Title: Coupon holder for corrosion test downhole in a borehole

Abstract

This patent describes a wellbore having a downhole pump at the lower end of a production tubing string, a sucker rod string positioned within a production tubing and connected to reciprocate the downhole pump, the combination with the sucker rod string of an apparatus for measuring the rate of corrosion downhole in the borehole. It comprises a main body having opposed ends, means for forming a connection at the opposed ends by which the main body is series connected within the rod string to thereby suspend the apparatus downhole in the borehole, and further comprising; an axial chamber formed by an interior wall surface in the main body; radial ports extending through a sidewall of the main body and communicating the axial chamber with the exterior of the main body; wherein, the radial ports are oblated and include a lower curved end which is sloped downwardly and outwardly with respect to the longitudinal axis whereby reciprocation of the apparatus forces well fluid to flow through the chamber into contact with the coupon; the main body being comprised of an upper member and a lower member; means threadedly attaching the upper and lower members together in a removable manner; the chambermore » being a bore formed in the lower member; the insulating means being mounted to an end wall of the upper member; the end wall also defining the upper end of the chamber, the coupon extending downwardly into the bore formed in the lower member.« less
