FAQs

What are the key advantages of using Metal-Lok™ Ultra Wellhead Penetrator with k-PaC™ Technology?

This innovative wellhead penetrator relies on improved high performance insulators and sealing element and is most suitable for higher, continuous use temperatures at pressures up to 3,000 psi. It is field attachable to cable and uses an advanced concept design featuring BIW’s k-PaC™ pressure balanced technology. With pressure balanced technology, there is no differential pressure which can force well fluids into the connector body.

What are the most common applications for Metal-Lok™ Ultra with k-PaC™ Technology?

It is a next generation product designed for higher temperature applications and is suitable for steam injection applications, such as SAGD, where temperatures up to 260°C are encountered.

What is k-PaC™ Technology?

k-PaC™ Technology is a pressure-balanced design that compensates for normally destructive thermal expansion and pressure variation and operates over a wide temperature range. It is BIW Connector Systems' groundbreaking, patented approach that dramatically improves ESP system performance, reliability and ease of use in harsh environments.

Is Metal-Lok™ Ultra with k-PaC™ Technology compatible with other products?

The system consists of a completely re-designed penetrator and an advanced design downhole connector. It is totally compatible with BIW’s existing high temperature surface connectors.
