Penny Pincher Pump Off Controls have been applied to a broad range of beam pumped wells. shallow wells and deep wells (13,000 + feet), wells with difficult pumping conditions, stripper wells and high volume wells have all benefited from the application of D-Jax pump off controls. The low acquisition cost makes the Penny Pincher an excellent choice for "stripper" type wells that cannot justify the expense of more costly controls.
Eliminating load cells and strain gauges means the Penny Pincher is a very "user friendly" device for field personnel to operate and maintain. The Penny Pincher is simple to calibrate and stays calibrated. No special training or equipment is necessary to keep Penny Pinchers operating at peak efficiency.
Fiber Optic circuitry makes the Penny Pincher one of the most reliable pump off controls available.
The opto-isolated power supply greatly reduces the chance of power surges and electrical spikes causing catastrophic damage to the control logic board. Also, the absence of load cells and strain gauges eliminates a maintenance "trouble spot" associated with load cell controls.
No strain gauges or load cells eliminates a complicated maintenance "trouble spot" associated with ALL other pump-off controls.
The D-JAX "time based" method of pump-off detection used by the Penny Pincher allows for a wide range of applications. Penny Pinchers are in daily use around the world for shallow and deep wells (13,000 feet), high volume and "stripper" class low volume wells.
Eliminating load cells and strain gauges means the Penny Pincher is a very economical device to purchase, operate and maintain. The simplicity of the Penny Pincher design means field personnel will spend less time performing repairs and maintenance. Also, the absence of load cells and strain gauges eliminates a costly maintenance "trouble spot" associated with load cell controls.
