Apergy UNBRIDLED ESP Systems Installs Permanent Magnet Motor Powered by its SMARTEN Variable Speed Drive
The field trial of the ESP system featuring Reynolds Lift’s all-stainless steel, modular 200 HP PMM combined with a standard SMARTEN VSD was installed for a customer in the Mid-Continent region. The ESP was started on the first attempt with no issues and is running flawlessly, producing 3,800 barrels of fluid per day. The well is connected to UNBRIDLED ESP Systems’ LOOKOUT™ remote-monitoring service to effectively manage the ESP system’s operations.
The SMARTEN VSD design also addresses one of the safety considerations when using PM motors. The drive protects field personnel from the full electrical voltage produced by back spinning when a PMM shuts down. The patent-pending touch-safe compartment separates the high-voltage, heat producing elements in the drive from the low-voltage electronics.
“We began working with Reynold Lift in November and brought a PMM solution to market in just five months, and on Apergy’s first anniversary,” said
“Our in-house designed SmCo™ motor product line features patent-pending modular PMM technology that can reduce customer electricity operating expenses by more than 25 percent,” said
