Design Considerations

Choose Rod Size


When design a rod string with EHT, the first decision
is on rod size. Comparing to traditional sucker rod for
PC application, EHT rod with the same diameter
offers 20-30% higher maximum torque. So a smaller
diameter rod might be suitable to replace traditional
rod.
Connection to polished rod
Use EHT crossover to connect to polished rod. The
crossover has EHT female connect at the bottom and
API sucker rod pin on the top. Use polished rod
coupling to connect the crossover to polished rod

Connection to PC pump
Use EHT crossover to connect to pump rotator. The
crossover has EHT male connect at the top and API
sucker rod pin on the bottom. Regular sucker rod
coupling can be used to connect the crossover to the
pump.

Select Rod Guide


Add rod guide to deviated section of the rod string to
reduce tubing ware. Select rod guide size to fit tubing.
For best guiding result, use Exceed Spin Guide.
