XTractR™ BOP Junk Catcher

The XTractR™ BOP Junk Catcher is a robust, wellbore clean-up tool and can be run individually or modularly as part of the ArmRdillo™ Wellbore Clean-Up System. The XTractR™ BOP Junk Catcher can be adapted to most common casing sizes and any drill pipe combination.


  • Robust Mandrel with optional Integral Pup Join
  • Quick Drain Ports allow fast emptying on the rig floor to inspect contents
  • Robust, free-rotating Wiper Cup catches debris which has been jetted from the BOP and Wellhead
  • Shrouded Filter Screen can be customized with various mesh sizes to suit varying applications
  • Can be quickly assembled redressed on location with simple hand tools
  • No external bolts, clamps or fasteners that can come loose down hole


  • Cost savings
    • The ArmRdillo™ Wellbore Clean-Up System integral pup joint reduces rig handling time
    • Field serviceable at the rig-site with basic hand tools
  • Increases Well Productivity
    • A properly executed wellbore clean-up reduces fine debris which can block screens and pore throats reducing well productivity
    • The filter screen captures sands, junk and debris which can block pore throats
  • Integrity
    • Available with high torque connections reducing the need for reduced strength crossovers
    • Reducing Non-Productive Time
  • A robust wellbore clean-up is proven to reduce nonproductive time during the completion of the well
  • Reduces premature failure of completion equipment by debris which can interfere with valves, electronics and other hardware


  • BOP Jetting Operations, during pre-completion wellbore clean-up operations where it is run in tandem with our Short Time Jetting Tool or other similar tool to capture any dislodged debris which can otherwise fall downhole
  • Can be run below a wear brushing retrieval tool or during wellhead cleaning operations
  • Can be run during riser clean-up and displacement operations to prevent debris from falling downhole


  • The BOP Junk Catcher is typically placed at the end of the BOP Jetting string
  • Optional, a Short Time Jetting Tool or MAGStar Jetting Tool may be spaced around 1 stand above the XTRactR™ BOP Junk Catcher
  • With the XTractR™ BOP Junk Catcher below the wellhead, the BOP can be jetted and any debris which is dislodged will be trapped inside the tool and can be retrieved at surface
  • The XTractR™ BOP Junk Catcher can be quickly emptied at surface to inspect contents and can be redeployed quickly if necessary
