QCI’s P3000 Cable Seal Penetrator is the smallest solution on the market making it perfect to replace failed and unreliable bulkhead penetrators that use pigtails and splices. QCI stocks more than 105 Dummy Mandrels to convert and improve existing ESP wellheads to QCI’s P3000-2 Cable Seal Penetrator.
The Dummy Mandrel matches the outside profile of the existing penetrator that passes through the hanger and adapter. Seals and threads are incorporated to the profile to ensure a direct fit. Inside the Dummy Mandrel is QCI’s simple P3000-2 seal pocket profile and a 1-1/4” internal thread at the top to connect the local junction box.
This simple solution continues to deliver the most reliable ESP cable solution in to reduce cable and penetrator failures on and offshore while reusing valuable wellhead assets.
Inside the Dummy Mandrel, a P3000-2 is field installed and can support either flat or round ESP cable. It supports a full range of ESP cable sizes from #6, #4, #2, and several #1 cables in both leaded and nonleaded styles.
The P3000-2DM penetrator system is unique in that it offers a direct feed-through of the pump cable to the surface without requiring a splice or downhole connection of any kind. Once on the surface, the downhole pump cable is connected to the surface cable within the QCI conduit box, available in Class 1, Division 1 and Class 1, Division 2 configurations. Surface cable is also available to complete the run to either a junction box or direct to the ESP controller, unlike other brands.
The P3000-2DM system is rated and certified to 5,000 psi API WP (13,500 psi Proof Test), and since the P3000-2DM system is a direct feed-through, the maximum rating for voltage and amperage is dependent on the pump cable. P3000-2DM system is offered with FM, CSA, ATEX, and IECEx Certifications to support worldwide installations.
