Ported Helix Plunger Sleeve

The IPS Ported Helix Sleeve utilizes the original, patented, two-piece plunger design. By incorporating a 22.5 degree helix, this innovative new sleeve design will reduce lease expenses associated with paraffin cutting and hot oil treatments. This sleeve retains the large internal bypass area of the pacemaker plunger to reduce well shut in. Coupled with high-strength materials and other propietary system components, the Ported Helix Sleeve allows production companies to increase production and recoverable reserves while reducing operating costs.
