Technology AIRSHOCK® is an innovative, non-destructive and environmentally friendly technology for water well rehabilitation and development. AIRSHOCK® is based on the compressed gas continuous accumulation and its repeated sudden pulsing release in the well by means of the AIRSHOCK® Impulse Generators (AIGs). The process involves creation of a shock wave and oscillating gas bubble after each pulse resulted in removing hardened scale and biological build-up from the screen, gravel pack and surrounding area. The shock wave breaks up the scale on the screen, while the expanding and contracting bubble forces water in and out of the gravel pack and aquifer ensuring a comprehensive washing process. In a very short time, a well is completely restored to the original level of efficiency. The method is unique both in success and ease of setup and operation.
Compressed gas (usually nitrogen or air) is supplied from any gas bank (like high pressure bottles). The tool fires with frequecy of 15-25 fires per minute. Pressure may be easily changed from the surface during the AIG operation. The tool never releases all the accumulated gas during the pulse by automatically closing the discharge ports when the pressure in the tool drops lower than the prederminated pressure value.
The AIRSHOCK® Impulse Generator provides the comprehensive treatment of each single foot of the screen as being gradually moved down-up and up-down in the well.
When combined with chemicals, the process creates strong agitation, increasing the dissolution of incrustation in the well screen, gravel pack, and surrounding aquifer much faster and efficient than ordinary chemical applications.
We provide contractors with a complete AIRSHOCK® kit:
AIRSHOCK® Impulse Generator (AIG) (choice of 7 different sizes)
Hose reel + Control Panel
Contructors need to get supply of nitrogen or air cylinders for each job. Quantity of cylinders depend on the job.
