Hydrostatic Setting Tool

The Wellpro Group Hydrostatic Setting Tool (HST) provides the industry with a highly reliable, non-pyrotechnic setting device used for the installation of downhole tools such as Bridge Plugs, High Expansion Gauge Hangers, and Straddles.


The setting tool converts the hydrostatic pressure at the tool into an axial force. The short overall length of the HST has been achieved by incorporating a highly efficient ‘pressure multiplying’ piston area within the setting tool. This combined with a unique regulating device allows the hydrostatic well pressure to be boosted within the tool, which in turn provides the axial force.
