Other programs require you to specify pumping speed, plunger size, rod string design, unit size and other parameters—with no guarantees that the predicted production rate will be accurate. With RODSTAR, you simply enter a "target" production and the program automatically calculates the pumping speed, plunger size, optimum rod string design, pumping unit size and motor size you need to make your production. It is also the only predictive software of its kind to automatically design optimized steel, Corod, fiberglass or carbon fiber rod strings in seconds with the optimized wave equation.
The program can simulate over 4,000 pumping units—including long-stroke (Rotaflex), hydraulic units, and NEMA D or Ultra High Slip motors—and calculates the cost of the rod string and pumping unit. You only need to enter the cost values once, and they can be easily updated at any time. The rod string cost, along with the monthly electricity bill that RODSTAR calculates, allows you to better compare system designs.
