The RMSpumptools ESP Shroud is a cylinder fitted around the Motor, Protector and Intake sections of an ESP. It is designed to reduce the annular area between the ESP and the casing bore, which allows the velocity of fluid by the Motor section to increase and subsequently help to cool the Motor.
The Shroud is simply constructed with a length of tube, normally between 25 to 30 feet, long enough to swallow the Motor, Protector and Intake sections, and is bolted with a split clamp unit to first ESP neck located above Intake.
Above the Shroud an RMSpumptools MLE Clamp is normally fitted to secure the MLE to the Discharge Head. At the bottom end, a Centraliser Guide is fitted to help secure the ESP section within the Shroud. The ESP Shroud is available in Alloy Steel for standard service and 13% Chrome for sour service.Top
