Pumps
ALC offers a comprehensive range of pumps from a floater pump, compression pump, abrasion
handling and gas handing. Within the following pump section, we present our more common pump
configuration in the product tables specifically:
Standard Floater Pump
A center tandem, carbon steel pump of floater design with tungsten carbide bearings in the pump
head and base for radial stability.
Standard Compression Pump
A center tandem, carbon steel pump of compression design with tungsten carbide bearings in the
pump head and base for radial stability.
Abrasion Resistant Compression Pump
A center tandem, carbon steel pump of compression design with tungsten carbide bearings not only
in the pump head and base, but also evenly spaced along the entire pump housing within the pump
stages for enhanced radial stability.

ALC pumps can be configured and built in numerous ways to address the downhole operating
conditions.
Available options:
Floater and Compression pump
Carbon steel and stainless steel head, base, housings with carbon steel and monel fasteners
Tungsten carbide head, base and stages for abrasion handling
HNBR and Aflas elastomers
Monel and Inconel shaft
Boronise internal coating
All the pumps have ALCs published pump curves that show the characteristics of a single pump
stage when tested according to API recommended practice 11S2.

Intakes and Gas Handling


ALC offers several intake configurations to provide operators the flexibility to customize ESP systems
to specific conditions. Depending on well conditions, it can be in the form of a simpler intake adapter
with inlet holes or a more complex gas separation device.

Intake
A standard intake can be used when the well is producing above the fluid bubble point pressure or if
a small amount of free gas is being produced.

Gas Separator
The gas separator is based on the principle of the separation of particles of different densities under
the action of centrifugal forces. In this design, a rotating field of centrifugal force is created. The
separated gas is vented to the annulus while the remaining fluid enters the pump.
ALC can provide the following gas separation devices:

338 Series Rotary Gas Separator


380/400 Series Rotary Gas Separator
380/400 Series Vortex Gas Separator

These separators are available in multiple options and materials. They can be installed as single
sections or for extreme conditions, upper separators are available that can be installed in tandem
above a single section separator.

Motor Seals
The ALC advanced motor seals incorporate state-of-the-art technology, materials and operational
excellence for premium motor protection to extend run life for the most demanding applications.
The motor seal is a configurable design with bag and labyrinth chamber selections available in 2 or 3
chamber configurations. The seal can be assembled in multiple configurations to best fit the well
conditions.
All ALC advanced motor seals come equipped with a specially-designed, high-load, bi-directional
thrust bearing that facilitates high horsepower and deep-set applications.
Standard configurations:
Carbon steel constructions
Type2 mechanical seal with silicone-carbide seats and monel trim
HNBR elastomers
Available options
Stainless steel head, base, seal bodies and housings
Monel trim
Aflas elastomers

Power cable
ALC power cable provides a comprehensive range of surface and downhole cables for low
temperature, benign well conditions to high temperature, high GOR applications.
The power cable is available in an assortment of temperature ratings and configurations. The power
cables are provided in both round and flat profiles, while the motor lead extension (MLE) only comes
in a flat profile. All are available in either 4kV or 5kV voltage rating.

Downhole Sensors
ALC system is fully compatible with any industry standard downhole sensors.

Surface Power and Control


ALC has a wide range of surface power and control equipment which includes ALC intelligent motor
controller and variable frequency drives (VFD). ALC surface electrical equipment is designed and
manufactured taking into consideration system reliability, system automation and system
transportability.
The system is offered with a variety of accessories that are individually tailored to adapt the
standard system or to the specific needs of an application such as sinewave filters, cold weather
heating, Bristol chart recorders, external lightings, backspin detection and downhole tool
integration.
The equipment is supplied in individual units or in a fit-for-purpose skid system. ALCs Nema 3R/4
control room skid systems are manufactured for:
