Expert Counterweight Balancing Software

Theta Oilfield Services


Using XBAL is the easy, accurate, fast, and safe way to balance pumping units. Are you spending a lot of money and time balancing pumping units? Do you want to minimize the time and expense required? Do you want to eliminate the field measurement of counterbalance effect? Do you want to eliminate the risk of injury or equipment damage when chaining off the unit? Do you want to eliminate the guess work of adding or removing counterweights? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then XBAL is the tool you need.

XBAL - Eliminate Field Measurement

Eliminate CBE Field Measurement

A common way of getting existing counterbalance data is by recording the counterbalance effect in the field, with a dynamometer system. This field measurement is time consuming and dangerous if you have to chain the polished rod.
XBAL eliminates the need for a CBE field measurement. You can simply select the cranks, or beam, and counterweights you have, and their positions. From this information, XBAL calculates the existing counterbalance moment, for crank balanced units that you can enter into your wave equation program to find out if the unit is overloaded or out of balance. XBAL works the same way for beam balanced units but instead calculates the structural unbalance.
