Select my PCP pumps

Selecting PCP hydraulic (Q & P) is simple but you may need a complete PCP system fine-tuned to your specific application and challenges where details, and experience, can make the difference.

Key point to select:

  1. PCP Technology (PCP - PCM Moineau™, HRPCP - PCM Slugger, AMPCP - PCM Vulcain™)
  2. PCP hydraulics Q & P, pitch length and swept angle
  3. Elastomer type
  4. Rotor size
  5. PCP Driving System (Rod Driven, Continuous rod driven, Insert System, PMM, ESPCP)
  6. Completion accessories (Centralizers, Top tag, Gas Separator, Anti Vibration Sub, Tubing Drain, Torque Anchor, ON/OFF Tools, Paddle rotor, flush Valve…)
  7. Surface drive equipment

Conduct compatibility test

Elastomer of stator is the heart of PCP. Elastomer is not an inert material and well fluids may affect its geometry (swell, shrink) and/or mechanical properties (softer, harder).


Before running a PCP, conduct a compatibility/swelling test with 3 objectives:

  • Confirm Elastomer PCP project feasibility
  • Identify the most appropriate elastomer
  • Select the best rotor size

All PCM workshop are equipped with laboratory.


Send to the closest PCM workshop:

  • 500ml of your fluid sample
  • key well data (oil API, BSW, Downhole Temperature, downhole pressure)

PCM will conduct and report swelling tests as per ISO15136-1 standards.
