What is CRC? It's THE term in the oilfield right now.
CRC is Complete Rod Control.
CRC is acheived through Black Mamba's End-to-End Rod Control system. Steel or fiberglass, it doesn't matter. Black Mamba continuously reinforces sucker rods to the point at which they cannot buckle, yet the follow the path of the tubing with ease.
Compression in the rod string isn't a bad thing - so long as the rod string stays in CONTROL. Black Mamba's helical rod stabilization prevents all the negative side effects of buckling traditional sucker rods.
I keep hearing about Black Mamba Sinker Rod - I thought I was supposed to use K-Bars?
Sinker Rod IS the new K-Bar.
Black Mamba's economical approach to complete rod string stabilization allows for a 3:1 cost per foot improvement.
500 feet of sinker bars? How about 1500 feet of CRC Black Mamba Sinker Rod.
With so much direct rod protection, surely drag loads are increased, right?
Drag loads are driven off of coefficient of friction and side-load only. Surface area influencing or increasing drag is a myth, and actually goes against the laws of physics. Side-load is computed from a few factors:
- Friction coefficient of plastic-on-steel (lubricated and at temperature)
- String design,
- Pump size (fluid load); and
This is a radical design - Does Black Mamba require special handling at the well-site?
Black Mamba's guided rods should be treated with care, just like any API Sucker Rod. Follow all API 11B Recommended Practice (RP) guidelines and you’ll have no issues whatsoever.
