AIG usually pays for itself during the first year and continues working for many years with very little maintenance
AirShock® Impulse Generator uses bursts of compressed gas to remove buildup from well screens, gravel packs and surrounding aquifers, providing unparalleled efficiency in rehabilitation and development of all types of wells. Lowered into the well by means of a hose reel, AIG starts working automatically as soon as an operator opens the compressed gas (nitrogen or air) supply valve on the control panel.
AirShock® Impulse Generator is more than an efficient tool for water well maintenance and redevelopment. AIG is an innovative approach, revolutionary in its simplicity and eco-friendliness. AIG is engineered specifically for water wells AIG usually pays for itself during the first year and continues working for many years with very little maintenance.
Compressed gas (usually nitrogen or air) is supplied from any gas bank (like high pressure bottles). The tool fires with frequency 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 predetermined 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.
