• The industry’s least flow restrictive high expansion gauge hanger (1.3” OD)
  • Package with the SonicGauge™ for a real-time retrofit monitoring system
  • Gauge hanger sizing from 2-3/8” through to 9-5/8” tubing/casing
  • Can safely hold in excess of 3,000kg in flowing conditions



Our patented Barracuda High Expansion Gauge Hanger can be installed anywhere in the wellbore allowing operators to securely anchor acoustic telemetry gauges, memory gauges, fluid samplers, and other downhole devices using conventional slickline methods. The technology was developed as a deployment option for our SonicGauge™ Wireless Monitoring System allowing it to be retrofitted in a well that has no gauges or has a failed permanent downhole cabled gauge (PDHG).

We offer Barracuda HEX models which service 2-3/8″ to 9-5/8″ tubing/casing sizes. The gauge hangers offer significantly less flow restriction than competitive technologies and can safely hold in excess of 3,000kg in flowing conditions. Our unique pre-compression mechanism ensures that the hanger engagement force is retained with changing well conditions.

The name 'Barracuda' lends itself perfectly to the tools speed, strength and grip features, and most notably its compact size.



  • Slickline or e-line set using the Barracuda™ Electro-Mechanical Setting Tool
  • Setting Tool has a multi-run capability allowing for quick turnaround and reduced well site inventory
  • Ultra slim-line tool design to minimize flow restriction providing higher quality data
