Center Rod Plunger

Maximize strength and impact tolerance.

Center Rod Plunger

The Center Rod Plunger is designed to fall at high speeds similar to a Pacemaker, but does not require as much flow time at surface to separate a secondary piece. This tool is designed as an intermediate step between Pacemaker candidates and conventional plunger candidate wells. The Center Rod Plunger requires no additional equipment at the surface to adapt the well for this application, and can run in wells with existing subsurface equipment. This plunger has a one piece center rod that runs through the fishing neck. The fishing neck is side pinned and chain forced to maximize strength and impact tolerance.
