Controlled aperture ball drop

Outil de liberation de balles a ouverture controlee


A controlled aperture ball drop includes a ball cartridge that is mounted to a frac head or a high pressure fluid conduit. The ball cartridge houses a ball rail having a bottom end that forms an aperture with an inner periphery of the ball cartridge through which frac balls of a frac ball stack supported by the ball rail are sequentially dropped from the frac ball stack as a size of the aperture is increased by an aperture controller operatively connected to the ball rail. A control console displays a user interface that permits an operator to control the controlled aperture ball drop to drop frac balls only when desired.
