Product Sheet Bottom Discharge Valve
Valve for fluid production through and around the pump.
The bottom discharge valve is a two-component part placed on the barrel assembly between the standing and traveling valve. The valve acts as an intermediary valve that displaces approximately 10% of pumped fluid to the annulus between the outside of the pump and the tubing wall. The displaced fluid keeps particulate matter from settling and sticking to the pump and keeps fresh fluid moving past the exterior of the pump, greatly reducing the adverse effects of corrosive fluid.
