Impeller Shaft Redesign
Market: Oil & Gas
Client Challenge: 12x 14 blender pump failure due to loss of impeller nut and shaft breakage.
TRINITY Solution: The nut and threads holding the impeller onto the shaft were redesigned to provide a stronger shaft-end. In addition, a new method of locking the nut onto the shaft was developed to reduce the chance of the nut becoming lose.
Processes & Technology: Proprietary
Extreme Abrasion Resistant Blender Pump
Market: Oil & Gas – Drilling – Completion & Stimulation
Region: SA Shale Plays
Client Challenge: One of largest operational problems facing the fracking industry today is the constant erosion of blender pump components caused by abrasive fracking fluid (containing sand and ceramic components), which delays operations until the pumps can be replaced, resulting in lost run time and lost profits.
TRINITY Solution: Conventional blender pumps are either cast from inexpensive low wear ductile iron or higher wear resistance high chrome metallurgy. TRINITY has developed a new proprietary hard coating technology that far exceeds the wear life of the high chrome. The new TRILOY XTREME™ pump armor doubles the life of the pumps wear components, resulting less downtime and higher profits.
