New Product Release

Norris Sure-Spin Rod Rotator

A conventional friction-driven rod rotator with flat top caps doesn’t work in deviated wells. Excessive one-sided wears on guides and sucker rod connections occur, creating holes in the tubing and interruptions in production. Our Norris Sure-Spin™ rod rotator solves that problem. Let us mitigate rod, tubing, coupling, and guide wear in your wells and dramatically reduce your OPEX.

High-quality performance, aligned with cost-effective solutions

Improving well performance is a day-to-day concern for oilfield operators, with no time for down time. Our brands—Norris, Alberta Oil Tool, and UPCO—are the go-to sources profitability with some of the most demanding challenges. We improve long-term productivity and profitability by offering some of the most durable sucker rod components in our industry.

Case History

Extend your service life in high-temperature wells

Our proprietary polyether ether ketone (PEEK) blend allows rod guides to perform reliably in operating temperatures up to 480˚F (249˚C). Compared to PPA guides, we have field-proven results demonstrating that our PEEK-blend Norris high-temperature guides increase rod pumping run times.
