Successful Oil Producers have installed a 'Sentry on all their wells. The amazing control of a "Self Managing" system works wonders for your production with minimum labor. Never pumps without fluid and eliminates all the labor of "well watching" and guessing pump cycle times..
Most Producers visit their wells every 2-3 days for wear, damage, fallen tree limbs, vandalism, and jot down the new crude oil production time. It is not unusual on a 100 well lease, with wells 300 feet apart, to check all the wells in 2-3 hours, and positively KNOW that all wells are 1) working, 2) the actual production time of each individual well every visit.
Procedure for start-up: 1) Disconect Jack from engine. Press START on the new Control panel and manually flip the man-auto switch to MAN, (2) Start the engine. 3) Once it is running, reconnect jack and flip switch to AUTO.
When all the available fluid is produced, the unit will automatically shuts down. An Hour Meter indicates actual production time. You will know the real production time of each unit, each cycle! Extends time between well "rebuilds" because wear is greatly reduced.
"Complete Controls", Finger safe! 480 vac 3 phase with 277 vac controls, 240 vac single or 3 phase. Eliminate transformers.
Everything required is there, from timers (24 hour as shown, or electronic ),
Circuit breakers just for the controls, motor controls that monitor power required. Also a selector switch for manual or automatic controls. A Control Board that monitors and records how long each well pumped, and NEVER lets the well pump "DRY", or after Pump-Off Also a built- in Alarm Shutdown circuit !
A small additional control box (as shown) and sensor is added , and uses your existing breakers, motor starters, etc. for automatic operations. Eliminate the labor and time of "watching a well pump to pump-off".
Three sensor types are available:
1) The bridle mounted sensor, 2) in-line orifice sensor assembly, 3) the new sensor for wells with a Back Pressure Valve. The Sentry never lets the well pump without fluid. This greatly extends production periods between well rebuilds. The Sentry monitors every pump stroke for normal flow, and records the actual time of each cycle.
Makes a "Self Managing" control out of your existing units. The
Oil Well Sentry also manufacture a shut down control for non-Sentry units in cases of freezing temperatures, or a paraffin run that raises the line pressure to unsafe limits. The normal Oil Well Sentry's controls, with optional sensors for the "Add-On" or "Complete Control", have terminals dedicated to an Alarm Shutdown for many different reasons.
A high fluid tank level sensor for Shutdown Control is mounted in a stock tank to prevent any overflow spill. Controls have ability to shut down single well or entire lease to prevent spillover. Direct or Power Line communication available.
Multi's Products natural gas Power Unit is automated with the Oil Well Sentry's " add-on control to shut-off at pump-off. The 'Sentry manages the productive time producing fluids, not just operating a timed period. An hour meter records actual production time, not just run time!
NOW, a "self -managing control" that monitors the fluid level in the working barrel or volume of fluid produced, then stops the pump cycle when the accumulated fluid just starts to pump- off.
Time Clocks are required, but not without a Sentry. Eliminates guessing, watching, and estimating pump cycle times . Intelligently monitor the fluid in the working barrel or normal flow produced each stroke, and stopping the pumping cycle when the fluid pumps low, will extend well life because the well
never pumps without fluid.
Wear & Tear and Well re-building time is much less, and less energy is needed for increased production.
An Hour Meter displays the exact time the well was in production.
Never pumps after "Pump-Off" or dry!
Increase 10-100% or more crude oil using 30% less energy required for maximum production.
NOW YOU KNOW EXACTLY, NOT GUESSING, WHAT YOUR WELLS ARE actually PRODUCING!
This well, located in western Pennsylvania, was drilled by Quaker State in the 1970's. It has its own stock tank. It origionally pumped just one 45 minute cycle every day for 10 gallons of Crude Oil. A "Add-On" Sentry was installed in 2013. Four pumping cycles per day were set. Three days later, we discovered the well had pumped for only four- 7 minute long production cycles a day (that's all the fluid it produce), but increased the volume of oil 6 gallons a day or 1 barrel a week more.
Annual production increase of 52 MORE barrels of PA crude oil a year!
(Typical-52 x$ 70 =$3,640. Not bad for a $1,200 investment) AND 17 minutes less PUMPING TIME each day, no physical "monitoring" needed.
Less WEAR & TEAR (Extends well pulling & re-builds from months to years).
Eliminating just one " well pull" may pay for a Sentry, and a lot more CRUDE OIL!
This result is typical of our "self-managed" systems.
