Rod dynamics in sucker rod pumped wells comprise overshoots and oscillations in rod loads occurring from downhole load disturbances. Sucker rod dynamics contribute to problems such as premature rod breaks, rod fatigue, and tubing wear caused from rod buckling.
The Unico LRP® pumping unit has an advanced motion profile with active damping algorithms to attenuate dynamic load variations. The motion profile is automatically adapted to the dynamics of each particular well, pumping speed, and current conditions.
LRP® dynamic load management and improved motion profile extends the life of downhole rods, tubing, and pump as compared to traditional beam-style pumping units. Download this whitepaper to know how.
