Black Mamba - For Progressive Cavity
Progressive Cavity Pumping
Progressive cavity pumping requires the rotational movement of sucker rods or drive rods to link the surface electric motor to the down-hole pump. These wells encounter deviation just like other traditional sucker rod reciprocating lift wells, and often utilize sucker rod guides to prevent rod-on-tubing wear.
Available exclusively in our UPK material, Black Mamba provides extensive benefit for sucker rod protection and rod string control in Progressive Cavity pumping, just as it does for reciprocating rod lift.
A single fin design helically wrapping around the sucker rod (or drive rod) allows for auger like movement of the fluid - potentially providing more lift to fluid (instead of standard drag). Additionally, and unlike other products on the market, the vortex flow of our Black Mamba guide design is desired for movement of solids up the fluid column.
Erodible Wear Volume
Black Mamba, whether for progressive cavity pumping or for reciprocating rod lift, leads in Erodible Wear Volume and stabilization length. By maximizing the volume of plastic outside of the coupling diameter, PLUS utilizing engineered materials for the toughest environments, Black Mamba guarantees extended run times.
The design of Black Mamba, unlike anything on the market for sucker rod guides, is a single fin design. The drastic increase in flow-area is realized as there is minimal cross-section blocking the natural flow of the produced fluids. Whether pumping with reciprocating rod lift or progressive cavity, fluid flow is hydrodynamically advantageous.
Compared to other progressive cavity sucker rod guides or centralization products on the market, Black Mamba features 57% more flow area and 100% less fluid obstruction.
