Fishing Magnets are used to retrieve all types of small objects having magnetic attraction from bore hole bottoms. Such undrillable objects as bit cones, bearings, slips, tong pins, and milling cuttings can often be retrieved only by magnetic attraction. These Fishing Magnets are particularly valuable for use prior to diamond coring. In a single trip, the Fishing Magnet will completely clean the hole of these damaging junk items, ensuring good performance and safeguarding the valuable bit.
Fishing Magnets may be run on wire lines or on pipe. Wireline operations have the advantages of speed and economy. Pipe operations have the great advantage of utilizing the generous circulation holes in the magnet to eliminate settlings above the fish, and to loosen the fish. Small size assemblies (with sucker rod connections) do not have circulation bores. Bowen has Wireline Adapters available to run between the magnet and cable head or rope socket. The Flush OD Type Guide is sold as part of the assembly. Cut-Lipped and Mill Type Guides are available as optional accessories
