Say farewell to disposable and field redressable wireline setting tools with Fortress Downhole Tools’ premier CYCLOPS Recycling Setting Tool Program. Our built-for-purpose, all-inclusive, paid-per-stage service model provides a unique and cost-efficient alternative to disposable and field redressable tools.

The most ESG-compliant setting tool, CYCLOPS is a gas-operated, oil-free tool designed with advanced setting tool technology. The self-bleeding tool eliminates pressure release on surface, and offers no hydrostatic limitations. With minimal waste of only three sets of seals, the CYCLOPS setting tool is also compatible with industry-standard power charges and firing heads. The setting tool undergoes an extensive QA/QC program, which includes post-rebuild leak test and QC checks before each deployment, as well as dimensional and magnetic particle inspections conducted at regularly scheduled intervals.
