When it comes to sucker rod, there are 2 options available - a conventional sucker rod and a carbon fibre rod. But it is important to choose the right & suitable one on the basis of its benefits & uses given in the attachment.
Sucker Rod and Carbon Fibre Rod at a Glance When it comes to sucker rods, you have two main options: a conventional sucker rod or a carbon fibre rod. By understanding what each is and what it is used for, you can make an informed decision about which would be better-suited for your situation. Conventional Sucker Rod A conventional sucker rod is a steel rod measuring between 7 and 9 metres. Sucker rods come in an array of sizes, making them suitable for various RRP and PCP applications. Sucker rods are usually used in conjunction with sucker rod guides. These are made from plastics with high-performance additives to increase strength, reliability, and production performance. Guides decrease contact of the metal of the sucker rod with the metal of the tubing, therefore increasing the lifespan of the tubing. Rod guides come in a few different forms, allowing you to choose the right option for you according to application and whether you need paraffin removal or protection against wear. Options include: - High flow twisted, for highly-deviated wells. This minimizes paraffin buildup. - Straight vane, for reciprocating in low corrosion environments. It reduces fluid turbulence. - Extended straight vane, for reciprocating in high-volume wells. This features a wider vane to better distribute load and improve protection from wear. - ShurSpin, for cavity pumping. This is able to lower hydraulic resistance and mechanical friction, leading to less torque. Carbon Fibre Rod
