A coiled tubing connector is a downhole tool which is made for coiled tubing operations. It is used to connect the coiled tubing string with the tool string. There are different types of devices that can be used in the coiled tubing operations. This connector device is designed to withstand the extensible forces and confirm that there is a hydraulic isolation between the coiled tubing string and the tool string.
Petropedia explains Coiled Tubing Connector
Different kinds of downhole tools are used when an oil well is drilled and worked on. A coiled tubing connector is a special mechanical tool, used in downhole operations. It is used to join the coiled tubing string with the tool string. The tool is specially designed in order to bear the different forces that can change under different pressures. It is also responsible for maintaining hydraulic isolation between the two parts – coiled tubing string and tool string.
