AOT designed Drive Rods ®

Alberta Oil Tool Drive Rods ® are manufactured from micro-alloyed, modified special quality hot rolled alloy steel. Raw bar dimensions and tolerances conform to the AISI Steel Products Manual. Drive Rods ® for Progressing Cavity Pump application are available in 1" (25.40 mm), 1 1/4" (31.75 mm), and 1 1/2" (38.10 mm) body diameter and in 25'(7.62 m) lengths.
 

All rods are straightened and Eddy Current electro-magnetized inspected for surface defects. Both ends are upset by automatic high-speed hot forging. Rods are full length normalized to relieve residual stresses, air-quenched, and tempered to refine and homogenize grain structure, and surface shot-blasted to remove any remaining heat treat scale. Rods are also Norpeened (shotpeened) to improve fatigue life. Upset pin blanks are machined and dimensions gauged. Pin threads are cold-formed to strengthen the thread from fatigue. An inhibitor-lubricant is applied to each pin and thread protector installed. An oil soluble coating protects AOT Drive Rods ® from atmospheric corrosion in storage. All rods are bundled to prevent handling damage during transportation to the well location. Quality control inspections are performed at each step of the manufacturing process.

     1" Drive Rods® with 7/8" modified pins:     

              Nominal Diameter of Pin: 1-3/16".  

  • Originally designed to replace 7/8” rods in 2 7/8” tubing

  • Same torque rating as 1” Conventional Rods

  • Better suited for P.C. Pump Applications than 1” Conventional Rods, in any size tubing, due to less pressure loss across the coupling
