Will a Slimline® help minimize gas locking?

Yes. The smaller diameter of the patented Slimline® Tubing Anchor Catcher increases flow-by capacity and reduces the overall restriction, or “choke,” provided by a conventional tubing anchor catcher.  This allows natural gas to break out easier up the annulus and not be forced through the pump, thereby greatly reducing the occurrence of gas locking.
