emergency. This is possible because of the springs which exert high forces into cutting the wireline cable, braided line, or coiled tubing. Cameron’s hydraulic wire-cutting actuators offer a reliable and robust design that can be installed in harsh and remote environments.
