Well service pumps are used in oil wells where large amounts of crude oil are extracted. These pumps are specifically designed for a variety of industrial well service applications such as fracking, acidizing, and matrix stimulation. Both triplex and quintuplex pumps are used for such operations.
Here is a quick description of the functioning of triplex and quintuplex pumps.
Triplex Frac Pumps: Triplex frac pumps are used where a high-pressure stream with great accuracy is required. It not only offers great performance but also ensures operational safety in various applications. Because of their positive displacement feature, triplex frac pumps always deliver a predictable volumetric flow regardless of the pressure. It happens because the inlet stroke gives a fixed volume of liquid and physically moves it in and out of the pump without any loss or inefficiencies. The performance of the pump is also free from specific gravity which allows the input power and output flow to be unaffected by the liquid density.
Quintuplex Frac Pumps: High-performance quintuplex pumps are able to deliver up to 2700bhp. Such pumps are highly effective at high rod load and sand out situations. Quintuplex frac pumps also involve state of the art lubrication of all the moving parts. With their superior valve design, they are able to reduce fluid end erosion that also extends the life of the fluid end. The unique design of the suction valve retainer significantly reduces the fatigue life of the liquid and reduces operating costs too. Quintuplex frac pumps are able to provide increased fluid capacity at slower speeds which extend the life of all the major components.
At Shale Pumps, we understand the need for quality and performance. We only prefer high-quality triplex and quintuplex pumps for exceptional well service and other drilling applications.
The key features of well service pumps available from Shale Pumps are outlined here.
- Accurately designed suction valves that are easy to install, replace, and maintain.
- Higher rod-load capacity that results in increased fluid pumping volume. The durability of the pump can also be increased by maintaining and equivalent pumping volume at slower speeds rather than maintaining a shorter stroke.
- Unique tie rod design eliminates the issues with conventional stay rods also reduces power end failure issues.
Almost every pump is factory tested at full horsepower and rod loads before making it available for buyers.
