Side Pocket Mandrels – Round Body Design
Mana’s round body design incorporates an integral one-piece machined pocket and tool discriminator that is offset from the tubing bore to allow full tubing drift room for well service operations. The tool discriminator deflects larger tools from entering the pocket area and also protects the valve latch. These side pocket mandrels feature a single side pocket that accepts 1 inch and 1-1/2 inch outside diameter flow-control devices. An orienting sleeve in select designs allows an option to use positive kickover tool alignment to run or retrieve gas lift valves in deviated wells.
Mana Completion Systems uses symbols to identify the features in the selection of side pocket mandrels.
