It is important to remember that what makes this lubricant unique is it’s XPL+ bonded, positively (+) charged, at the molecular level, technology. Because of this technology, our lubricant is attracted and bonds to metal parts like rods and tubing, which are negatively (-) charged. This combination creates a magnetic effect, laying down a thin film lubricant which holds its bond for about 24 hours. Because of the XPL + technology, ProFlow significantly improves efficiency, reduces maintenance costs, and reduces the downtime of the Artificial Lift Systems (ALS) used to extract raw crude oil.
What is XPL+ Technology?
ProOne’s XPL+ Xtreme Pressure Lubrication technology is the core for ProOne’s line of high performance lubricants. XPL+ has a strong ionic (+) charge so it bonds to metal giving it extreme pressure performance and protection.
How It Works
On a bench cross axis friction machine test, bearings are subjected to pressure from a spinning race. Using a leading downhole drilling fluid without XPL+, the bearing sustains severe damage at only 4,000 pounds per square inch of pressure. With ProOne’s exclusive XPL+technology, there is minimal damage at 200,000 per square inch of pressure…over 50 times the pressure.
