Rod Maintenance and Repair

Sucker-rod strings are highly stressed, lifting a great deal of weight through every cycle, and must be maintained to increase production. Repeated load reversals, corrosion, paraffin deposits, pounding fluid, and buckling due to unanchored tubing could all cause tubing and rod wear. When a rod string fails, Rapid Rod will investigate the failure to determine the root cause and will try to extend the life of the rod string through maintenance and repair. All sucker rods need to be in good functioning condition during any type of project because the sucker rod string is often highly stressed and usually fails due to repeated load reversals. Tubing and rods tend to wear down from responding movement in the well triggered by pounding fluid or an un-anchored tubing buckling. Corrosion, scale and paraffin deposits can also easily quicken these failures.
