    If the tool is pulled into the top of the lubricator and the wire stripped from the rope socket, the tool catcher will engage the tool's fishing neck and prevent the loss of the tool string into the well bore. The tool catcher is designed to be fail-safe: it is permanently in the catch position and requires hydraulic pressure to release.

    NOV Elmar hydraulic tool catchers for electric line are normally supplied with an integral ball check valve assembly, and a top connection into which a grease head can be directly screwed. As an option the tool catcher is available with a glycol injection port. For slick line operations NOV Elmar hydraulic tool catchers are available with quick unions top and bottom.

    NOV Elmar hydraulic tool catchers are available with ratings from 5,000 psi to 15,000 psi WP, STD and H2S service. Collet sizes vary from 1" to 1 3/4" fishing necks. Multi-catch options are available in two ranges: 1" to 1 3/4" and 1 3/16" to 2 5/16".
