Tubing Pumps

Tubing pumps are classified as high volume, heavy duty pumps. Maximum production can be expected with this type in relation to the size of tubing. However, because of the large plunger diameter, the fluid load will be greater than with an insert pump. Therefore, depending on the rod string and size of the surface pumping equipment, the depth at which a tubing pump can run is limited. The pump barrel serves as a section of the tubing. The plunger and traveling valve are run in the well with the sucker rods. The standing valve can be one of two types;  fixed or retrievable. 

The fixed type is attached below the pump barrel as part of the tubing string. A larger valve can be installed than with a retrievable type but the tubing must be pulled in order to repair it. When barrel repairs are required on a tubing pump, the entire tubing string must be pulled. This is a more expensive operation than a simple rod pulling job to repair and reinsert a rod pump.

The retrievable type standing valve rests in a cup-type or mechanical type seating nipple at the bottom of the tubing string. This can be removed with the sucker string by means of a valve puller which is permanently attached to the lower end of the plunger.

  • The "TH" is an API all percision heavy wall metal barrel
  • The barrel is connected to the bottom of the tubing, becoming a part of the tubing string
  • The "TH" pump is made for higher volumes and pressures
  • Extensions can be added to both top and bottom of the barrel, with proper spacing will allow it to be a stroke through pump
  • Barrels available in harden and honed, brass, steel chrome ID, and NiCarb
  • Manufactured with spray metal plungers
