Pro-RodTM is the leading innovator of coiled sucker rod in the world. It's main manufacturing facility is located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
Pro-RodTM is manufactured from micro-alloyed, modified hot rolled carbon or alloy steel. Coiled sucker rod is available in diameters of 13/16” (20.6 mm), 7/8” (22.2 mm), 1” (25.4 mm) & 1 1/8” (28.6 mm) and in steel grades of 1536M (Carbon), 4120M (Chromium-Molybdenum) & 4330M (Nickel- Chromium-Molybdenum).
Raw coils are uncoiled, straightened and welded together using a butt-fusion process. Pro-RodTM then uses high temperature induction furnaces to Quench & Temper the steel. This heat treatment process coupled with the metal’s chemical composition, produces the necessary hardness, toughness, corrosion properties, metal strength, microstructure and tensile strength that is optimal for continuous coiled rod in artificial lift systems. The rod is then coated with an oil soluble coating which protects it from atmospheric corrosion in storage. Pin end connections are welded on to the end of the rods using a butt-fusion process. The rod is then coiled onto transport reels ready for installation. Quality control inspections are preformed and recorded at each step of the manufacturing process.
