Plunger Lift Lubricators

Lubricators cushion the impact of the arriving plunger and afford easy access to the plunger for maintenance or replacement. With design options that include single or double outlets, flanged or threaded, standard or low-temperature ratings, and sizes from 1 ¼” to 3 ½”, PCS Ferguson delivers easily customized lubricators for any wellhead configuration and specification.

Other standard features include:

  • A long-length cap improves safety and allows easy access to the plunger for inspection, removal, or replacement
  • Designed and manufactured to API 6A standards
  • Traceability of all materials from the mill to the field
  • Patented poly spring, which maintains optimal impact absorption for speeds up to 3,000 ft/min

Plunger Lift Arrival Sensors

Arrival sensors detect the plunger’s arrival at surface and trigger the controller to operate the motor valve, a key element of optimized production. PCS Ferguson’s arrival sensors are engineered to detect 100% of plunger arrivals—with no false reports.

  • The 3DSO® arrival sensor incorporates an embedded microprocessor that continually calibrates to the well, providing the intelligence required to eliminate false arrival reports. And 3-D navigation technology detects plunger location in three axes to penetrate through the lubricator and accurately sense the plunger’s arrival every time.
  • The inductive arrival sensor alerts the controller of plunger arrival with a sensitivity that can be adjusted to gain the optimum signal. The electronic sensor’s adjustability is ideal for applications where plunger detection is difficult or unreliable. It is useful for older-style wellheads/catchers where a sensor housing is not available.
