Assembly Method and Mechanism for Reduction of Impact Force

A method and mechanism was designed to provide a reduction of impact force against specific parts that require repeated use. The mechanism is composed of a Crush Ring, which is the main component that absorbs the impact force. The Crush Ring is installed on the same plane as the direction of the impact force via set screws, washer and retainer keys. The Crush Ring is uniquely designed to allow it to be easily removed after usage.

Several tests of the component called the ballseat Cage (1) were completed. The tests involved applying pressure to shear screws and then suddenly release the ballseat Cage (1). The sudden release allowed the ballseat Cage (1) to move and impact against another component called the Lower Anchor Mandrel (6) which damaged the ballseat Cage (1). In order to prevent any damage to the ballseat Cage (1), a mechanism composed of a Crush Ring (2), Set Screws (3), Washers (4) and Retainer Keys (5) were inserted in between the ballseat Cage (1) and the Lower Anchor Mandrel (6). When the ballseat Cage (1) releases, it will impact against the Crush Ring (2), which absorbs the impact force and potentially prevents any damage to the ballseat Cage (1).
