Circulating Pyro Torch

MCR_benefitsMCR’s CIRCULATING PYRO TORCH tool was developed using the same principles as the successful and field proven RADIAL CUTTING TORCH system. In most conditions, adequate flow into the annulus is required when expecting a successful cut while running an RCT job. Explosive perforators and punchers are not reliable at producing consistent holes that provide sufficient flow, having a dramatic effect on success when cutting with the RCT. MCR’s CIRCULATING PYRO TORCH delivers the required annular flow prior to cutting and provides a consistent and reliable punch in coil tubing, casing and drill pipe. By utilizing the latest in MCR’s proprietary non-explosive, non-hazmat rated fuel technology, you can complete your job faster and safer than ever before.



MCR’s CIRCULATING PYRO TORCH assembly is lowered into the well to the desired depth. MCR’s THERMAL GENERATOR ignites and activates the primary fuel load causing an increase in internal pressure. Following internal pressure rise, plasma exits the torch which perforates the target pipe. By design, the CPT cutting jet forces the tool against the wall of the pipe; the high frictional forces between the CPT and the wall of the pipe are greater than the thrust forces exerted by the pressure bubble, stabilizing the perforator to make the cut. It is this feature that allows MCR’s perforators to function properly in plugged pipe situations.

CPT’s are available for:

  • standard applications
  • undersized for restrictions
  • HP-HT environments
  • custom tools available


Generator Safety Sleeve™ (GSS)

• safely dissipates all THERMAL GENERATOR energy in the event of operator activation error on surface

Remote Firing Mechanism™ (RFM)

• data logging tool and firing system; safely enables all MCR cutting systems
