Electric Submersible Pumps (ESP) are expensive pieces of equipment that can be time consuming to install. The most frequent cause of ESP start-up failure is damage to power cables and control lines during tubing installation. The frustration and high cost associated with pulling, servicing and re-establishing a unit that had just been installed raises questions about the current methods of cable protection.
S.U.N. Engineering carries a full line of Winterhawk’s downhole cross-coupling cable protectors. Winterhawk’s unique answer to down-hole cable protection combines a state-of-the-art ergonomic design with high strength material. The result – a low cost, rugged and durable cross-coupling cable protector that can be installed quickly and easily with hand tools.

ESP pump power lines are most susceptible to damage where they must traverse tubing couplings. The Winterhawk cross coupling cable protector clamp features an ellipsoidal body profile that eliminates coupling contact with the casing, thereby reducing the potential for tubing string hang-ups and power cable damage.
This cross coupling cable protector was developed with the roustabout and field service technician in mind. The protector’s exceptional, modular design allows for quick and simple replacement of any component. The three piece unit snaps together with pliers and can be disassembled just as easily with a standard screwdriver.
The protector body is cast from a special, NACE MR0175 compliant 60-40-18 ductile iron that retains its superior mechanical properties even at extremely low temperatures. High strength, toughness, corrosion resistance and good creep properties at elevated temperatures make this an ideal material for down-hole applications. The unified fastener assembly is made of high-strength 304 stainless steel for toughness and durability.
The Winterhawk cross coupling cable protector can be installed in seconds by one person using a ratchet and a 9/16″ deep socket. Little dexterity is required; therefore, cold weather installation while wearing heavy gloves remains a quick and easy procedure. Installation time can be reduced even further if a powered driver is utilized.http://sunengineeringinc.com/contact/
The Winterhawk cross coupling cable protector is far and away the most economical and utilitarian ESP power cable and control line protector in the world today. Contact S.U.N. Engineering, Inc. for more information.
