Enhanced-geometry pumping unit

Reduce lifting costs

The TorqMax enhanced-geometry pumping unit is an alternative to a conventional pumping unit. For certain rod pump applications, it can help reduce torque and lower prime mover horsepower requirements, thus reducing lifting costs.

The primary differences between the TorqMax unit and conventional geometry units are as follows:

  • The structure of the TorqMax unit is shifted forward from the gear reducer toward the wellhead, whereas on the conventional-geometry unit, the center of the equalizer bearing shaft sits directly over the center of the slow-speed shaft of the gear reducer.
  • The crankpin holes are placed at an offset or phased angle on the crank arm of the TorqMax unit but run parallel to the crank arm on a conventional-geometry unit.
  • To maximize the effect of the advanced geometry, the TorqMax unit must always rotate clockwise, while a conventional unit can run in either direction of rotation.

The TorqMax unit is stocked in a variety of sizes to meet your specific application.
