PCM Vulcain™ ultra high temperature pump

With a PCM unique and patented ultra-high temperature PCP technology, PCM Vulcain™ high temperature oil transfer pump boosts usual PCP temperature limitation up to 350°C/660°F. 

With a metal stator replacing the elastomer, the PCM Vulcain™ All- Metal PCP (AMPCP) features the same geometry and advantages as a conventional PCP but with the elimination of elastomer temperature and compatibility limits.

It runs at low intake pressure; keeps good volumetric efficiency (even when pumping 100% water and steam) and can handle very viscous fluid.

These features make the AMPCP technology highly versatile, as it is virtually unaffected by transient periods such as: SAGD warm-up period; beginning or end of the production in CSS; erratic heat front propagation or fluctuation during steam flood production.

All metal PCP key features & benefits

Best artificial lift system for unconventional oil production meeting the requirements of all thermal recovery methods: SAGD, CSS, Steam flood.

CSS & STEAM FLOOD: Comparison with Sucker Rod Pumps

  • Ability to steam through the stator during steam injection (CSS only)
  • No rod fall when viscosity increases
  • Ability to pump across a wide range of temperatures and water cuts.

SAGD: Comparison with ESP

  • Through stator steaming during warm-up period
  • Flow rate highly adjustable versus reservoir response
  • No seal or motor downhole, increasing system reliability (steam breakthrough, flashing)
