Zilift uses permanent magnet materials to put downhole pumps where others can't

Zilift was established in May 2009 exclusively to develop and market permanent magnet technologies for innovative artificial lift applications. Our systems are defined by the high-power, compact design capabilities of permanent magnet materials. Zilift artificial lift systems deliver high torque or high flow in the most versatile, compact downhole drivetrain packages.

Zilift currently has two core product lines both aimed at achieving our mission—putting pumps where others can't. Whether the restriction is rig availability or wellbore geometry, our products provide artificial lift solutions where none exist today.

Zilift SpeedDrive offers through-tubing deployment and retrieval options without ever needing a rig. Now, you can deploy an ESP on cable or wireline and reap all the benefits of ESP artificial lift to new through-tubing, slimhole, live well intervention and restricted-access applications.

Zilift TorqueDrive is an integrated downhole drivetrain and PCP artificial lift system. Zilift TorqueDrive removes the compromises and failure modes that are associated with top drive systems. The system dramatically improves pump performance and wellbore placement options.

From slimhole, deviated, or horizontal wells to through-tubing deployment, only Zilift has the proven solutions for the most challenging artificial lift applications.

Zilift has a highly skilled and innovative workforce with a strong design and engineering base, covering

  • permanent magnet motor and pump technology
  • fluid dynamics
  • material science
  • rotor dynamics
  • high-temperature electronics
  • variable frequency drive (VFD)
  • software and control systems
  • well engineering.
