Lightning Production Services provides LightningRod, a fully engineered continuous sucker rod string that has only two connections – top and bottom. LightningRod helps operators dramatically reduce their failure rate by distributing side loading along the entire length of the rod string, instead of concentrating loads on the couplings. Care and Handling failures are also minimized by eliminting the need to make a connection every 25 or 30 feet. The technology also eliminates the need for costly rod guides which introduce increased friction into your rod pumping system.
LightningRod continuous rod is manufactured from high performance steel alloys that have tighter cleanliness specifications than competitive rods on the market. LPS ensures that imperfections in the steel are minimized to the largest possible extent, reducing the areas where corrosion can attack and increasign the durability of the rod.
