DAPALCO utilizes state-of-the-art design and water jet precision to deliver a simple, yet sophisticated alternative for retrieving broken pipes and pumps from wells that are otherwise inaccessible. The Fetch works by “finding” the opening of a broken pipe or pump and locking it into the jaws (dogs). It grips the broken pipe using pressure from pulling up on the retrieval rope. If the object being recovered is lodged into place and cannot be withdrawn, the Fetch has a recovery system that allows it to release the pipe. The Fetch can retrieve pipes or tubing with a minimum pipe diameter of 1 inch,25.5mm and a maximum sidewall thickness of 3/8 inch. 9.525mm
1. Determine the depth of well. Use a length of rope or cable for the retrieval line long enough to reach the bottom of the well. Ensure that the tensile strength of the retrieval line meets the requirements needed for recovery A secondary rope or twine of equal length will be needed for the release line.
2. Tie the retrieval line securely to the large hole at the top of the Fetch. The release line is tied to one of the smaller holes on the release mechanism.
3. Test the Fetch with each use by sliding the release mechanism back and forth. It should move easily without binding. If there is significant resistance, check the tool for any obstructions or sediment that could prevent it from operating properly. Call for technical support if problems persist.
4. Keep the retrieval line and the release line separated to prevent tangling. The Fetch will not work properly if the lines get tangled. While holding the retrieval line, or securing it to an external support outside of the well, drop the Fetch down the side of the well casing. Pull up on the main rope to recover the object. This may take several attempts at different points along the well casing (see diagram).
-Helpful tip: Broken pipes are usually located on the side wall of the casing. Attempting different points along the side wall will yield better success than dropping it down the center.
If the Fetch will not pull up the pipe, or if it gets stuck, relax the retrieval line and pull up on the release line. This relieves the pressure on the dogs, and allows the Fetch to be recovered.
