Patent No.: US 2017/0268322 A1
ESP TOP BYPASS VALVE™
The ESP TOP BYPASS VALVE™ was designed to extend pump runtimes by ensuring flow to the pump if the intakes plug off from sand, scale, or paraffin deposits.
The ESP Top Bypass Valve™ is installed at the top of the bottom hole assembly. If a pressure differential greater than 33 psi is reached, the valve opens, bypassing the plugged intakes, allowing continued production.
The ESP Top Bypass Valve™ can be used in combination with any OSI system.
Minimizes the impact of plugging events
Reduces production loss due to plugging
Extends equipment run time
Provides large particle filtration
Can be combined with any OSI system
