NitroTuff Abrasive Technology

Thru Tubing Solutions prides itself on a commitment of continuous improvement. By expanding upon proven technologies and practices in the industry, the NitroTuff Abrasive Technology was developed to provide a safer alternative to conventional methods. Instead of using explosives or wireline perforating, NitroTuff uses a mixture of sand, water, and gel for tubular cutting and perforating.

Whether perforating, cutting, or slotting; TTS can provide fit-for-purpose tools for challenges that require unique solutions.


The patented Bypassing Perforator allows the operation of tools below the perforator, the perforator itself, and then below the perforator again in a single run. This system is typically run with a motor for toe prep operations to provide a means of milling/cleaning to bottom prior to and after perforating.

Key features
  • Single Trip Flow-Thru/Perforate/Flow-Thru
  • Proven Perforating Technology
