"hydropuls®" is a pulse process for the abrupt expansion of highly compressed gas that increases or restores the productivity of wells or helps in the development of wells. The equipment has been successfully implemented in different parts of the world showing that it improves well efficiency and, consequently, well productivity. The technique is currently used in 25 countries around the world, with important customers such Suez, Danone or the Berlin Water Group. The equipment contains a pulse generator that can produce pressure pulse trains using a valve system capable of releasing, in very short times (milliseconds), the energy accumulated in the pulse generator in the form of highly pressurized gas, producing hydraulic shock waves. At the same time a cavitation effect (hollow suction) is caused due to the sudden volume change, which leads to the formation of a "vacuum bubble", which then collapses and thereby generates a hydraulic "suction wave". “hydropuls®” is potentially interesting for all well operators and well owners as well as for professionals who have to contend with the problems of well aging.
