The Cyclone Assembly reduces stuck plungers and premature wear of the barrel and the plunger in solids conditions, preventing costly well servicing and pump replacements.
When the Cyclone Assembly is incorporated into a pump design, sand, grit, iron sulfide and other particulates are collected within the tapered rings of the Cyclone Ported Section during the upstroke. On the downstroke these particulates, along with those collected between the barrel and the plunger, are forced inward through the axial evacuation ports and into the center of the plunger. There the particulates commingle with other fluids entering the pump and move into the tubing.
Removing damaging solids from between the barrel and plunger prevents these surfaces from rapid wear, like vertical scoring. In addition, frictional forces are not allowed to generate without these accumulations, which removes stress from the pump and rod string and stops stuck pumps, automatic shutdowns, and parted rod strings from occurring.
The radial ported vanes cause the fluid and particulates to constantly rotate permitting the barrel and plunger to wear more evenly, which results in a longer pump life and a more cost-efficient pump assembly. While the pump is not operational, settling solids are redirected into the internal area of the plunger, reducing the possibility of stuck plungers and excessive barrel wear. With the simple addition of the Cyclone Assembly, operation costs are greatly reduced by extending pump runs and reducing rig utilization and downtime. For best results, the complete Cyclone Assembly is recommended. The Cyclone Assembly is not a barrel plunger; it is a solids remediation tool to be used in conjunction with a standard API plunger design. All parts should be assembled to API specifications.
