Ball and Seat Design
Pump Cage Design
Double Valve Cages
Years of product research & developments had led to significant improvements to our pumps, these innovative designs are proprietary to Black Gold Pump & Supply Inc. and go above and beyond the standard API 11AX recommendation to exceed performance, reliability & durability.
These improvements enable our pumps to perform better than the standard API 11AX rod pumps the general market offers. Performance benefits include:
Better solid handling
Better gas handling
Higher pump efficiencies
Longer pump run life
Reduced failure modes
Explore below the different technology that we have in placed to make this happen.
BALL & SEAT DESIGN
Alternate ball sizes can be utilized to help in these applications
Care must be taken to ensure the correct ball size, cage lift area, and seat size is utilized. If the wrong configuration is used, the ball can crack the carbide seats, damage and deform the ball
Plugging/sticking in the ball and seat due to solids, or heavy oil is common when the wrong configuration is used
The smallest alternate ball for the cage is highly recommended due to there being the largest clearance between the cage and the ball.

PUMP CAGE DESIGN
Full open type cages should only be
used, providing 4x times better flow
than the traditional API three hole cages, reduces impact against the ball due to there being three points of contact instead of one point of contact area.
Traditional API cages are prone to
plugging and lower flow rates through
cage due to there being a smaller square inch area for the fluid to travel through.
The full open cage provides excellent
valve action in sandy, heavy oil, scale,
steam, and gas applications.
Black Gold's pump cages also have a better fluid velocity profile, reducing ball rattling and fluid wash.

DOUBLE VALVE CAGES
Double valves increase the life
of the pump
More durability in tough well
Prevents premature failures
Highly recommended to run in
wells with high solids
Black Gold Pump & Supply is
the proud inventor of the
Designed for horizontal,
deviated, and fluid-pound
Traditional plungers has a pin end with a go
With Black Gold Pump &
Supply's design, your cage will
never part in the hole again
STANDARD API PLUNGER
BLACK GOLD MACHINED PLUNGER
Black Gold Pump & Supply designs and manufactures grooved plungers used throughout the oil industry
Oil is held in the grooves, which
allows it to stay lubricated; increasing life of the plunger, barrel, and efficiency of the pump.
The grooves in the plunger also help move sand, heavy crude oil, scale, and trash.
