The A.L.I.I. Tool is a tubing isolation valve that provides positive well control before breaking wellhead containment. By design, the patented A.L.I.I. Tool is the only tubing isolation valve that utilizes the existing rod pump and rod string to function the valve open and closed. The A.L.I.I. tool allows you to change a polish rod or surface a rod pump under any condition, regardless of harmful gases, bottom hole pressure or temperature. The system eliminates the requirement for water or other more undesirable viscous fluids to maintain well control. A small amount of degreaser or de-waxer is all that is needed to clean the sucker rod string prior to surfacing it. Cost reductions will be drastic and immediate. Significant expenses associated with the recovery and disposal of kill fluids will now be non-existent.
The A.L.I.I. Tool can be utilized on any artificial lift well that utilizes a sucker-rod (beam) pumping system. The A.L.I.I. Tool has an advantage in the market by being the only tubing isolation valve that does not require the pump and rod string to be removed from the well in order to activate it. In order to operate our closest competitor’s isolation valve, there are numerous added expenses and additional equipment that is required. The A.L.I.I. Tool works by using the existing rod string and sucker rod pump to open and close the valve. It is a superior alternative for companies as it does not require additional equipment to be added to the wellbore design for valve operations (ie. External control lines, clamps and bands, etc.).

Internal collet fingers
Keeps valve locked in the closed position which gives extra safety factor to the A.L.I.I. tool.
Locking fingers lock valve closed to reduce risk of valve opening while tripping or snubbing out of the hole.
Custom manufactured for clients specific well with a range from cryogenic to 240°C or 470°F.
Create a seal for extreme temperatures to work for the client and achieve the best outcome. Can fit a variety of different applications.
Used during snubbing operations.
Extra level of security in snubbing.
