For well intervention applications, the M-I SWACO WELL SCAVENGER vacuum debris removal tool captures and removes debris from the wellbore. The tool pumps driving fluid through the fluid jet pump, generating reverse circulation flow around the bottom of the tool. This reverse circulation path allows the system to pick up debris and capture it in situ. As debris is transported into the tool, it settles in the debris chambers as the fluid velocity decreases. The fluid then passes through the filter screen to remove suspended materials. Ferrous debris can be collected on the internal magnet section.
