The Venturi Viper™

The Venturi Viper™ Plunger

Venturi

BREAKTHOUGH INNOVATION

APPLICATIONS

  • Patented innovative design bridges gap between continuous and conventional run plungers
  • Dynamic Seal™ provides an ideal solution for horizontal and directional wells
  • Proven in a wide range of wells from low to high rates
  • Very effective in Low Gas-Liquid Ratio (GLR) wells

FEATURES AND BENEFITS VENTURI

  • Fast fall and efficient lift with no moving parts
  • Behaves like a traveling gas lift valve
  • Supersonic gas flow through venturi lightens liquid load
  • Spin-Cleaning action works on plunger fall and upstroke
  • Variable groove depth and spin turbulence increases sealing efficiency
  • Hardened steel plated with electroless nickel for extended life
  • Titanium versions for safe, low impact on lubricators
  • Exterior connecting holes direct spinning turbulent
    gas to tubing wall acting like a pressure washer
    causing an enhanced seal

AVAILABLE IN THE FOLLOWING SIZES
