Kinetic Blowout Stopper (K-BOS)

Piston Well Services is the proud supplier of the Kinetic Blowout Stopper (K-BOS) technology in Canada—“the airbag for the Industry.” 

The K-BOS from Kinetic Pressure Control is a shear ram that can shear and seal on any well in milliseconds without the use of an accumulator. 

Kinetic Pressure Control


Coil / Wireline / Tubing / Drill Collars
Whatever your shear BOP needs are.

The K-BOS is designed to cut anything above the bit and seal it instantly – even after full flow has been started. It is capable of cutting all typical tubulars, tool joints, and BHAs used for a given API bore size, and can also cleanly cut wireline in slack conditions. The rapid cutting action leaves a clean cut with minimal deformation and allows the K-BOS to cut and seal in milliseconds.
