PCP pump range
Electric Submersible Pumps (ESP) have been the most recognized means of Artificial Lift System for high flow rates, and Sucker Rod Pumps (SRP) for low flow rates. Over the last thirty years, new pump technologies have arrived - such as the Moineau™ progressing cavity pump (PCP) - bringing improved efficiency and performance to the market.
The Moineau™ pump consists of a single helical steel rotor turning inside a dual helical stator moulded in elastomer. When the rotor turns inside the stator a double chain of watertight cavities is created and fluid is transferred from the pump intake to the pump discharge without shearing the fluid.
PCP unique features
The PCP volumetric technology allows easy adjustment of production according to rotational speed. With a variable speed drive, the same equipment can cover a wide range of production rate.
The PCP design is ideal for handling a wide range of viscosities, sand laden fluids and free gas. The PCP volumetric, non-pulsating and emulsion free system steadily handles fluctuating well dynamics, viscosities and free gas content.
PCM Moineau™ progressive cavity pump
Perfectly suited for a wide range of viscosities, the PCM Moineau™ conventional elastomer progressing cavity pumps ensures high production efficiency and optimal run life compared to other Artificial Lift technologies (such as ESP or SRP).

Elastomer production is rooted in the history of the company. We are one of the few PCP manufacturers who still produce their own elastomers. Read our recommendations for elastomers compatibility and swelling test.
PCM Slugger hydraulically regulated PCP (HRPCP)
The PCM Slugger significantly increases pump system run life compared to standard PCP in high GVF and/or high viscosity conditions, and can be used in any application where PCPs would be used. It is an easy upgrade to any PCM Moineau PCP.
PCM Vulcain™ ultra high temperature pump
Specially designed to be able to handle extremely hot, highly viscous, unconventional hydrocarbons and high temperature water, the PCM Vulcain™ is an exclusive patented all-metal progressing cavity pump using a specific technology capable of meeting the requirements of thermal recovery methods to perform efficiently at high temperatures.
ALS technologies comparison
Historically ALS is driven by ESP’s for high flow rate and SRP’s for low flow rate. Over the last thirty years new pump technologies arrived on the market to improve efficiency and performance such as PCP’s, jet pumps,...
