Venturi Quick Drop Plunger

DESCRIPTION

The Venturi Quick Drop Plunger bridges the gap between bypass plungers and conventional plungers.  It is often the first choice on newly installed plunger lift systems.  The Quick Drop is similar in design to the Venturi Bypass Plunger.  The only difference is a pre-drilled 12mm orifice in the center of the tool to limit fall velocity and thus reduce the potential for BHA damage.  The venturi effect in the Quick Drop Plunger occurs within the shift pin.  The pressure reduction across the pin assists in keeping the pin up while the plunger travels north, as well as keeping the pin arrangement free of debris.

APPLICATIONS
  • Flowing wells with high gas or liquid volumes
  • Ideal for wells with high production rates
  • Designed for strong wells that recover casing pressure quickly
  • Wells in the initial stages of liquid loading
  • Waxy wells as a mechanism to clean tubing
FEATURES & BENEFITS
  • Optimum deliquification with high cycle rates unloads stronger wetter wells
  • Astralloy valve cage assembly for high durability
  • Long travel valve design eliminates premature valve closure in slug flow
  • Minimal off time required
  • Valve closes on contact with bottom spring assembly
MATERIAL SPECIFICATIONS
  • Suggested replacement OD on all solid designs is 0.03" wear
  • All HTSR 4140 and L80 plungers are treated with zinc phosphate
  • All plungers are available in a range of sizes and metallurgy for your toughest applications
