Press release date: October 26, 2011

Reduce Rod and Tubing Wear in High Temperature Wells Willis, Texas - R&M Energy Systems offers a line of rod guides for progressing cavity downhole pumping applications. The New Era Blazer(TM) High Performance Rod Guides can effectively increase production and decrease workover costs by extending rod and tubing service life in standard and high temperature applications. These rod guides deliver maximum performance, even in well conditions that reach up to 500F. The New Era Blazer rod guide is manufactured from engineered plastics enhanced with performance additives specifically tailored to withstand high temperature well conditions. This high performance rod guide delivers effective rod and tubing protection and yet displays long performance life, even at high temperatures. The spin-thru design of the New Era Blazer rod guide reduces the torque that is generated by the mechanical and hydraulic friction of the rotating rod string. Additional features and benefits include:
  • Reduced wear resulting from the centralization of the rods inside the tubing
  • Compatible with steam assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) and steam flooded applications
  • Handles temperatures to 500F
  • Extensive range of sizes available
  • Long service life optimizes return on investment
  • Easily installed in the rod string R&M Energy Systems can recommend the proper rod guide design, material, spacing and auxiliary equipment for both beam and progressing cavity pump applications using its proprietary Rod Guide Advisory Program (RGAP(TM)) software along with its years of well monitoring and performance tracking. Wellbore deviations, dynamometer readings, workover histories, well operating conditions, completion information and production data are all used to properly select the most effective New Era rod guide design, material and spacing for each well.
