A Global Leader in Well Optimization


KUDU’s Specialized Technology Reduces Operating Costs and Enhances Well Production

Thanks to their high resistance to abrasive


and corrosive conditions, customers see
longer pump life and lower operating costs.
KUDU Tough Coat is a revolutionary spray
metal coating applied to PCP rotors using
advanced proprietary technology. The pat-
ented Tough Coat rotor is a unique technology
that is far more corrosion-resistant than the
industry standard practice of electroplating
chrome. Tough Coat reduces wear associ-
ated with both abrasion and corrosion, so
rotors will last longer and require replacing
less frequently — saving customers money. In
95% of field tests, Tough Coat prolonged rotor
life in adverse conditions, and continually
achieved high production rates. Tough Coat

GET THE MOST FROM YOUR WELL

KUDU continually reinvents the status quo through innovative designs


that benefit your productivity and bottom line. With 12 Canadian field
stores and multiple global offices; KUDU understands, adapts and
responds to your operating environment. KUDU’s dedicated team of
industry specialists have the best service standard in the artificial lift
industry and are always available for troubleshooting and training.

Not only can KUDU pump it up, but we optimize your production
through smart well technology. The PCP Well Manager adjusts
pump speed, monitors torque and measures flow rates. It reduces
premature pump failures due to pump off and the field monitoring
of fluid levels. The data is logged in real time and enables you to
view and implement changes remotely.

KUDU holds over 20 patents using Progressing Cavity Pumps in the


artificial lift field. This strong commitment for advancing Progressing
Cavity Pump technology exemplifies KUDU’s dedication to quality
and performance.

Bringing solutions to the surface since 1989.
