|20140031135||SAFETY GUARD FOR A ROTATABLE MEMBER - Embodiments of a safety guard, fit concentrically over a rotating member, such as a rod assembly, which extends outwardly from apparatus, such as a drive head. The guard may be restrained during normal operation for preventing entanglement of personnel or other apparatus with the rod assembly which continues to rotate within the tubular guard, or may be unrestrained during normal operation. When unrestrained, the guard is free to co-rotate with the rod assembly, but has a low moment of inertia such that the guard decelerates rapidly when restrained so as to prevent entanglement. An anti-friction interface between the guard and the rod assembly is formed by the material of manufacture of the guard itself or by bearings or bushings supported in an annulus between the guard and the rod assembly.||01-30-2014|
|20130062048||PULLING CLAMP FOR CONTINUOUS ROD OR COILED TUBING STRINGS - A pulling clamp is provided for releasable connection to a blunt, uphole string end of a continuous string. A main clamp body has clamp bore therethrough and having a string-receiving opening at the pulling end for receiving the string end, an actuating bore at the pulled end and a tapered bore therebetween. A taper insert having a radially compressible gripping bore is locatable in the tapered bore and axially actuable between a passive first receiving position, for receiving the string end, and the active second gripping position for radially compressing the taper insert about the string end for actively gripping the string end therein. The taper insert can be axially actuated using a threaded main body and threaded top cap for sandwiching the taper insert therebetween, the top cap being threaded axially into and out of the pulled end of the main body between the passive and active positions.||03-14-2013|
|20110266005||CONTINUOUS ROD PUMP DRIVE SYSTEM - In a downhole rod-driven pump, continuous rod is used to drive the pump. The continuous rod is connected directly to the drive eliminating the need for a polish rod and an uphole coupling. A coupling is used to connect the continuous rod to the pump reducing restrictions in the production annulus and wear on the production tubing. Further, clean out tubing can be inserted into the production tubing beside the continuous rod and can extend therein to the pump without restriction. When the coupling is a threaded coupling, the continuous rod can be rotated in an appropriate direction to release the continuous rod from the pump when the pump is stuck. When the coupling is a shear coupling, the shear coupling can be sheared for releasing the pump from the continuous rod. When the pump is a progressing cavity pump and the coupling is a shear coupling, the continuous rod can be reverse rotated for changing the direction of pumping and if the rotor thereafter remains stuck, the shear coupling can be sheared.||11-03-2011|
|20080296011||Cam-Actuated Centrifugal Brake for Preventing Backspin - A cam assisted centrifugal brake or clutch system provides increased mechanical advantage to improve the output torque relative to prior art devices such as leading brake shoes. The brake or clutch engagement is cammed radially outwardly to engage a brake housing in one direction and guided to a disengaged position in the other direction. Centrifugal forces retain the brake in the disengaged position. Embodiments of the present invention are applied as a backspin braking system that is incorporated into a drive head for a progressing cavity pump drive system.||12-04-2008|
