Venturi Junk Baskets


Tartan’s Venturi Junk Basket is designed to remove debris from the wellbore. Fluid is pumped down the tool string and out through nozzles, creating a vacuum within the tool. Wellbore debris is then sucked into the tool and remains trapped between the filter screen and catchers.

The tool nozzles are adjustable and easily changed to alter the flow rate and pressure to suit individual applications. The Venturi Junk Basket can be run with a motor and washover shoe for specific operations where rotation is required.


  • Cleans wellbore of junk and debris
