Ball on Seat Composite Wireline Adapter Kit

A wireline adapter kit that allows the user to set a composite plug, discharge the perforating guns and pump down on the bottom hole assembly to release the frac ball retained in the kit.

A frac ball is placed in a collapseable ball seat inside a wireline adapter kit (WLAK).  The setting action of the WLAK opens a port to allow pressure created by pumping fluid around the adapter kit to act on the ball and seat.  This pressure forces the ball seat to move and expand, allowing the ball to be released from the WLAK.
