CentriLink SHIELD harsh-environment motor lead extension
Ensure the electrical integrity of your electrical submersible pumping (ESP) systems in harsh downhole conditions with the CentriLink SHIELD™ harsh-environment motor lead extension (MLE) from Baker Hughes.
Adapted from field-proven safety valve technology for completions in demanding deepwater environments, the CentriLink SHIELD MLE’s robust design mitigates the potential for gas and fluid ingress into the motor and the power cable. The CentriLink SHIELD MLE seamlessly integrates with CENtrilift™ XP motors and CENtrilift XP motors with Vanguard™ construction. The MLE includes several design features that prevent installation-related issues that can negatively impact system uptime. The MLE incorporates three metal-on-metal primary seals that feature a compression fitting assembly attached to non-corrosive Monel encapsulated copper conductors. The seals seat securely into a tapered port in the motor head assembly. By eliminating the elastomeric materials and the majority of the potential leak paths typical in standard plug-in MLE designs, the CentriLink SHIELD MLE handles pressure changes and reduces the potential for H2S migration into the motor and cable. As a result, your system is protected from catastrophic damage resulting from rapid gas decompression.
