New Dual Ram 5000 PSI Rod Lock BOP is on the market to withstand fracturing high-pressure kickbacks.

With incorporated blind ram, this BOP is specifically engineered for rod pump applications subject to fracing pressures from nearby frac wells. It provides easy well close-off for streamlined, safe servicing.

Dual Ram's enhanced pounds-per-square-inch rating also enables Rod Lock to withstand high-pressure kickbacks common to shale oil and coal bed methane gas production.

Models feature two separate sets of well-closing rams. The first uses the maker's patented Rod Lock design to hold 25,000-lb of rod weight and prevent torsional rotation to 1,000 ft-lb. The second blind ram seals a well when a polished rod is not present.

Rod Lock is certified to seal well bore pressures to 5,000 psi maximum, declared 2,000 psi higher than any of the manufacturer's tools. This feature also allows PC pumps to be safely added to wells that consistently face high-pressure conditions.

Rod Lock BOPS are cited to allow well owners to save on labor and equipment costs associated with pump installation/maintenance, as well as to reduce worker injury risk and environmental contamination.
