Chemical Injection

Corrosion Protection with Chemical Injection Centralizer

Preventing the adverse effects of wellbore corrosion is an ongoing battle during production operations. While highly effective, chemical injection for corrosion protection also creates a a dilemma in that injecting too little may not stop the corrosion or buildup, but adding too much wastes product and can create downstream emulsion issues.

When installed below electric submersible pump (ESP) motors, our chemical injection centralizer serves as an ESP system centralizer with the additional capability of a chemical injection system. The uniform 360-degree spray ensures even dispersion that reduces the risks of single-dispersion injections while enhancing ESP performance and reliability. Additionally, the centralization function of the chemical injection centralizer allows equal spacing between the motor and casing, which provides equal flow paths for the production fluid to flow – preventing hotspots in the motor and increasing ESP motor cooling.

Forum’s chemical injection centralizers are part of our extensive Multilift artificial lift solutions catalog.

Benefits
  • Improves chemical treatment by uniform dispersion
  • Improves efficiency of ESP motor cooling

Cross Coupling Protector

Downhole cables are especially vulnerable during installation and retrieval. Our cross-coupling protectors support virtually any configuration of control lines, electric submersible pumps, umbilical lines or encapsulated bundles in the wellbore. The protector’s channel shields cables and lines as they transition across the coupling, helping to prevent damage during installation or retrieval of completions. The compressive fit design accommodates oversize or undersize tubing per American Petroleum Institute specs and securely engages the cable or lines to the tubing.

For your most challenging well environments, Super 25 cross-coupling protectors provide the same functionality as our standard protectors with the added benefit of superior corrosion resistance. No matter which configuration you choose, installation is quick and easy with air-driven hydraulic tools.
