Provide more uniform stress concentrations than traditional designs

Camco gas lift KBMM-R series side pocket mandrels accept 1-in [25.4-mm] -OD flow control devices and are made up as part of the tubing string when preparing a well for gas lift production, chemical injection, waterflood, or other special applications. KBMM-R mandrels have a round body, which provides a strong, robust design with better, more uniform stress concentrations when compared with the traditional oval-body mandrel designs. The KBMM-R mandrels are available in a variety of tubing sizes and connection thread types.

The KBMM-R mandrel also incorporates a new body and pocket window design, which reduces overall welding.

Optimize production with unique design features

KBMM-R mandrels feature a  one-piece pocket and a tool discriminator that keep larger slickline tools from entering the pocket area while guiding the smaller side pocket devices into the pocket. An orienting sleeve located in the mandrel's upper swage helps ensure precise alignment and operation of positive kickover tools in highly deviated wells.

Standard side pocket mandrels are manufactured from high-quality low-alloy steel.
