(2022032) Understanding Rod Loading

Presenters

Russell Stevens and Gary Abdo

Lufkin Rod

Understanding rod loading is vital to reducing failure rates in reciprocating rod lift systems. By changing the minimum stress and using the modified stress analysis instead of the modified goodman diagram, manufacturers are “tricking” you into using high tensile strength and/or premium sucker rods in your rod designs. This presentation will attempt to explain rod loading why most rod lift applications do not require or need  high strength and/or premium sucker rods.
