Tornar® is now a registered trademark

Archer is pleased to announce that the Tornar® name identified with the company’s
“wellbore cleaning technology” is now a registered trademark in the United States (US) and in European Union (EU) countries.

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) recently accepted the trademark and issued Archer with a registration certificate for the name. Tornar® has also been published as registered in the EU by the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).

“Tornar® is derived from the word Tornado and Archer. Coincidentally Tornar is also a Spanish word which means return to or give back, which is exactly what Tornar® Technology does, it returns the wellbore to a pristine clean condition. A tornado is a combination of high rotation and fluid velocity. These elements, together with fluid rheology, are the 3 single most important elements in efficient wellbore cleaning. Together they create "Tornar® wellbore cleaning".

Tornar® wellbore cleaning technology is designed for successful and effective wellbore cleanup operations, including the task of removing and retrieving any debris down hole.
