Pressure Activation Device Technology for Downhole Applications
An alternative technology to PADs for tool activation is shear pins. However, some of the disadvantages of shear pins technology include their:
- reliance on moving mechanisms to activate, which may become stuck due to corrosion or other well conditions.
- difficulty to install and change.
- requirement for precise alignment when multiple pins are used.
