John Crane Inc. Key Developments
John Crane Introduces New Fiberglass Sucker Rod
Jul 16 15
John Crane introduced the Series 200, the next generation of fiberglass sucker rod that increases production output, improves load strength and reduces lifting costs for oil producers. The next generation fiberglass sucker rod provides producers added flexibility, particularly in more challenging well conditions such as deeper wells with higher load requirements or corrosive conditions. The corrosion-resistant rod provides an average working load that is at least 25% higher than all other available fiberglass rod alternatives. The Series 200 minimizes costly unplanned downtime with its increased ability to remove stuck pumps with a one-time pull load capacity that is at least 30% higher than other alternatives. It also facilitates easier and faster removal of rod strings due to a predictive end fitting failure mode at the connecting pin that alleviates fiberglass splintering and broom-sticking. Series 200 uses the same materials and API-standard connections as previous generations of fiberglass sucker rods, making it easier for producers to adopt this new technology.
