PFT’s field-attachable CaymanTM Fail-Safe* Penetrator represents an advance in safety with benefits to both field operators and the environment. The penetrator is equipped with a mechanical means of retention within the tubing hanger, as well as a mechanism to allow the ESP cable to pull away under a prescribed load. In the event of a downhole failure of the production tubing, seal barriers remain in place and well control is maintained. Comparable systems currently in use offer no means of retention. In the event of a tubing failure the entire penetrator will be pulled from the tubing hanger, leaving an open pathway for wellbore fluids to escape to the atmosphere. Such circumstances may jeopardize public safety, as well as damage the surrounding environment.

PEEK Insulator
PEEK is well suited for all downhole applications. Depending on the material grade, PEEK can work continuously at 260° C (500° F). PEEK, in comparison to molded rubber, does not take a “set” when put into compression nor is it subject to gas penetration.

Cable Seal Assembly
Our innovative “floating” cable seal design incorporates the latest technology in elastomers with the ability to adjust to thermal expansion and decompression.

Connector Body Parts
Components are carbon steel and meet NACE MR0175 specifications. The black finish provides maximum corrosion protection as well as lubrication for the threaded components.

While the matching thread profiles on some PFT components may allow them to be connected to products supplied by other manufacturers, PFT does not advocate or recommend this practice. Mating PFT products with those from other manufacturers violates PFT product warranties, and invalidates any and all safety certifications for that product.
