REGEN: Combining production with protection
REGEN with Lufkin Well Manager™(LWM) controller fully regenerates power back to the source when overhauling loads occur, so you don’t need auxiliary braking resistors. The regenerated power is returned to the line to be used by nearby loads.
With REGEN, the pump rate is adjusted to match the well’s condition on every stroke, based upon the previous stroke. That gives you peak production and reduces your maintenance and overall operating costs.
REGEN protects your equipment from experiencing downtime because of mechanical limits and difficult pumping applications. By slowing a unit just enough to avoid working load violations, REGEN manages rod float problems and peak rod load issues with heavy oil. The LWM is always monitoring the equipment and production to provide the best response if a malfunction is detected.
